Delagarza and Smith Win Women’s Four-Ball for Third Consecutive Time

Briefly: Faith Delagarza of Midland and Amari Smith of McKinney become the first to claim the Women’s Four-Ball championship three consecutive times with a gross tournament score of 9-under-par 135. Off to a slow start on day 1, the team finished the round 2-under-par 70 and 4 strokes back from the lead. Knowing they had to bring the fire for the final round, Delagarza and Smith stuck to their tried-and-true strategy with confidence.

“We use the same game plan every year,” Delagarza said. “We’re super close and we love each other so when one gets down, we lift each other up and that’s what lets us thrive here.”

The pair from Dallas Baptist University waltzed into the clubhouse with a bogey free 7-under 65 for the final round. Delagarza and Smith said they played both aggressive and conservative at the right times, allowing them to make history.

“It’s definitely fun and really special,” Smith said of the winning feeling. “No one’s ever done it before so it’s really cool and hopefully we can come back next year and continue the tradition,” Delagarza said.

The TGA would sincerely like to thank Royal Oaks and all its staff members and the volunteers for helping make this event possible.

Final Results

Golf Course: Founded in 1969, Royal Oaks Country Club is nestled between luscious trees and serene lakes in the heart of Dallas. Today, the club has become one of the premiere golf courses in Texas.

Royal Oaks has been host to many TGA majors, including the 2010 Texas Amateur and the 2015 Texas Mid-Amateur.

Weather: The temperature reached 95 degrees with constant winds of 13 mph and gusts up to 24 mph out of the south-southwest.

Delagarza and Smith Win Back to Back Women’s Four-Ball Championships

Briefly: Faith Delagarza of Midland and Amari Smith of McKinney captured their second Women’s Four-Ball Championship with outstanding rounds of 65-66 for a 13-under-par finish.  With their win last year, and being teammates on the Dallas Baptist University Golf Team they have figured out a good strategy that lead them to success.  “It’s definitely nice because we’re already teammates,” Faith Delagarza said, “We already have that team boding so we can rely on each other.”

Final Results

 

Golf Course: Founded in 1927, Midland Country Club opened as a nine-hole course with sand greens. From these modest beginnings, the championship golf course has evolved into one of the premier private clubs in West Texas. At its center is a classic parkland course that was designed in 1951 by Texas Golf Hall of Famer Ralph Plummer. In the fall of 2015, the club hired Weibring-Wolfard Golf Design to oversee a major renovation of the golf course and practice facility. The $8.9 million project finished in 2017 and includes a modernized 7,354-yard, par-72 championship course to better test the skills of today’s players. Over the years, Midland Country Club has played host to many elite amateur tournaments, including eight TGA Major Championships (the 1965, 1971 and 1997 Texas Amateur, 1995 Texas Mid-Amateur, 1970 and 1979 Texas Senior Amateur and the 1963 and 2001 Women’s Texas Amateur).

 

Weather: The temperature reached 100 degrees with steady winds at 17 mph out of the south-southeast.

 

In Contention: Hannah Harrison of Plano and Evelyn Arguelles of Dallas tied for second with Megan Daleo of Plano and Allie Bianchi with a two day total of 10-under-par 134.

 

What’s Next: The 2020 Women’s Senior Stroke Play at Ridglea Country Club in Fort Worth September 28-30, 2020.
