A few beers will help the win sink in for the Philippine stars

A big congratulations goes out to the surprise winners of the Women’s World Cup of Golf this weekend – Dorothy Delasin and Jennifer Rosales of the Philippines. Well done ladies! It was a joy to watch you and your enthusiasm this weekend, rain or shine. Even my golfguy is excited you won – he thought your team spirit was amazing.

The Philippines finished on a three-round total of 18 under par 198, with Korea’s Ji-Yai Shin and Eun-Hee Ji runners-up on 16 under par 200. Japan and Taiwan tied for third on 13 under par 203.

That was all great, but what I loved most was Rosales’ comments after the event, “The win hasn’t really sunk in at the moment, maybe it will when we have a few beers later.”
Ha ha…even the pros love the 19th hole!

For those of you who missed the excitement, here are the final results:

So what happened to Sweden (the favorites) and the United States? I was sure Pat and Juli would be in the top three. I wasn’t as convinced of Sweden, but still, 14 is pretty low for a favorite going in. Perhaps Maria Hjorth’s illness was the big factor there. It was said she was starting to feel sick on day 2 (which was probably why they dropped from tied for 4th after day 1 to 16th on day 2) and then day 3 she was really ill and needed a medical break early in the round. I can’t imagine how she continued to play.

But I was very happy to see Canada in the top 10 – tied for 6th ain’t too shabby gals…well done!. I can’t wait to see you at the Hunt Club in Ottawa this August (my home town) for the CN Canadian Women’s Open. I hear Paula Creamer will be playing along with a number of other greats. Lorena will have to attend to defend her title, so it should be a fantastic event.

So the season has finally started and with a bang. It’s over to Hawaii now…you lucky girls you!
