Dornick Hills CC keeps 45-Player field in check as net score of +0.5 wins $7150

Built in 1913, Dornick Hills CC is truly a work of art that has withstood the test of time. The 6500 yd par 70 course once again provided a great test as no player was able beat their hcp over two rounds in Major #4. Jeremy Copeland was the closest, shooting a 2-Day Total of 140.5, which gave him a winner's check of $7150 and a commanding lead in the Red River Cup Points Race. A net score of +6.1 cashed a check on this beautiful and deceptively difficult gem in Ardmore, OK. As I stated just last week in my newsletter, the scoring on the FairWay Tour traditionally gets higher with the fall season. 5 players were able to break their handicap on Saturday and 3 of those players were seniors. But Sunday was a different story as the final foursome featured three players with inexperience playing for the big bucks on the FairWay Tour. Jeremy Copeland, however, has been a member of the tour for 8 years and had won 3 majors prior to Sunday's final round. This experience paid off for Copeland as he was able to hold it together for the victory.
