Dougherty and McCallick Win Women’s Partnership

PLANO, TX—Camm Dougherty and Leslie McCallick win the 2017 Women’s Partnership at The Clubs of Prestonwood – Hills Course on Tuesday with an overall score of 31.5.

The Partnership is a team event using a quota system for scoring. Players accumulate points by their score on each hole. A double bogey nets a player one point, a bogey two points, a par three points, a birdie five points, an eagle eight points and a hole in one accrues 10 points for the player. Quotas were determined based on each player’s course handicap and teams were flighted based on their combined handicap index.

Corpus Christi’s Dougherty and Horseshoe Bay’s McCallick made 13 points in the first round and 18.5 points in the second to win this event for the second time. The pair teamed up to win at Corpus Christi Country Club in 2012. McCallick and Dougherty combined to make nine birdies in the final round to meet and exceed their quotas.
