2006 RED DEVIL INVITATIONAL CHAMPION SCORES ACE & PLACES 8th at LPGA VOLVIK CHAMPIONSHIP


LPGA Volvik Championship May 28, 2017 at Travis Pointe Country Club Ann Arbor Michigan: Shanshan Feng of China wins

A hole-in-one on the par 3 third hole ignited her five-under front nine  as Jersey girl Marina Alex shot 5-under par 67 today to finish in eighth place.

Alex cooled off on the back nine with bogeys on two par 4's (10th & 15th holes.)

 The Vanderbilt University alum reignited with back-to-back birdies on the par 3 seventeenth and par 5 eighteenth holes.

The 26-year old  has shown she has the ability to go low.

At the 2014 U.S. Women's Open, she birdied three of the last six holes to card a 4-under 66 and share the first round lead with Karrie Webb.

For those of you who DO NOT FOLLOW NJ girls golf: here is the "skinny" on the Red Devil Invitational:
  • The Red Devil Girls Golf 18-hole High School Girls Golf Invitational and Food Drive

    The first 18-hole high school girls golf tournament in New Jersey. It was created in the spirit of providing high school age female golfers the same competitive playing opportunities as their high school age male counterparts. 
    At its inception in April, 2004 it was the first 18-hole invitational tournament female athletes played in the state of New Jersey. 
    A food drive which benefits the local Flemington, NJ food pantry is offered as well. All schools are invited and encouraged to participate int he food drive if they are able to do so.  
    Kudos to the membership and management of Copper Hill Country Club for stepping up to the plate and hitting it out of the park for Jersey girl golfers for 14 years!!!

GO, MARINA, GO!!!!
