WPBA San Diego Classic / Alpine, CA
Gerda Hofstatter went all the way through the 64-player field at the WPBA San Diego Classic unscathed to win the title over Shu-Han Chang of Chinese Taipei. This event was hosted by the Viejas Casino in Alpine, CA, March 10-14.
Hofstatter’s path to the finals included wins over Lisa Davids, Angelina Paglia, and Kyoko Sone. Once in the final 16, she bested Monica Webb and advanced to the quarterfinals, where she eliminated the tour’s number-one player, Ga Young Kim. In the semifinal match Hofstatter ousted Karen Corr, and then “G-Force” claimed the title over Chang in the finals.
After a first-round victory over Laura Smith, Chang was sent to the one-loss side by Corr. From there she fought back to the finals with wins over Jasmin Ouschan, Jeanette Lee, and Xiaoting Pan in the semifinals.Results:
