Rogers wins at Chickasaw Pointe; FairWay Tour closes in on $2 million mark


Mark Rogers finally found his game at Chickasaw Pointe Saturday. He birdied holes 14, 15 and 16 for a back nine 34 to take home first place money on the last day of 100 degree plus temperatures...which should mark the end of the brutal Summer of 2011. The remainder of the year should be very interesting with the calendar changing to hopefully an extended fall season of beautiful golf weather. The FairWay Tour schedule extends into December with the Red River Cup Championship to be played on the RED RIVER at Chickasaw Pointe Golf Club Dec 3-4. The Tour is closing fast on the $2 million mark in payouts with a total of $1,962,244 paid to ONE FLIGHT OF GOLFERS WITH A HANDICAP OF 12 OR LESS SINCE 2001. We have have the most accurate handicap system and are the longest active tour of its kind with the most generous pay matrix. This year we have already paid $240,735 to our members with lots of serious golf still to be played. On top of that, there is now $6,525 in the BONUS POOL to be paid to the top 10 points winners at the end of the year. With your continued support, we hope to reach our goal of giving $10,000 plus in bonus cash to the top 10 points winners. I will be writing these checks at the conclusion of the Red River Cup Championship on Dec. 4th. We hope to see you this weekend at Coyote Ridge GC in Carrollton, TX on Saturday, September 10th at noon or Forest Ridge GC in Broken Arrow, OK Sunday, September 11th at noon...these golf courses are in immaculate condition and provide a stiff test as +2 won earlier this year at Coyote Ridge and -1.2 won our last event at Forest Ridge in 2010. Traditionally, with the fall season comes higher scores as the combination of summer conditions and lowerd handicaps make for higher scores with the change in weather. We hope to see you there because "If you don't tee it up you can't win!"
