Grossart Cashes in With $2030 Check as Field of 51 Players Create 1-Day Purse of $8680


Donald Grossart turned in some fine art on Saturday afternoon at Bridlewood GC. The 2.6 handicap fired a gross score of 70 to race past the field with a 2.7 stroke victory. To put that in perspective, it was the largest margin between places as less than a stroke separated each posititon from 2nd thru 43rd place. His handicap could have been 0 and he still would have won the event. Donald finally broke free from his slump as his lowest score of his previous 7 rounds on the tour was a 77. The FairWay Tour had record attendance for the month of February with 126 rounds recorded in three events. The two events in Texas were the largest back to back events in one region since the tour began in late 2000. We would like to thank all participants for their support...please continue to spread the good word to all of your golfing buddies (don't forget to collect your $50 credit when you sign up a new member) as we continue to grow and provide QUALITY events every weekend! The top 5 finishers received points for performance as will be the case with every event regardless of field size and, ironically, were the only players in the field of 51 players to break net par. The USGA says a player should be able to break his hcp 20% of the time, or once every 5 rounds and better his hcp by 3 strokes 5% of the time or once every 20 rds. With 9% of the field able to shoot lower than their handicap and 1% of the field beating it by more than 3 shots, this event fell well above the standard set by the USGA. The cash is starting to add up quickly in the points race, which will pay cash bonuses to top 10 at the end of the season. Points will double for the 2-Day Major at Tangle Ridge March 12-13. We hope to see you there because one thing is certain...IF YOU DON'T TEE IT UP YOU CAN'T WIN! Ask Donald Grossart.
