January 2017 has already kicked off with a BANG for the women’s team. A sign of things to come?
In mid-January, Ivon Reijers made 6 birdies in the final round and playoff to win the Copa de Andalucía Femenina at the Atalaya Golf & Country Club in Málaga, Spain. Her final round 69 was the best of the day and got her into the playoff with overnight leader Carmen Laguna Ortiz.
Reijers shot 69-77-69 to take home the title.
