2017 U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur Postponed Due To Irma

A shame but perfectly understandable to (A) postpone and (B) try to stick with the host venue over relocating.

For Immediate Release:

USGA Postpones 31st U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur at Quail Creek Country Club in Naples, Fla.

FAR HILLS, N.J. (Sept. 12, 2017) – The USGA today announced that the 31st U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship, scheduled to be played Oct. 7-12 at Quail Creek Country Club in Naples, Fla., will be postponed due to the impact of Hurricane Irma.

“After assessing the storm’s impact on the course, we have determined with Quail Creek that the championship cannot be successfully conducted on the scheduled dates next month,” said U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship Director Rachel Sadowski. “Our thoughts are with our good friends at Quail Creek, and with everyone in the Southeast affected by the storm.”

The USGA will continue to work closely with Quail Creek to determine when the championship will be played, and more details will be announced at a later date.

For more information about the championship, visit www.usga.org/womensmidam.

Like I said before, the TV coverage was not near as good as the Am at Riviera. Looked like Fox did this one on the cheap. For once, not enough equipment, i.e.. replay machines or cameras to get all the actual shots in. Would like to have seen more of the course, opening holes, club house etc. Every golf telecast should open with an overview of the course being played and if possible, shots of interesting parts of the club house and surrounding area. Wish I was a TV sports producer.
