North Team Comes Out Firing at 2015 Texas Shootout
DALLAS – The North Team leads the South Team 22.5 points to 13.5 points as play came to a close on Sunday at the 2015 Texas Shootout at Dallas National Golf Club.
The North Team, captained by Mike Peck of Irving, got off to a hot start in the morning Foursome matches by taking a swift lead over the South Team with a four-point lead of 11 to 7. Josh Irving of Dallas and Clay Hodge of Tyler was the marquee pairing of the first half of the day, sweeping Conroe’s Scott Loving and Houston’s Justin Kaplan and gaining all three of the available points for the match.
John Hunter of Houston and Taylor Dio of the Woodlands were the lone bright spot of the South Team during the alternate shot portion earning two and a half of the three available points over Fort Worth’s Will Osborne and Dallas’ Scott Abbott.
To no surprise, the North Team picked up right where they left off in the afternoon Four-Ball matches and again managed to out play the South Team 11.5 to 6.5 with three of their pairings taking all three points in their matches. This spectacular team play gave the North Team an exceptional nine-point lead over the South Team to head into the final day Singles Matches.
The 2015 North Team consists of Scott Abbott of Dallas, Zach Atkinson of Colleyville, Rob Couture of Dallas, Brad Gibson of Plano, Aaron Hickman of Addison, Clay Hodge of Tyler, Jerry Hudgins of Tyler, Joshua Irving of Dallas, Will Osborne of Fort Worth, Chuck Palmer of Dallas, Captain Mike Peck of Irving and Lewis Stephenson of Mansfield.
The 2015 South Team is comprised of Captain Mike Booker of The Woodlands, Nicholas Cristea of Houston, Taylor Dio of The Woodlands, John Hunter of Houston, Justin Kaplan of Houston, Randy Lance of Spring, Ivan Lawson of Cypress, David Leiss of Houston, Scott Loving of Conroe, Larry Nunez of Austin, Jay Reynolds of Austin, and Ross Wilhelm of San Antonio.
The format for the Shootout includes foursome, four-ball and singles matches. A total of 24 matches will be played over two days. Each match is worth three points – one point each for front nine, back nine and 18 – making for 72 available points. The first team to accumulate 36.5 points is the winner.
The 13th Texas Shootout is being held at the esteemed Dallas National Golf Club, making this their first ever TGA event. Designed by celebrated golf course architect Tom Fazio, Dallas National opened in 2002 and has been among Golf Digest’s Top 100 Courses in America since 2005 (currently No. 61) and the magazine’s choice as Best in State since 2007.
Final Round Singles Matches will take place Monday, October 26th at 8:00AM. For more information, please here.
