Eaton & Zmistowski Combine to Win Season Opener

MESA, Ariz. – Kim Eaton and Lynn Zmistowski combined to card an Even score at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa to claim the Women’s Season Opener title.  The event, played in a four-ball stroke play format, saw the runner up pairs of Christy Cervetti and Megan Reeves and Molly Steffes and Tori Totlis finish two strokes behind the winning pair of Eaton and Zmistowski. The competitors were faced with a not-so-typical Arizona winter day as cloud cover rolled in alongside persistent high winds which made for an added challenge on the Longbow Golf course.

Eaton opened the front nine decently but it wasn’t until a birdie on the seventh hole where she eventually found her rhythm. Zmistowski complemented Eaton’s birdie with a birdie of her own on the eighth hole followed by a par to finish the front nine under par. On the back nine, Eaton showed her POTY worthy consistency as she made par for each hole, despite bogeys on 15 and 16, the former of which Zmistowski was able to save par for.

Power Pair Lindquist and McCarthy take 2021 Arizona Four-Ball title

LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz – John Lindquist and Patrick McCarthy combined to shoot an overall 17-under on the Wigwam Golf Club Gold course the weekend of September 11th to claim the 2021 Arizona Four Ball title. They started the competition by shooting a 7-under which left them trailing JGAA talents Adam Miller and Charlie Palmer by one stroke on the day.

McCarthy and Lindquist came out firing with a renewed spirit on Sunday though to shoot a 10-under, besting the rest of the field by four strokes.

“We just fed really well off each other. When one of us had a bad hole the other covered the others back,” said Lindquist.

“We kind of picked spots we wanted to go at because we knew there were some tough pin locations,” added McCarthy, “Today we just got off to a lot better of a start.”

This is Patrick McCarthy’s first AGA Championship win and second for John Lindquist who captured the 2020 Arizona Stroke Play Championship held at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Course in Maricopa, AZ back in April.

In the Senior Divison, Jeff New & Lee Decof shot 9-under on the final day, after going bogey-free on the first day, to finish 14-under and win by four shots over the rest of the field.
