FairWay Tour Providing Intense Competition With Tight Scoring At Each Event; 3-Way Tie At Top In Points Race


The FairWay Tour is providing intense competition as the last 2 events have been decided by less than a stroke and there is currently a 3-way tie for the lead in the Red River Cup Points Race. Jeremy Copeland edged out Michael Gatz at Tour 18-Rose Creek in Edmond OK with a net score of 67.9 and took home a total of $1350 with a gross score of 72. The 4.1 handicap recorded his lowest gross score in his last 22 events on the FairWay Tour dating back to July 11, 2009. Jeremy joined the tour as a 1 handicap in August 2003 and has recorded over 190 rounds, but only a handful were as good as this one. Nice job Jeremy. So far we have seen very tight scoring in each of our events. The scoring system used by the FairWay Tour calculates a player's index with the slope rating of the golf course to give a handicap to the nearest tenth. This method all but eliminates ties and with the field evened out by handicaps, a winner is identified as often as possible. Our next event will be Feb. 26th at Bridlewood GC in Flower Mound, TX with Major #1 just around the corner at Tangle Ridge GC in Grand Prairie, TX on March 12-13. We hope you can come out soon and enjoy weekend golf competition at its finest!
