Congratulations to Noriko Inoue from Tokyo, Japan who landed a hole-in-one on #15! After exiting the course, Noriko was presented with $500 cash from Tournament Co-Chair, Susan Harris.
Beginning on Saturday, the first player to make a hole-in-one on #15 will be awarded a brand new car. If the car is not awarded during the Saturday round, the hole-in-one contest will continue through the end of play on Sunday. In addition, $500 cash will be awarded to any player who makes a hole-in-one on all other Par-3’s (#3, #7 & #12).
Eagles for Charity
As in past years, the tournament committee will award $100 to any player who eagles at any time during the tournament. In addition to awarding $100 to the player, the tournament committee will also donate $100 to a local charity. The organization that has been selected as this year’s recipient of the “Eagles for Charity” proceeds is the OSF St. Francis Rehabilitation & Wellness Center.
Lopez shot an impressive 4-under par 68 putting her in the lead at the end of the first round. Lopez finishes only one stroke in front of Shannon Fish, Katie Kempter, Sadena Parks & Molly Aronsson who ended the day in a four-way tie for 2nd.
