Final Results

Golf Course: Designed by close friends Joe Finger and Byron Nelson in 1974, Riverhill Country Club’s 18-hole course is a premier location for golf in Texas and the United States.  Based in the heart of Hill Country, the course boasts its rare bent-grass greens and a 7,137 yard, 72-par challenge featuring scenic creeks, hills and a lake throughout the property.  Over time, the course became Nelson’s favorite, where he was quoted saying, “If I had only one golf course to play, it would be Riverhill.”

Weather: Mostly sunny conditions changed to mostly cloudy as the round progressed, high of 76 degrees with a southerly wind that averaged at 9 mph.

In Contention: Jeffery Fountaine of Trophy Club and Randall Brower of Frisco carded an impressive 74 points on the day which was ten and three quarter points over their final round quota. The team surged into second place overall and in the Hogan flight.

In the Nelson flight, Jamey Freisleben of Montgomery and Russell Schroeder of LaPorte carded 69 points, seven and a half over their final round total. Their great play in the final round was good enough for a third place finish overall and a title in the Nelson flight.
