Monday, December 18, 2017
The Missouri Golf Association is excited to announce this year’s Senior Women’s Player of the Year. The Player of the Year award is presented to an outstanding senior female golfer who has excelled on the course throughout the season. This year’s recipient is Kathy Glennon of St. Albans, Missouri. Glennon is a member of Country Club of St. Albans and this is her second year in a row earning the prestigious award.
This season, Glennon was a member of the MGA Fore State Team and the USGA Women’s State team. She finished in the top 35 at the USGA Mid-Amateur Stroke Play, match play qualifier.
“I would say the USGA State Team Championship in Santa Fe and the USGA Mid-Am in Houston were my most memorable experiences,” Glennon said. “The beautiful Las Campanas Golf Club in Santa Fe was stunning and it was the final time a State Team Championship was to be held there. The Mid-Am at historic Champions Golf Club in Houston was also a great memory. I definitely exceeded my expectations with my play there and it has given me great confidence moving forward to 2018.”
In addition, she was the champion of the MGA Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship, top six in the Florida State Golf Association Senior Championship, St. Louis Women’s District 3 Day Medal Champion, St. Louis Women’s District Senior Champion, St. Louis Women’s District Tournament of a Lifetime Champion, St. Louis Women’s District Invitational Champion, top four in the Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association Women’s Championship and the Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association Player of the Year.
“I am very pleased with my accomplishments this season,” Glennon said. “I played very well and focused on consistency. It means a lot to be Player of the Year. I value the MGA and their efforts to continue to allow Women the opportunities to compete in State level competitions. There are some great players in Missouri and I am honored to compete against them and play alongside of them.”
“I would like to thank the MGA for this wonderful recognition. I believe the MGA wants to do everything it can to promote competitive women golf in the state of Missouri, and I am truly proud to be the Senior Player of the Year.”
Congratulations, Kathy and thank you for your commitment and dedication to the game!
