Tournament History: The Fall Challenge was created three years ago to fill the demand of more open events on the Legends Junior Tour. The event has posted a strong 84-player field each year and The Rawls Course joins Traditions Club and The Campus Course at Texas A&M as past host sites of this event.
Next Up: The Legends Junior Tour will head south to Corpus Christi, Texas for the James A. Ragan Memorial at Corpus Christi Country Club. The 84-player field will take on the Robert Trent Jones Sr. course and be tested by some more windy conditions.
