Oakville Cranston and Gal golf duo on a roll
Two girls from Oakville Golf Club, Katie Cranston and Nicole Gal, are good friends, but the individual nature of their sport means they often have to compete with each other.
So, it was a treat for the two of them to team up in what is called a “Four Ball” golf tournament. In Four Ball, teams of two take turns hitting, so that even though there are two, there is only one score on each hole and at the end of the round of golf. Working together, Katie and Nicole faced many more experienced teams in a qualifying tournament for the US Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Tournament to be held in Puerto Rico in April of next year. On September 30, with a score of 66, they finished second at Quail Ridge in Boynton Beach, Florida.
The two will be training with Team Canada this winter in British Columbia which will make Puerto Rico’s logistics an interesting challenge, but we can’t imagine that they will want to miss this chance to be on the same side again.
Katie and Nicole, Oakville is proud of you and follows your progress with interest!
