Glasson wins at Emerald Falls with 72.7


Max Glasson fired a gross score of 77 under extreme conditions Saturday at Emerald Falls Golf Club in Broken Arrow, OK. Glasson, a Stillwater native and son of former PGA Tour player and current Senior PGA Tour star Bill Glasson, was able to play close to his 4.3 handicap under very difficult conditions. As always, it was close at the top. The winning score of 72.7 was followed by 73.5 and 74.2. The 8 player field was the smallest of the year and had to endure 40 mph winds and temps in the low 50's much of the afternoon. Even so, the tour paid 3 spots and the winner received $600 and 65 Red River bonus points...not bad for an afternoon of golf! Please note the new "share this" links on ANY page of the website.

We hope this makes it easier for all to tell others about the fast growing tour. Our next event will be a first of its kind 2-Day Mini Major at Boiling Springs GC in Woodward, OK November 12-13. The 36-hole event will pay $2000 to the winner with 20 players and $3000 to the winner with 30 players and a minimum one in four players will receive a check! The online entry fee of $315 includes green fees for 36 holes. The short, hilly and tight course with superb undulating bent grass greens is very challenging and fun to play. Points will be double for the Red River Cup, which now has over $9000 in it to be paid to the top 10 points winners at the end of the year. If you are close to the top of this list it could pay off big time to enter this event or any of the remaining events on the 2011 calendar. We hope to see you there because "If you don't tee it up you can't win!"
