    SUMMARY OF CHANGES TO THE RULES OF GOLF

     

    Click the link below to view an "info-graphic" for an easy-to-understand summary of the four major changes to the 2016 USGA Rules of Golf that will be implemented on January 1:



    OAKMONT HOSTS JUNIOR CLINIC

    The Carol Semple Thompson Junior Girls Golf Clinic opened the season of Junior events at Oakmont Country Club on May 4th. Oakmont Country Club was as beautiful as ever as the membership and staff prepare to host the U.S. Open in June.

    Despite some unwelcome rain, it didn't diminish the smiles on the faces of the 81 juniors golfers ranging in age from 8-18.  Instruction was provided by host and Hall-of-Famer Carol Semple Thompson, former Oakmont club professional Bob Ford, current Oakmont head pro Devin Gee, Eric Johnson, Matt Denesha, Dieter Wiedmeyer, Matt Holmes, Missie Berteotti, Sue McMurdy, Mitch Fernandez, and Katie Miller. This event was co-sponsored by the WGAWP and the Pennsylvania State Women's Golf Association. Both organizations supplied volunteers to help our young golfers around the stations. A big thank you to Anne Vanzant, Marsha Jessup, Danielle Proctor, Kristin Obush, & Wanda McGarry (PSWGA).  Also on hand to assist were Western president Corinne Lacich, Junior Chairman Susie Perrin, Lisa Popovich, Terry Kenneweg, Kathy Campbell, Dawne Blazevich, Vickie McDevitt, Mary Beth Morrissey, Sally Sheerer and Joan Gurrentz.

    The girls did a rotation through three stations of putting, full swing, and a special U.S. Open station run by Charlie Howe from the USGA. Each had a photo opportunity with Carol Semple Thompson and the U.S. Open trophy. After the stations everyone went into the ballroom for a delicious buffet, including one of their favorites: ice cream treats. Not only did the girls leave with high quality golf instruction, they each received a goody bag from Oakmont containing a drawstring backpack with golf balls, socks and a fabulous U.S. Open hat and ball marker to remember the day. The junior golf program now is moving into our tournament schedule. Please visit our junior tab and refer any young golfer that you know about our program of events.  Girls do not have to be members of Western clubs.

    The Junior/Member Better Ball, to be played on July 11th at Westmoreland Country Club, is a great way to promote golf with a young girl. Find a junior and come out and play. If you don't have anyone but would like to play, let us know and we will find you a junior playing partner.

    Many thanks to the Western members who generously donate and support our Junior tournaments, clinic and scholarships!

    CHARLENE YOURICK GETS THIRD ACE
