Played smart. Was consistent.

Pat Erickson was both as she won her third straight Women’s Club Championship at Island Country Club.

After what Erickson termed “a horrible front nine,” she was two strokes off the leaders after the first day.

The second, and final day, she teamed with Donna Glanzman. They teed off just ahead of the leaders, Anne Landis and Sherry England.

“I told myself there was nothing I could do about the first day, but I was sure going to concentrate on what I was doing the final round,” Erickson said. “I never asked about who was in the lead, I just played smart. I took what the shot gave me.”

The leaders faltered and Erickson won by three strokes. She now has won six championships.

Janice Farrell came through for second place, while Anne Landis and Glanzman tied for third. England ended up with the low net score, with handicap.

“She didn’t play her best golf, but she was consistent (on the final day) and didn’t make mistakes,” said head golf professional Michael DeJordy of Erickson’s come back.

“She is a true champion, one of the most consistent golfers I’ve seen in a long time.”

Laura Bodine, who hasn’t been a club member long, had a great tournament, topping Flight 1. She was followed by Marilou Casey, Brenda Banker, Louise Jean and Linda Girgenti who had low net.

Flight 2 was won by Sandy Allen, followed by Eleanor Lord, Mary Chira, Georgia Pavin and Dina Trebbe had low net.

Toddy Chase won Flight 3 where the tourney was tight. She topped Jackie Ritter by one stroke and Louann Voss by two. Fourth was Juanita Farrar, with Judy Stanojev earning low net.

In Flight 4 Carmen Llugany topped Karen St. Clair by three strokes, followed by Joan Koenig, and Bobbi Rogers, with low net going to Lenore Else.
