The dance card of competitors slated to compete at next month's Senior PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club grew once again this week, with the addition of Fred Couples, a wildly popular player on tour who continues to perform at a high level on the regular tour.

The turf on the West Ladue Campus used to be the Wildcats home base.
For Westminster soccer, the game against Ladue Friday was like a homecoming. Only the homecoming was on the road. Westminster returned to play Ladue at the new West Campus facility. Up until a year ago, that was the home to Westminster Christian Academy. The Wildcats used the return occasion to put a 2-0 shutout on the high-flying Rams. A scoreless first half, played in cold, blustery bone-chilling 40 degrees turned into a second-half scoring bonanza for Westminster. Courtney McGhee scored the go-ahead and game winning goal with an assist from Caroline Moore. Also in the second half, a header by Charisse Williams, off a corner kick from Moore was a thing of beauty. She stepped in on goal keeper Fran Shannon to score and pretty much put the…
