Mom-to-be sets new course record

It's probably a pretty safe bet that when Charleigh Meadows has her first child in the coming months the tyke will turn into one pretty good golfer. After all, Mom is no stranger to the sport.

It's probably a pretty safe bet that when Charleigh Meadows has her first child in the coming months the tyke will turn into one pretty good golfer.

After all, Mom is no stranger to the sport. The 23-year-old first teed off when she was seven, improved most every time she picked up the clubs while growing up and has won or placed well up in numerous local tournaments.

Now the 23-year-old Meadows, who is six months pregnant, has set the new women's record at the Dawson Creek Golf and Country Club. And the as-yet-unborn babe was there through all 18 holes Monday when she clipped one off the old record to establish a new mark of 75.

"I think it probably will be," laughed Meadows, when asked if her son or daughter will be a golfer.

"I think it likes golf. It seems to be helping me out."

With a baby on the way, she pointed out that her golf season will probably end in about a month after she plays in the annual Dawson Creek Athletic Association's Cash Scramble.

In the meantime, there's still lots of opportunities to get out on the links three or four times a week.

During her record-setting round four days ago, Meadows was steady on all her holes and birdied the third, fifth, 14th and 15th holes.

"I was pretty consistent. I had about four birdies which really helped me out," explained Meadows.

Near the end of her 18 holes, with the clubhouse in sight along with a record-setting round, she managed to stay calm, keep her composure and maintain her consistent play to establish a new mark for women golfers to shoot for at the DCGCC.

"In the past three years I can say that I have tied the course record about nine times and missed it every time because I lost my composure," explained Meadows.

"Over the past three years, I have worked a lot on my nerves so I have got some composure when it comes to the end now."
