The Moose Jaw golfer won her sixth senior women’s golf championship over the weekend in Kenosee.
“I didn’t play well on the back end and the whole 18 on Sunday. I just lost my swing somehow and everyone else played worse than I did,” said Boyle. “I am not proud of my score that I won with, but I am proud of winning the provincials.”
Boyle finished with a score of +36 for the three-day event, two strokes ahead Jo-Anne Schiller of Lloydminster, Alta.
“I love competing and the girls around me all the time at the golf course are awesome,” said Boyle. “It is great to see them every year and they come from all over. It is a good get-together for all of us too.”
Kenosee had been hit with heavy rains last week, but the golf course was ready for the tournament and the sun was out and hot this weekend for the golfers.
“They worked hours upon hours to get that course ready for us by Friday. Wednesday it was wet, but they had been pumping. They also have a sand base there. The golf course was in absolute great condition,” said Boyle. “The greens were running awesome. It was a great place to golf in the summer.”
There were 16 competitors in the field from across the province as well as one from Florida.
Boyle hadn’t golfed at the Kenosee course in about six years, but got some assistance, which helped her throughout the tournament.
“I had one of the members take me out on Wednesday and Thursday for practice rounds. It was really good and is a member of the Kenosee Golf Club,” said Boyle. “He took me out and showed me what to do and what not to do. That definitely helped.”
Boyle’s home course is the Harbor Golf Course and Resort in Elbow.
