Super Major #6 @ WinStar this weekend; Average winning score for 6 events in June was -1.6!!


The FairWay Golf Tour is excited to host Super Major #6 @ WinStar GC this weekend! 1st place is currently $6500 with 32 players signed up so far and could go as high as $10,000 with a full field of 54 players!! The course rotation will be East-West with tee times starting at 11AM Saturday and 10AM Sunday. The weather forecast looks great with temps in the lo 90's both days. Congratulations to Brad Cochran and Ryan Cummings, last week's winners on the Tour! Brad fired a net score of -2.2 at Brookhaven and Ryan fired a net score of -0.7 at Oak Tree to move into a tie for first place in the Bonus Cash Race with Mike Camp. There is currently $4110 in the Bonus Cash Pool with 2 Super Majors still on the calendar before the Bonus Cash gets paid out August 20th @ TPC Las Colinas. Since Super Major #5 at Fossil Creek June 3-4, there have been 6 events on the Tour and here are the winning scores: Coyote Ridge -1.2, Rose Creek -2.4, Old American -1.2, Lake Windcrest -1.7, Brookhaven -2.2 and Oak Tree -0.7 for an average winning score of -1.6!! By contrast, you would need to go back to May 13th to find six events on the other handicap tour in Texas, with those winning scores being -2, -4, -5, -5, -4 and -3 for an average winning score of -3.7, more than double lower than the average on the FairWay Tour. A quick check of 2017 prize money paid shows the FairWay Tour at $250,000 and the other tour at slighly more than $100,000, with that split into 2 flights...More events with Higher Payouts and Higher Winning Scores on the FairWay Tour! Actually, go look at ANY TOUR and you will not find winning scores consistently as high as you will find on this Tour! That being said, we expect someone to tear it up this weekend at WinStar! Is that someone YOU!!? Come join us because..."If you don't tee it up you can't win!"
