Doggett, Nixon, and O’Rear Win Flodder Financial Shootout
Briefly: Grant Doggett of Mont Belvieu hung onto his 18-hole lead to win the Boys 15-18 Division. Doggett finished the tournament at even-par 144 after rounds of 70-74. Canton’s Mia Nixon continued her dominance and won the Girls 12-18 Division by five strokes with a tournament total of 1-over-par 145. After a crowded first round leaderboard, Rhett O’Rear of Plano came out on top in the Boys 14 & Under Division. O’Rear won the division with scores of 73-72 for a 1-over-par tournament total 145.
In Contention: The Boys 15-18 Division was decided after a grueling three-hole playoff between first round leader Grant Doggett and Brooks Pawlak. Doggett and Pawlak both finished at even-par 144 for the tournament and a playoff was needed. The sudden death playoff was played on the par-4 18th hole which played 449 yards. The playoff was decided on the third playoff hole when Doggett made par. The first two playoff holes were split with a pair of birdies on the first and pars on the second. In third place was Carter Patterson followed by four players tied for fourth place.
In the Girls 12-18 Division Mia Nixon held onto her five-stroke lead heading into the final round winning by an impressive margin. Her final round score of 2-over par 74 did not match her opening round score but was more than enough. Finishing in second place was Morgan Ankenbrandt who had the only under par round in the girl’s division on Tuesday. In third place was Jenna Madden followed by Yvonne Chamness and Mallory Mathews in fourth and fifth place, respectively.
Rhett O’Rear defeated Coltrane Mittag on the first playoff hole to win the Boys 14 & Under Division. After the two battled all day and both players posted a tournament total of 1-over par 145, a sudden death playoff was needed to determine a champion. After a stellar iron shot into the green on the first playoff hole, the par-4 10th, O’Rear was able to make par and secure the win. Rohan Shastry finished third, Reese Roberts fourth and Brody Knowlton rounded out the top five.
In addition to the overall champions, the low final round score was also recognized in each division. These players were recognized by the Flodder Financial Group for their commitment to finishing the tournament strong. By scorecard playoff, Andrew Hill who shot 2-under par 70 today was recognized in the Boys 15-18 Division. Morgan Akenbrandt was recognized in the Girls 12-18 Division after a 1-under par 71 and Reese Roberts in the Boys 14 & Under Division with a 2-under par 70.
Golf Course: The Club at Falcon Point is hosting the Flodder Financial Shootout for the fourth straight year. Designed by Bruce Devlin and Robert von Hagge, the golf course features 18 championship holes forcing players to hit a variety of shots. The course is playing just over 6,600 yards in both the Boys 15-18 Division and the Boys 14 & Under Division and a little less than 6,000 yards in the Girls 12-18 Division.
About the Sponsor: The Flodder Financial Group has sponsored the Flodder Financial Shootout since it’s inception in 2010. The group’s goal is to provide the most complete and accessible set of applications to help monitor and manage accounts. Kyle Flodder is the Managing Director of Client Strategies and played junior golf in Texas before going on to play collegiately at TCU. President of the group is Steven Flodder, who enjoys coming out and watching the players during the Flodder Financial Shootout.
Tournament Format: The Flodder Financial Shootout is a 36-hole stroke play event for players ages 12-19 that have a valid membership with a member of the Texas Junior Golf Alliance.
Weather: Early morning thunderstorms left the area as players started arriving for Tuesday’s final round. Blue skies, soft conditions and a light breeze made for ideal scoring conditions. The high during play was 90 degrees.
What’s at Stake: The top half of each division will be awarded points towards the LJT Player of the Year Standings. The tournament is ranked by Golfweek and Junior Golf Scoreboard, while also awarding AJGA Performance Stars to the top finishers.
What’s Next: The next stop on the LJT schedule is in Argyle, TX at Lantana Golf Club. Lantana GC is set to host this year’s LJT Collegiate Preview June 28-29, 2021. For more information about the LJT Collegiate Preview, click here.
