Cedar Crest Golf Course First of Six Courses Hosting U.S. Adaptive Open Qualifier

Addison – Cedar Crest Golf Course in Dallas, Texas is set to host their first U.S. Adaptive Open Qualifier. The qualifier will be one of only six sites across the United States between April 16 to May 7.  

In 2017, the USGA followed through with a pledge to establish a “championship for the adaptive golf community”. The U.S. Adaptive Open is the 15th and newest USGA Championship for men and women amateur golfers. The tournament is split into eight groups based on the player’s disability and features the widest age range of players with eligible players ranging from 16-80 years old. Modifications in the Rules of Golf were added by the USGA in 2023, permitting players to “compete using on-course aides, loosened club-anchoring rules, and adjusted drops” to accommodate carts. The players compete for two trophies that are given to the lowest-scoring players in the women’s and men’s divisions while copper medals are awarded to the lowest scorers in each of the divisions in the tournament.  

Blazing a path for the future of adaptive golf, you can say that more than a trophy is what is on the line for these players. This is a golf event unlike any other with an opportunity to grow the adaptive golf community year-by-year going into the future. Every golfer wants to uphold this great game and keep improving it and these players are no different. Some of the players shared with the USGA after last year’s event that they wouldn’t even think they could play a full 18 holes and now they are playing as part of a USGA championship.  

With the first two tournaments taking place at Pinehurst Country Club & Resort, this is the first year the tournament will head to a new site. That is not the only new part of the 3rd U.S. Adaptive Open with this year’s event featuring a cut for the first time. Starting April 16, Adaptive players across the country will play in qualifiers to try and punch their ticket to Sand Creek Station.  

The Texas Golf Association is one of six AGAs (Allied Golf Associations) hosting a qualifier with Cedar Crest Golf Course hosting the first U.S Adaptive Open qualifier in the Lonestar State.  

“We are very excited to be a part of this growing initiative for adaptive golf. Cedar Crest is a great and historic course, and we couldn’t think of a better place for a USGA qualifier site,” said Managing Director of TGA Foundation/Outreach Kelly Kilgo “To be a part of six other AGAs hosting a qualifier is something special. We can’t wait to meet these players and not only see them play some great golf but also hear some of their incredible stories.” 

Cedar Crest Golf Course has a rich history of golf and is a favorite amongst metroplex golfers. Designed by A.W Tillinghast, the course held the 1927 PGA Championship, 1926 Dallas Open, 1954 USGA Negro National Open and USGA’s Public Links Championship. The country club was turned public in 1946 after the City of Dallas purchased it. In 2001 the club built a new clubhouse and renovated the course. 

“It means a great deal to Cedar Crest and our team to be able to host an event like this,” shared Cedar Crest’s PGA Professional Ira Molayo. “This provides an opportunity to promote golf in an inclusive way.”  

The Texas Golf Association will be working with the Texas Adaptive Golf Association and hosting its 3rd Texas Adaptive Golf Championship later this fall at Indian Creek Golf Club in Carrollton, Texas on October 7-9.  The TGA has supported the Texas Adaptive Golf Association to help with staff, volunteers, and rules officials for the tournament and this year the TGA will be more involved with the event. Based in Fort Worth, TAGA was founded by Bobby Bell, Randy Shack, and Josh Tankersley to bring the game of adaptive golf to Texas.

Shyla Brown, Henry Guan make First-Ever U.S. National Junior Team

In a press release yesterday, the USGA announced the inaugural U.S. National Junior Team that includes Texans Shyla Brown and Henry Guan.

With the 2024 Olympics kicking off and the Presidents Cup taking place in September, the United States of America has a big year ahead in sports. The USGA elevated it more by grabbing golfers’ attention with their announcement for the U.S. Junior National Team. The team is the newest addition of the U.S. National Development Program which was established to make the United States the global leader in golf. The elite 10 girls and eight boys on the roster will represent the United States on a global level while nurturing the future of America’s top junior players.

The 18-player roster was announced on March 26th and will grow to 30 players over the next three years. The roster will be evaluated annually by a selection committee while the players will participate in bi-annual camps and compete internationally with the first international friendly taking place this summer against Australia. The players will also receive year-round world-class coaching, sports psychology, and nutritional guidance. By 2033, the USGA plans to have state pilot programs to launch players into the U.S. National Junior Roster.

Out of the eight boys and 10 girls announced for the U.S. National Junior Team, two familiar faces from Texas made the roster. Shyla Brown of McKinney and Henry Guan of Irving made the inaugural roster with other junior golfers from the states of Alabama, California, Florida, Kansas, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, and Washington. Brown and Guan, both elite golfers, could not be more deserving of the recognition and the chance to represent the United States of America.

Shyla Brown, the 15-year-old sophomore and two-time Legends Junior Tour winner is coming off a strong 2023 and 2024 season. Brown was one of four junior golfers elected to compete in the Southwest Airlines Showcase, a collegiate event at Cedar Crest Golf Course in November. Brown showed off her skills finishing second behind Allyn Stephens of Houston. Earlier in the year, Brown finished second at the Texas Junior Amateur held at White Bluff Resort in Whitney, Texas. As if that wasn’t impressive already, she went on to finish eighth at the Texas Women’s Open, a professional event held by the Northern Texas PGA Section.  Brown is just getting started and adding U.S. Junior National Team to her resume just shows the skill the Texas Golfer has.

Henry Guan of Irving has an impressive resume that helped propel him into the U.S. Junior National Team roster. The 425th-ranked World Amateur Golfer competed on the Junior Presidents Cup team alongside former Legends Junior Tour player Preston Stout. Guan finished secnd  at the 2022 Veritex Bank Byron Nelson Junior Championship and heading into 2023 finished in the Top 20 at the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship. His list of achievements and wins in tournaments builds every year and playing on the U.S. Junior National Team will only make him more successful.

The eyes of Texas fall on Brown and Guan as they take this big step in junior golf but rest assured, they will be ready.

Maier fought all round scoring five birdies and three bogeys on the round to secure the win. On No.18, Maier hit 3 wood that caught the wind at just the right amount to roll his ball into the water. After his drop, he stuck his shot to 10 feet where he would go on to two-putt and secure his win. “I’m feeling great. I had a good round today with just keeping it in the fairways” shared the Junior. “I had a couple of struggles here and there, but I kept it pretty solid and steady.”

Maier won his second title on the LJT after winning the George Hannon Junior Invitational in 2022 at UT Golf Club. This is Maier’s first major on the LJT. “It means a lot to me. There was a great feel this week and I’m excited to have my name on the list of major winners,” the Texas A&M Golf commit said.

With the win, he earns exemptions into the Veritex Bank Byron Nelson Junior Championship at Lakewood Country Club and the 98th Junior Texas Amateur at The Clubs of Kingwood. “It means a lot to me to earn exemptions into those tournaments. I need to keep my head down and keep working and play well in those tournaments.”

Finishing in a tie for second place was San Antonio’s Preston Hiller and The Woodlands’ Austin Hofferkamp after a 2-under 211 for the tournament. Hiller, a Baylor Golf Commit, tied the lowest round of the day with a 4-under 67. Hiller only had one bogey in the final round and five birdies to move from ninth place to second.  Hofferkamp showed his toughness after scoring a 1-under 70. The TCU Golf Commit would go on to score two birdies on the back nine to finish toward the top of the leaderboard.

Montgomery’s Tyler Sanford and McAllen’s Dylan Villarreal tied for fourth after a 1-under 212 for the tournament. Sanford, a Baylor Golf Commit as well, tied with Hiller for the lowest round of the final day. Sanford went bogey-free through 16 holes before bogeying No. 17. He went to birdie No.18 to tie for fourth.

The Texas Cup Invitational was the first of two boys-only majors on the LJT schedule. The Veritex Bank Byron Nelson Junior Championship is the second one and will be played on June 4-6 at Lakewood Country Club in Dallas.

The Legends Junior Tour would like to thank Eagle’s Bluff Country Club for being a wonderful host and providing a spectacular experience to all our staff and players. This was Eagle’s Bluff’s third time hosting an LJT event in the last six months.

Mierl, Sanford tied for the lead at the Texas Cup Invitational

Tyler Sanford of Montgomery and Trenton Mierl of Austin share the lead after the First Round at the 2024 Texas Cup Invitational. Both players fired off a 3-under 68 to propel themselves to the top of the leaderboard at Eagle’s Bluff Country Club which is hosting the Texas Cup Invitational for the first time.

“I’m feeling good. My game felt sharp out there today,” shared Sanford. “I didn’t have any big mistakes out there, so it was a smooth round.” Sanford started his round with back-to-back birdies that helped set him up for a great round. After making a bogey on hole No. 7, he went on to score two more birdies on the back nine to stay at the top of the leaderboard. “I can take advantage of the par fives and get my driver out and go for it. I played the par threes well too which was an advantage for me.”

Mierl came into the Texas Cup right off his win at the 2024 Spring Preview Championship at Cedar Crest Golf Course. “It was a slow start out there,” shared the high school senior who started on No. 10 today. “I took it one shot at a time.” Mierl made five birdies on his back nine today including three straights to complete the round. “I got hot at the end especially after I chipped in on nine. I put myself in good positions and took advantage when I could.”

Tied for second are San Antonio’s Cameron Villarreal, Montgomery’s J.J. Worrell, and Round Rock’s Cole MacMillan after a two-under 69 for the First Round. “The course is nice, and the greens are rolling well. The par threes played long today but there were also some par fours that you can get after,” shared Worrell. “I got to stay feeling good and work on my tee shots tomorrow morning on the range. I need to keep the shots straighter and not have as many wayward shots.”

In a tight group tied for fifth are Charlie Dial of Fort Worth, Preston Hiller of San Antonio, Mitchell Maier of Richmond, Shiv Parmar of Selma, and Dylan Villarreal of McAllen after a First Round 1-under 70.

Colder weather welcomed the players in the morning with temperatures in the low 50’s. By the time all players made the turn, temperatures rose into the mid-to-high 60’s with a light breeze that made for a great day for golf.

Hole 13 played the toughest on the course today with an average score of 3.66. The 208-yard Par 3 sits in the pine trees where a crosswind from the south plays a major factor in landing on the green with a bunker on each side.

Official yardage for the First Round was 6,790 yards.

The Texas Cup Invitational, the first of the two boys-only majors on the LJT annual schedule, is the LJT boy’s first 54-hole event of the year.
