Eagles at the Kingsmill Championship
The River Course in Williamsburg, Va., (Kingsmill Resort) gave us only 4 eagles in the season 2014. This was one of the lowest numbers in the first season of the Wounded Warrior Weekend. Last week, the number of eagles was higher than in the last 2 years on the LPGA Tour. Golfers made 3 eagles during Saturday and 18 on Sunday. The total number of eagles was 21. The highest number in the last two seasons on the LPGA.
Eagles on Sunday included Minjee Lee, the winner, par-5 15th hole, an eagle and par-4 11th by Kim Kaufman. Minjee Lee hit from 195 feet and completed the 6 under par. This weekend brought the number of 114 eagles and a money figure of $114.000. Maybe the next weekend will also be successful. It is Shop Rite LPGA a 54 hole event. During the last 2 rounds of the LPGA tournaments, the Wounded Warrior Weekend took place. The CME Group will donate $1.000 for each eagle that will be made on the Wounded Warrior Project. On the CME Group Tour Championship (season-ending) this amount will be increased on $5.000 for each eagle. The formal check will be presented at the Wounded Warrior Project.
During the last season, 2014, the total number of eagles was 283. They rose$283.000. There were no eagles made in the Naples, but the CME Group rounded that check to $300.000. That season also had a high number of double aces and aces. We can say that new and young golfers are showing their knowledge and make this sport even more interesting than it is.
