Everyone can play in the Pin Winners Challenge!

When the Jinx Fensel Memorial Tournament was cancelled at Meadowbrook in June, the DDWGA Board decided to incorporate the tournament into the Pin Winners Challenge to be held on Saturday, September 22 at Troy Country Club.   

Just to refresh you on the Pin Winners Challenge: each golf course runs a Pin Day where the low gross and low net of the day are invited to play in the Pin Winners Event at the end of the season. It is at this tournament where an overall low net and overall low gross trophy is awarded. Nothing has changed from that standpoint.

Two years ago, in an attempt to grow the dwindling Pin Winners Event, we ADDED another component to the tournament-a FOUR-PERSON event: low gross/low net best ball.

ANYBODY CAN BRING A FOUR PERSON TEAM TO THIS EVENT. It will be run similar to the other DDWGA events with pro shop credit for winning teams REGARDLESS of the makeup of the team.

However, there is a special "Pin Winners Cup" awarded to the team whose members are all from the same home course and have one or both Pin Winners on it. This is just an added twist to establish a “club champion” of sorts from the DDWGA group of courses.

Each year, this Pin Winners Cup is named in honor of someone who has given back to the golfing community and who better than Jinx Fensel, a free spirit who played regularly at Community Golf Course and Sugar Valley Country Club. This year’s Waterford crystal award is extra special, too. It has been signed by the artist making it a one of a kind award in memory of a one of a kind lady!

So here's the bottom line for September 22:

If you are NOT a pin winner, your team can consist of whoever from wherever in the DDWGA and you are eligible for prize credit as a team.

If you ARE a Pin Winner and your team consists of three other ladies from your club, your team is eligible for prize credit AND the Pin Winners Cup

EVERYONE is in for the Jinx Fensel Low Net Individual trophy.

Pin winners are competing for the overall low gross and low net awards.
