Round 1 Results | Round 2 Pairings

Golf Course: The John Bredemus design was built in 1928 and features a traditional layout with narrow fairways and small greens. The 18-hole championship golf course was renovated by Ralph Plummer in 1954 and then redesigned by Jay Morrish in 1987. Despite its shorter length, the tree-lined fairways and sloped Tifeagle greens have withstood the test of time and demand accuracy over brute strength.

Weather: The temperature reached 78 degrees with steady winds at 16 mph out of the North North-West.

In Contention: Mission native, Stephanie Blount, shot a 75 on the day to trail the lead by a single stroke entering Tuesday’s second round.  Following right behind her is Mina Hardin of Fort Worth and Julia Sedate of Dallas, who shot a 78.

What’s Next: Round 2 starting times begin at 8:00 a.m. Tuesday morning at Ridglea Country Club (Family Course.)
