Samantha Griffith, who will be playing golf as a freshman at David Libscomb this fall, shot a 73 to lead all qualifiers in the 2014 Chattanooga Women’s City Golf Tournament. 

“I really made some good long putts today," she said. 

Samantha made 15-foot downhill putts on #1 for par and #2 for birdie to get her round off to a good start.  Her other birdies came at #6 with a short putt and #12 when she chipped in from behind the bunker. 

She kept the round in play with a little luck on #16 when she hit her third shot out of the left hand bunker a little far but it managed to roll back down to within 15 feet of the hole and she dropped the putt to salvage par. 

It took 86 to qualify for the Championship Flight. 

Quarterfinal matches and the first round of the Seniors will be played Tuesday morning beginning at 8 a.m.

Equality Vs. Superiority

Many comparisons are being made about Neo-Nazis, White Supremacy and Black Lives Matter.  In order to compare, we assume these are equally comparable. The flaw comes here - Black Lives Matter strives to be equal, to be treated equally.  Neo-Nazis, The KKK, and White Supremacy groups believe they are the superior.  Make no mistake here, I grew up in an era of segregation. ...
