10th Annual NCGA Women’s and Senior Women’s Championship Del Monte and Spyglass Hill | June 9-10


Fresh off an All-America cam- paign her senior year at Cal State Monterey Bay, Audra Kepler showed her best golf might be still to come. The caddie at Pebble Beach


Resorts grabbed a share of the lead with a first-round 2-under 70 at Del Monte before running away with the NCGA Women’s Amateur by clos- ing with a 1-under 72 at Spyglass. Kepler was the only player in the


field to break par at Spyglass, propel- ling her to a four-stroke win over Sagee Palavivatana, who closed with an impressive 73 of her own. “Probably the lowest I’ve shot at


Spyglass is 76 or 77,” Kepler said. “I’ve grown a lot as a golfer in the last six months. I think it just shows that I have a huge future ahead of me, and I’m excited for what it holds.” After attempting to qualify for


the U.S. Women’s Open, Kepler plans to turn professional. “I’ll be doing the Sun Coast Tour,


turning pro, and seeing where that leads,” Kepler said. The NCGA Senior Women’s


Amateur was settled in dramatic fashion, with Lynne Cowan holing a 12-footer for birdie on No. 18 at Spyglass to force a playoff with Sandy Woodruff, before winning on the first hole of sudden death. Cowan shot 71-77, while


Woodruff shot 74-74. Woodruff had a stellar 1-under 35 on the front nine that included back-to-back 2s—a hole-out for eagle on No. 4, and a birdie on No. 5. Patricia Cornett finished one stroke out of the playoff after shooting 71-78. “It was a rollercoaster round that


any of the three of us could have won,” Cowan said. In May, Cowan captured the


California Senior Women’s Amateur at Poppy Hills, becoming the first player to win both the Women’s Am and the Women’s Senior Am.


Rick Reinsberg


33rd Annual NCGA Master Division Championship


Spyglass Hill and Del Monte | June 9-10


It’s always nice to go out


on top. Rick Reinsberg made the most


of a rare NCGA Championship appearance, sticking a 108-yard sand wedge on the 18th hole at Del Monte and sinking the putt to win the 40-and-over tourna- ment by one stroke over reigning SCGA Player of the Year Dan Sullivan.


Reinsberg played four NCGA


events this season, but called it a year at the Masters. Next up? Coaching his kid’s soccer team. “This feels great, especially


since I’m not playing that much anymore,” said Reinsberg, who finished the event with a two- day total of 6-under 138. “I’m just busy with life in general, but it’s a good thing. This win makes it sweeter, knowing that’s it for this year.”


Reinsberg posted a 5-under Audra Kepler Lynne Cowan


67 at Spyglass Hill in the first round to jump out to a three- shot lead. The win was Reins- berg’s first NCGA title since the 2009 Stroke Play Amateur Championship.
