Many golfers will tell you that the best experiences they have had is when they play the game as part of a team. The pressure of “not wanting to let the team down” is immense, and bonds formed between teammates are everlasting.
Such is the case for the annual Nevada State Women’s Partners tournament, which features two-player teams competing against other teams in both net and championship divisions. In 2019, Norhtern Nevada’s Christy Atencio and Cheryl Burke won the championship division and Southern Nevada’s Kathy Johnson and Joyce Jaramillo won the net division.
Burke captured the spirit needed to win the tournament in 2019 and in general.
“We really ham and egged it well,” Burke said. “We kind of took turns playing well. We didn’t have any bogeys on the card and that’s always a good thing. Sometimes par is your best friend on the golf course. You just have to bear down and play as well as you can and it turns out we just both played steady golf.”
