Australian golfer Brady Watt wins @ Woodforest with net score of +0.6

Australian golfer Brady Watt felt right at home with the breezy conditions and fast bermuda greens in Houston last weekend as the former Australian Amateur Champion outlasted the field to win this event at gorgeous Woodforest GC. Congratulations Brady! A net score higher than par has now won our last 3 Majors with net scores of +0.6, +0.7 and +0.8...and these are 2-Day Totals! This should say alot about the accuracy of our handicap system as the players who won these events were roughly +3, 0 and 3 handicaps... displaying a pretty wide range of golfing ability! We feel the essence of close competition is beneficial for anyone who participates on the tour! In other news, tour regular Dan Raiford DQ'd himself from the event due to a rules infraction he did not know was an infraction until he finished his round and turned in his scorecard. After returning home, he realized per the USGA Rules, that you must play the ball from where it rolls on the putting green if the wind or gravity moves it from its original position. Dan had replaced his ball to its original position before hitting his putt. I have the utmost respect for those players who are willing to honor the integrity of the game of golf, so let's take a lesson from Dan's honesty and interest in protecting the field! The tour has 2 events the weekend of Feb 14-15 at Lincoln West in OKC and Thorntree in DeSoto, TX. We hope to see you there because..."if you don't tee it up you can't win!"
