Welcome to the 2011 U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Championship at Bayville Golf Club in Virginia Beach, Va. We wish we could welcome you to a sunny Bayville, but Mother Nature is making her presence known today. The players are battling their way through heavy rains and strong winds of up to 20 miles per hour. The USGA staff and volunteers and Bayville staff are certainly to be commended for keeping this championship moving and on time.
Christina Lance and Hunki Yun will be here all week, bringing you all the information you need to know about these 132 championship players. This is truly a celebration, marking the 25th anniversary of the Women's Mid-Amateur. The first championship was conducted in 1987, and the inaugural Women's Mid-Amateur Committee chairman, Dena Nowotny, made a special appearance at last night's Players' Dinner. It was a night of honoring all the past champions in the room, and there was much applause to be had.
