LOWELL, Massachusetts – The sky opened up for the start of this year’s Mother Daughter Chapman/Member Junior Tournament but quickly cleared for what was an enjoyable day for all. Mount Pleasant Golf Club played host to this year’s tournament, and the course conditions did not disappoint as many of the teams carded birdies throughout the round.
The overall tournament champions are no strangers to this event as the family is part of the historical archives having won the event in the past. Tracy Welch and daughter Amanda Adams (Winchester Country Club) fired a 1-over 73 pacing the rest of the field by five strokes. Finishing runner-up overall was Tracy Welch and her other daughter, Victoria Adams, who finished 4-over.
In the Chapman format, both players hit their tee shot then hit their partner’s ball. On the third shot, they selected a ball and alternated hitting until the ball was holed.
Made up of daughters aged 19 and over, the competition was close as one stroke separated the first and second place teams for low gross. With three birdies, the Mother Daughter team of Christine Casagrande & Anna Casagrande of Northampton Country Club finished up with a 7-over 78.
“It’s fun to come out here and spend a day with my daughter,” Christine Casagrande said. “We don’t get a lot of opportunities to play together so it was a fun day especially with a win.”
Mount Pleasant members, Celeste Tremblay and Brooke Waza had a memorable round with a low net score of 9-under 63. The highlight of their round was a net eagle on the 6th hole.
Made up of daughters or juniors aged 14-18, the low gross score of 1-over 73 came from the team of Tracy Welch and Amanda Adams (Winchester Country Club). The pair got off to a great start, firing a birdie on the first hole and cruising through the round with an additional birdie on the back nine as well.
Tracy Welch won the Mother Daughter in 1998 & 1999 with her mother Jane who was there to celebrate with them at the end of the round.
Welch’s other daughter, Victoria Adams (Winchester CC), was able to secure the low net in the division with a score of 6-under 66. Her round was highlighted by a net eagle on the 4th hole.
