Perhaps the Taber Golf Club should be looking to re-name its Ladies club championship trophy.
Cathy Fisher has won the coveted championship 14 out of the last 15 years, where the stroke differential between her nearest competitor has made it a personal battle where she wants to challenge herself.
“The first day I was very happy with my round. I have those personal goals where I hope to be in the 70s both days,” said Fisher of her championship rounds on the Aug. 8 weekend at the Taber golf club. “But I failed to do that on Day 2 with a couple of triples (bogeys). I put one in the water on No. 11 and on No. 8, I got in the sand and it just wasn’t good.”
Nevertheless, Fisher was able to show her consistent hand on the course with rounds of 76 and 83. Fisher’s best ever round at the Taber Golf Club has been a 71.
“I think it’s just been that overall consistency,” said Fisher of her dominance on the Taber Ladies Club Championship. “It’s posting solid numbers on Every hole where one doesn’t get away from me, playing against the golf course. “I’ve been able to play around 70 rounds this year.”
Fisher had a commanding 13-stroke lead after the first round, making for an anti-climactic second round, in which she increased her lead even further to 16 strokes for the ladies championship.
The senior ladies club championship title went to Rose Gerlock.
