They Jump In The Lake For Fun?

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Dinah Shore Course at Mission Hills Country Club-yes, the famous course where LPGA winners of the tournament make the “Champions Leap” aka jump into the lake after they have won. Why do they do this? -it’s tradition since 1996. Amy Alcott was the first golfer to dive into the lake after winning-the final green is surrounded by water-so why not? Yani Tseng was last years winner and she made a great leap into the lake after her win. Who will it be this year? Wait until March 28 to find out. Fantastic course to visit, beautiful backdrops of the mountains and of course for this northwesterner it was great to go somewhere sunny. If you ever have the chance I would highly recommend playing a game at this course.
