From the Iowa Western Reivers Website
Freshman Katie Graham was recently selected to represent her home country of Scotland at the 'The Spirit International Golf Championship' in Whispering Pines Golf Club, Texas. The tournament brings together a 4-person team consisting of 2 men and 2 women from countries from around the world and will take place Nov. 1st thru Nov. 7th.
The Spirit International Golf Championship remains the premier showcase for the world's top amateurs. It was formed in 1999, by Houston philanthropist Corbin (Corby) J. Robertson, Jr. . With a passionate vision Corby turned the SGA into reality by establishing a unique charitable organization that benefits health-related causes while promoting the global goodwill of amateur golf.
The Spirit alumni have gone on to win over 650 professional titles, 25 major championships and 17 Olympic appearances. They include 16 PGA Tour winners, 25 European Tour winners, 23 LPGA Tour winners and 21 Ladies European Tour winners.
"I'm honoured to be able to represent my home country of Scotland as well as Iowa Western and look forward to playing with my teammates," said Graham. "I'm really happy where my golf game is right now, and I'm excited to learn more about this event and the different contributions this organization provides."
Katie will team up with fellow Scottish golfers: Carmen Griffiths (University of Louisville), Eric McIntosh (Northwestern University) & John Paterson (Colorado University). This is a great honour for Katie and a great promotion of Iowa Western Community College and recognition of our golf program.

Susan Wood is the non playing captain of the Scottish team this week at the European Ladies Team Championship at Royal County Down in Northern Ireland.
After the first day Scotland lie in second place behind the Czech Republic.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each team is made up of six players. Over Day’s 1 & 2 all players complete two individual stroke play rounds. The team’s five best scores out of six from each day count towards their stroke play qualifying totals.
Based on finishing position in the stroke play qualifying, the top eight teams from each championship qualify for the medal-contention Flight A bracket.
The format for the three remaining competition days is match play. Nations go head-to-head, with two foursomes matches in the morning and five singles matches in the afternoon.
This year because of COVID the competition is taking place at 5 different venues. 19 of the 30 teams are competing at Royal County Down.
The Scottish Team: Hannah Darling, Louise Duncan, Chloe Goadby, Hazel McGarvie, Lorna McClymont and Shannon McWilliam.
