Gail Sykes Sets Course Record Off Men’s Tees

Gail Sykes, who was named Schenectady Gazette County Golfer of the Year five times in the 1960s, set a women’s course record at Ballston Spa Country Club in 1963 with a 73.  What made her effort even more impressive was that she did it off the men’s tees.  As a college golfer, Sykes was named to the very first All-America team.
