All players dressed in patriotic red, white and blue colored outfits.
Marilyn Kenny took first place when she placed her flag on the No. 18 green. Theresa Metcalf was a close second with her flag planted on her approach shot to No. 18 green. Shelle Pentes won third with her flag on the fairway of No. 18. YangJa Koh took the prize for low putts. There were no chip-ins so the money cup will carry over for another week.
