A Young Golfer To Watch

The metropolitan area is swimming with good--and possibly great--young players, but one who hasn't received the recognition she deserves is Ellen Oswald, winner of the 2012 NYS Women's Amateur. Oswald, who plays out of Westchester Country Club, graduated from St. John's last year where she played on the women's golf team and was a four-time Academic All-American.

Oswald won the NYS Women's Amateur at Seneca Falls Country Club by five strokes over Sara Eichelberger of Rochester. It was Oswald's first time in the statewide event, but the win capped a strong season she finished as runner-up Player of the Year for the Women's Metropolitan Golf Association and was named Women's Amateur Player of the Year by the Westchester Golf Association. She finished second in the WMGA Stroke Play Championship the week after her NYS win and had also placed second in the WMGA/MGA Met Amateur Championship in June.

Word has it that Oswald has put her degree in finance to one side for the time being and is working on her game in Florida this winter with Mike Diffley, head pro of Pelham CC and St. John's alum. We'll be keeping an eye on her when she starts competing again this in the met area this spring.

Among many other books, Dave Donelson is the author of Weird Golf: 18 tales of fantastic, horrific, scientifically impossible, and morally reprehensible golf
