Final Four Ladies Remain at WPBA Masters
WPBA Masters / Mount Pleasant, MI
The WPBA Masters tournament has wound down to its final four players and will crown a winner to this inaugural event Sunday. The event, the tour’s first this year, is hosted by the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mount Pleasant, MI.
Coming through the winners’ side of the chart were Kelly Fisher and Karen Corr. Fisher had two tough opponents ahead of her Saturday. In her first match she went up against fellow countrywoman Allison Fisher but handled her easily 9-3. Then she matched up with Monica Webb, who had just sent Jasmin Ouschan to the one-loss side with a stunning 9-1 victory. Unfazed, Fisher drilled Webb 9-5 to advance to the semifinals.
In Corr’s first match of the day, she went against Tamara Rademakers and notched a confident 9-4 victory. However, in her second match she was faced with the tour’s top player, Ga Young Kim, who had just squeaked past Ewa Laurance 9-7. In a hill-hill nail-biter, Corr edged past Kim to remain unscathed, while Kim went to the west side.
It was a long day for some on the left side of the chart, and none who started out there Saturday survived until Sunday. Sarah Rousey eked out a 9-8 win over Helena Thornfeldt but then fell to Laurance 9-7. Laurance then was dismissed by Rademakers 9-7 before Rademakers was eliminated by a convincing 9-2 victory by Webb to advance to the semifinals.
