41st California Senior Women's Amateur Championship
May 20-22, 2019, at Quail Lodge & GC
Open to female members of the SCGA and NCGA, the California Senior Women’s Amateur Championship is designed for the top female amateur golfers, age 50 and above, to compete against each other for the state’s senior championship. The event is contested over 54 holes. Beginning in 2019, the event will be administered by the NCGA and SCGA in partnership with the CWAC Committee. The event will be conducted in Southern California for the first time in 2020 and will rotate between NorCal and SoCal venues moving forward.
Runaway Win For the Three-Time Champion
Carlsbad resident Corey Weworski took control of this week’s annual California Senior Women’s Amateur Championship for her third title.
Just one week after earning her SCGA Women's Four-Ball title, Weworski opened with an even-par 72, followed by a similar score of 73. But, to top it off, she finished with a spotless 69 at Quail Lodge & GC for a three-day total of 2-under 214. Weworski entered the winners circle with a 14-shot cushion over San Francisco’s Sally Krueger's 228.
Krueger, who came from a tie for low amateur honors at the U.S. Senior Women’s Open, couldn’t catch up with Weworski always being a step ahead. Weworski's three-stroke lead turned into six and quickly 14 after her stunning final round 69.
In third place at 237 is San Francisco resident Patricia Cornett.
The winner in both 2016 and 2017, Weworski's victory brings her into a group of five other players–Lynne Cowan, Sandy Woodruff, Barbara Stephan, Millie Stanley and Marianne Towersey (record 7-time champ) –who have won the event at least three times.
The 2019 championship marks the first event being held by the California Golf Association (CGA). Among the changes to the championship is a new format. The event is now a three-day, 54-hole Championship; Low 30 ties will make the cut after the second round.
In an agreement finalized last December, the CGA, which consists of the SCGA and the Northern California Golf Association, added the annual California Women’s Amateur Championship and California Senior Women’s Amateur Championship.
