LJT Heads to San Antonio for Alamo Shootout
DALLAS—The Alamo Shootout returns to San Antonio as the 84-player field takes on the North Course at The Club at Sonterra on July 9-10.
The tournament returned last year after five years off. San Angelo’s Jansen Smith won the Boys 15-18 Division at Briggs Ranch Golf Club with an overall score of 9-under 135. Spring’s Andrew Spaulding won the Boys 14 & Under Division at 3-over 147, while Dallas’ Hailey Jones won the Girls 12-18 Division at 3-under 141.
Smith and Jones would go on to win Player of the Year honors in their respective divisions, while Spaulding would finish runner-up in the Boys 14 & Under Division standings and make his first Jackie Burke Cup team.
This is the eighth ‘Open’ event on the Legends Junior Tour thus far in 2018 and we’ve had a different winner at each event in the Boys 15-18 Division and the Girls 12-18 Division. Dallas’ Connor Adams is coming off a win at the Flodder Financial Shootout on June 25-26 and is looking to be the first multi winner in the Boys 15-18 Division.
