Flodder Financial Shootout Returns to Falcon Point
KATY – The Flodder Financial Shootout returns to The Club at Falcon Point on June 21-22 for the fourth straight year. The event is the seventh tournament on the Legends Junior Tour schedule this year and the second of three LJT events in June.
“The LJT is excited to return to Katy for this year’s Flodder Financial Shootout,” LJT Tournament Manager Adam Schulte said. “The club has been an amazing host the last three years, and we look forward to another great event with a strong field of players.”
Flodder Financial Group has been the proud sponsor of the championship since the tournament’s inception in 2013. The company’s commitment and dedication to junior golf has allowed the championship to grow over the years and become a strong 84-player tournament on the LJT schedule.
The Flodder Financial Shootout is split into three divisions: Boys 15-18, Girls 12-18 and a Boys 14 & Under Division. Top finishers in each division will earn AJGA Performance Stars along with exemptions into LJT Invitational events. Unique to this championship on the LJT schedule, the winner of each division will receive a custom-made Flodder Financial Shootout silver belt buckle and for the first time in the tournament’s history, the lowest score in Tuesday’s final round will receive a smaller belt buckle.
Dallas’ Ben Gregg made 12 birdies and won last year’s Boys 15-18 Division after shooting rounds of 67-68 to get to 9-under overall. Rhett O’Rear won the Boys 14 & Under Division at 1-over-par, while Natalie Cao of Sugar Land won the Girls 12-18 Division at 3-under.
All three players joined a distinguished list of past champions, including Cole Hammer, who won this event in 2013 and is teeing it up at the 121st U.S. Open this weekend at Torrey Pines. Other notable past champions include Walker Lee, Travis Vick, Ashni Dhruva, Macy Fox, Scott Roden and Garrett Martin.
The Club at Falcon Point has 18 holes of championship golf, offering variety and challenge off the tee and into the greens. The par-72 layout was designed by Bruce Devlin and Robert von Hagge.
The first round is scheduled for Monday, June 21 with tee times starting at 7:30 a.m. Final round pairings will be redrawn per Round 1 scores and begins at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 22.
