One of the joys of covering the Senior Women's Amateur is coming across all the friendly faces. It's not to say there aren't any friendly faces at other championships. But it's rather fun to be able to share stories with someone like the legendary Carol Semple Thompson, or come across someone like Marsha Butler, who I haven't seen in three years. It's not easy to keep track of every subject you write about. The best example of this is Mary Ann Hayward, who won the 2005 U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur as Mary Ann LaPointe.
On a separate note, past U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur champion Corey Weworski stopped by the course to watch friend Carolyn Creekmore play Sunday.
