Lupus is an autoimmune disease with an unknown cauase

Salimah Mussani took a one-stroke lead in the PGA of B.C. Women’s Championship on the pentultimate hole, played on the 8th hole of Surrey’s Hazlemere Golf and Country Club on Sept. 9. She birdied the par-four 251-yard hole to take the lead from her closest competitor, Ashley Zibrik of Shaughnessey Golf and Country Club.

But Mussani didn’t know she had the lead. Without a leaderboard, she was counting her own and Zibrik’s strokes in her head. After 35 holes, she thought they were tied with the final hole ahead of them.

“I changed my strategy a little bit on last two holes,” said Mussani, adding that the green was reachable from the tee box. On 8, she pulled out her driver to give her a chance at a birdie shot, which she made afer she dug out of the bunker.

“I thought we were all square,” she said. At that point, Mussani, a Canadian junior and women’s national champion, was playing for the win.
