Colorado Open Points Race
In partnership with the Colorado Women’s Open, the top points earner on the 2021 WAPT Player of the Year standings through the first three (3) WAPT events will receive an exemption into the CoBank Colorado Women’s Open June 2-4, 2021. Binny Lee (Frisco, TX) leads the points race with 610 points heading into the final event of the series. A win this week for Alison Muirhead (Scotland) or Megan Osland (Kelowna, BC) would give them the top spot in the points race as they are the only ones competing within reach of Lee.
NOTES ON THE LIST OF COMPETITORS:
This week’s field is made up of 62 players from 14 countries.
The breakdown of the 62 players per country in the field this week: United States (44), South Korea (3), Canada (2), Colombia (2), Mexico (2), Chile (1), Germany (1), England (1), France (1), Scotland (1), Indonesia (1), Malaysia (1), Sweden (1), Thailand (1)
With past performances of a top-10 and a T-12 through the first two events, Alison Muirhead will look to stay hot this week with a smaller field. Also, looking to build on her recent success is Megan Osland who finished T-6 in Wichita Falls before the week break. New to the field this week is local Summar Roachell (Conway, AR) making her first start of the season. Roachell has seen success on tour in her home state claiming a top-5 last season at the Central Arkansas Open.
Action gets underway at 8:00 A.M. CT all three tournament days with play starting off No. 1 tee. The final round will be a single tee start with leaders going off last at 11:30 A.M. CST. A trophy presentation by the clubhouse is set to follow the final round of play. Attendance is free to the public.
