Golf bonds mothers, daughters

BY KATIE PAXTON kpaxton@paducahsun.com

The Florence Paxton Memorial Ladies Golf Tournament tees off this week, and players expressed their excitement for the friendly competition between families and the community.

Sydney Trimble, a sophomore at Murray State University and member of their varsity golf team, said she has enjoyed being a part of this tournament for several years.

"I would say this is my fourth or fifth year (playing in the tournament)," said Trimble.

Trimble experiences some pressure as this year's defending champion, but after a severe allergic reaction and surgery for an injury this summer, she looks forward to getting back in the swing of things.

"It's nice to know that I accomplished so much last year," she said. "I always love playing in local tournaments and giving back to my community."

The tournament is also a way for Trimble to bond with her family, especially her mother Pam, who has played in the tournament for at least 10 years.

"It's so different (playing in the same tournament with Sydney) because usually I am the supporter, and I go watch her," she said. "I'm always anxious to hear how she did, but I have to concentrate on my game at the same time."

Friendly mother-daughter competition is not foreign to this tournament. Linda Walton of Paducah said she has loved playing alongside her daughters for the past few years.

"It's fun! (My daughters) try to beat me, but I hate to beat them!" said Walton. "I just enjoy the tournament, and I enjoy it more playing with them."

The Florence Paxton Memorial Ladies Golf Tournament, sponsored by The Paducah Sun, begins today at Paxton Park, followed by play at Silo's Country Club on Tuesday, and finishing on Wednesday at the Rolling Hills Country Club.â
