Texas Golf Association, Since 1906
Christopher Wheeler never finished worse than fourth place in his three North Regional championship appearances in 2018. It was his repeated position atop the leaderboard that proved key to winning North Regional Player of the Year honors. Wheeler and partner Derek Abel finished tied for second place in the North Texas Four-Ball. Wheeler, who plays out of the Medalist Golf Club, then in March had a T4 showing at the North Texas Mid-Amateur. At the North Texas Amateur in AugustvWheeler made up four shots in the final round with a one-under-par 71 to tie 36-hole leader Travis Woolf of Fort Worth at the end of regulation play. Wheeler’s hopes for ending his North Regional campaign with a victory were dashed when Woolf chipped in for birdie on the first playoff hole to win the title.
Jacob Davis spent the majority of 2017 recovering from a difficult surgery, Jacob Davis, a member at The Club at Sonterra, rebounded in a big way in 2018 by winning the South Regional Player of the Year award. In March, in his first tournament outing in nearly a year, Davis finished a respectable T29th at the South Mid-Amateur presented by Impact Precision Golf. Four months later, though, he stood in the winner’s circle at the South Amateur presented by Impact Precision Golf held on Fair Oaks Ranch’s Live Oak Course. Tied with Chad Sewell after regulation play with matching 11-under-par 205 totals, Davis drained a clutch birdie putt on the first playoff hole to secure a most gratifying victory.
