Fall Challenge Heads West
ADDISON– The Fall Challenge returns to The Rawls Course in Lubbock after the event wasn’t held in 2020 due to scheduling conflicts. The 84-player event takes on the par-72 layout as players position themselves in the Player of the Year races with the season nearing the end.
This is the second event of the LJT Fall Season after the North Texas Classic crowned three champions earlier this month. The Fall Challenge is open to all players ages 12-18 with an active membership with a Texas Junior Golf Alliance Member. The tournament field was determined using the Legends Junior Tour Priority Entry System.
Boyd Owens of Baton Rouge, Louisiana won the Boys Division in 2019 at The Rawls Course with rounds of 7-70 to get to 7-under overall and four strokes ahead of the field. Frisco’s Caroline Kent won the Girls Division, while Austin’s Kevin Mu won the Boys 14 & Under Division.
The Rawls Course opened in 2003 and is designed by renowned architect Tom Doak. The course was created for Texas Tech University and was designed by taking a flat cotton field on the high plains and creating an entire landscape from scratch. The Rawls Course offers wide fairways and boldly contoured greens as players battle the winds in West Texas.
The Fall Challenge is the 15th event on the LJT schedule and is one of three remaining in 2021. Top finishers will earn the normal allotment of points for this event and the James A. Ragan Memorial, while Invitational Points will be awarded for the Texas Junior Golf Alliance Invitational. The LJT Players of the Year will be crowned following the Invitational at Tempest Golf Club and Jackie Burke Cup Teams will be released.
The event will be ranked by Golfweek and Junior Golf Scoreboard along with LJT Player of the Year points. The top finishers will earn exemptions into Invitational events as well as all three LJT Majors in 2022.
Players in the Fall Challenge are all members of the Texas Junior Golf Alliance, which is a joint venture between the Texas Golf Association, the Northern Texas PGA and the Southern Texas PGA. The three have partnered together to create a path for junior golfers to take as they progress towards the next step of competitive golf. Players compete in the regional tours in the beginning and move up to the state-wide tournaments with the LJT before heading off to compete nationally and at the collegiate level.
Scores will be updated throughout the weekend and can be followed by clicking here. Pairings for the first round will be sent out on Wednesday, Sept. 22. Pairings for the final round will be done according to scores from the first round and sent out Saturday evening.
