+2.9 Wins At Winter Creek


Burt Rieck shot a gross score of 77 (2.1 hcp = net score of 74.9) on Saturday at Winter Creek CC to get a surprising win over Jeff Higgins and Alan Merrick, who finished second and third with net scores of 75 and 75.5. The course conditions were great and the weather was nice as nobody in the field could find their "A" game and Rieck got the default win. In other news, Major #7 will be held at the famous Perry Maxwell designed Dornick Hills CC on Oct. 10-11, located in Ardmore, OK. The course is 70 miles N. of Denton, TX on I-35 and 70 mi. south of Norman, OK on I-35. The course has played host to numerous national events, including "The Maxwell Tournament", a favorite among major college golf teams. The bent grass greens were punched Sept. 10th, so they will be their normal, fast and undulating self, just like all of Maxwell's designs, which also include Southern Hills CC in Tulsa. The event starts at 12 noon Saturday, Oct. 10th. Tee Times will begin at 9am Sunday with the Winner's Check Presentation and Dornick's Sunday Brunch Buffet immediately following play. $475 Online Entry Fee includes all 36-hole course fees, range balls and some of the finest Southern-Style cooking you could wish for at the conclusion of play Sunday afternoon! 1st place $4000 w/full field of 32 players... 1. $4000 2. $2000 3. $1000 4. $600 5. $400 6. $375 7. $350 8. $325
