For the second consecutive season, the 2017 OMEGA Women’s Player of the Year is Joanna Coe, of Baltimore Country Club.
“It’s a great honor to win this award in the Middle Atlantic Section,” Coe said. “We have such great players and courses in this Section and it’s been a lot of fun playing at the local level.”
In just her second year in the business side of golf, Coe says balancing work and practice has been different from her usual routine.
“The work-play balance is definitely different,” Coe said. “My game turned on late in the year and April through July I wasn’t hitting the ball very well. In August, I was able to turn on my game and played much better at the end of the season.”
Not only did that strong play earn Coe Player of the Year honors, but she successfully qualified for the 2018 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Kemper Lakes Golf Club in Kildeer, IL. Coe also won the 2017 MAPGA Women’s Championship by 10 strokes and finished seventh at the National Car Rental Assistants Championship.
