Host Club: Wichita Falls Country Club is hosting the Jackie Burke Cup Matches for the first time in the event’s 15-year history. The club opened in 1914 and was redesigned by Weibring-Wolfard Golf Design in 2008. The course features narrow fairways along with elevated greens that are rolling well this weekend.
Jackie Burke Cup History: The Jackie Burke Cup is the season-ending event for the Legends Junior Tour and based off the Ryder Cup. The top 12 players from South Texas face off against the top 12 players from North Texas based on the LJT Player of the Year Standings. The tournament features three rounds of match play with players competing in Four-ball matches, Foursome matches and Singles matches.
Event History: The North has won or retained the Jackie Burke Cup each of the last six years and now leads the overall series even at 8-7. Grace Do is the captain of the North Squad, while Annika Clark is the captain of the South Squad. Both players competed with the Legends Junior Tour and then competed collegiately at Texas Christian University.
Weather: The weather was perfect for the second-straight day at the Jackie Burke Cup matches. Temperatures ranged from 40 to 70 degrees throughout the morning with less than 10 miles per hour of wind in the final round.
What’s Next: The Jackie Burke Cup concludes another great LJT season. The next event for the Legends Junior Tour is the Alamo Shootout, which is heading to Fair Oaks Ranch Golf & Country Club on December 14-15.
