Canadian Senior Ladies 'Invade' Ireland

Last Updated on Tuesday, 01 October 2013 23:45 Tuesday, 01 October 2013 22:32

A fairly regular member of this most worthy contingent has also taken the time to share some of her and her countrymates' experiences as they competed in the Irish and British Senior Women's Championships.

It was day two of the Western Washington Women’s Invitational, and we were in the final group.
 
I asked about her plans of professional golf beyond her impending graduation.
 
“Oh, I don’t plan on touching my golf clubs for at least three years after college,” came the response that shocked my naïve 18-year-old ears.
