Houston were my most memorable experiences,” Glennon said. “The beautiful Las
Campanas Golf Club in Santa Fe was stunning and it was the final time a State Team
Championship was to be held there. The Mid-Am at historic Champions Golf Club in
Houston was also a great memory. I definitely exceeded my expectations with my play
there and it has given me great confidence moving forward to 2018.”
In addition, she was the champion of the MGA Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship, top
six in the Florida State Golf Association Senior Championship, St. Louis Women’s District 3

“I am very pleased with my accomplishments this season,” Glennon said. “I played very well
and focused on consistency. It means a lot to be Player of the Year. I value the MGA and their
efforts to continue to allow Women the opportunities to compete in State level competitions.
There are some great players in Missouri and I am honored to compete against them and play
alongside of them.”
