Executive Women's Golf Association chapter starts five Tampa Bay area leagues

Think of it as ladies' night.

When female golfers get off work, they will have more leagues they can play in — a quick way to get in nine holes before the sun goes down.

The Tampa Bay Chapter of the Executive Women's Golf Association will start five After Work 9 Hole leagues at local courses offering competitive play and a chance to meet new people.

Westchase Golf Club and Bloomingdale Golf Club, both in Tampa, will have a Monday league, Crescent Oaks Country Club in Tarpon Springs will have a Tuesday league, and TPC of Tampa Bay Golf Course in Lutz and Belleview Biltmore in Clearwater will have a Thursday league.

"We're real big on making sure that women enjoy themselves," Genevieve Schroeder, 2009 EWGA league chairwoman, said. "We want players who know the etiquette of the game. Any level of play is welcome, but we don't want play being held up, that way every woman can enjoy themselves."

Schroeder, who will play in the league at TPC, said all ages are welcome.

The leagues will start sometime after March 8, that is, after daylight saving time since the leagues play in the evenings.

The association still has to have an organizational meeting to discuss a few more of the basics of the chapter, but Schroeder says that each league will determine how long its session will last. Though Schroeder hopes that the leagues will have three eight-week long sessions, she realizes that each course and league will "develop its own personality" determined "on the golfers who show up at each course."

Schroeder adds that each league will also track scores weekly, posting the net scores of each golfer.

"It's a good, fun, competitive time where women can go out with other women to meet who don't know each other, but share the same interest," Schroeder said. "It's perfect for any type of woman golfer."

    MINNEAPOLIS — RHP Erasmo Ramirez was on the mound to finish Sunday's 15-inning marathon win over the Twins and will start tonight's game against the Rangers.

    The Rays’ Erasmo Ramirez throws 12 pitches in the 15th inning against the Twins to earn the save then says after the game that he’s ready to make his scheduled start against the Rangers: “My arm feels good.”

    The Heater

    MINNEAPOLIS — Before the Rays eventually won Sunday's 6½-hour, 15-inning marathon against the Twins 8-6, they did plenty to lose it. And we need to get that out of the way first.

    The Rays’ Evan Longoria enjoys a laugh after scoring, barely, to tie it in the ninth on Steven Souza Jr.’s two-out single.
  3. Tom Jones' Two Cents: ABC's Indy 500 coverage is stellar again

    TV and Radio

    Times columnist Tom Jones looks back at the best and worst from a weekend of televised sports.

    Best coverage

    Takuma Sato left, celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500 as Helio Castroneves is a little late passing him. ABC’s coverage of the race is stellar throughout, with plenty of extras but no fake drama.

    Auto racing

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.
  5. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Sunday's Rays-Twins game

    The Rays won because they got two innings of good relief from each of the two pitchers who contributed to them losing Saturday's game, Danny Farquhar (who again struck out Miguel Sano) and Tommy Hunter, who both posted zeroes.
