NTPGA All-American Tour
at The Haven
Boys 15 - 18
Brookhaven CC (Champions
Winter weather continues to disrupt. Another ice storm hit
the metroplex and Round 1 had to be cancelled. Although Sunday's forecast included some sun and the temperature to get
up to 50 - it didn't happen. Although the ice was gone, it never got warmer than the mid-40's and we didn't see a hint
of sun until we were almost through with the round. Thankfully it didn't get too windy - but it was rough. Kyle
was able to tie for 6th place and the points put him on the top of the Points Challenge leaderboard.
Lone Star Memorial
Boys 14 - 15
The Tribute Golf Course
What a great way to celebrate Kyle's 14th Birthday. Kyle had been participating
in this annual tournament since it's inception in 2007, but missed last year due to a schedule conflict. He had
won it in 2007 & 2009, with runner-up finishes in 2008 & 2012. This year it was back at The Tribute GC in The
Colony - the site of Kyle's win as a 9yo. Round 1 was on Saturday, the day before Kyle's birthday and he shot a 73 -
one shot off the lead. Despite the windy conditions - Kyle was hitting every fairway. The next day - turning 14,
he went out and shot the lowest round in his division - 69. That put him in a tie with Jake Benanti. It took 4
playoff holes - but Kyle secured the win and an AJGA Performance Star
Oklahoma Junior Golf Championship
Boys 14 - 15
Weeks Park, Wichita
Falls CC, & River Creek GC
This was Kyle's 4th visit to Wichita Falls for the Texas-Oklahoma Junior Golf Championship. This
tournament has been around since 1957 and some notable winners include Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, and Scott Verplank.
The first year Kyle entered, he was 11, playing up to the Boys 12-13 division. He shot a 75, putting him in a tie for
3rd. However, that year the temperatures were over a hundred and Kyle ended up with food poisoning that evening and
had to withdraw. The next year he struggled on the last round, when unseasonably cold and wet condtions hit on day 3
and he finished 8th. Then, last year, he was able to put together 3 solid rounds and took home his first TO trophy for
his 3rd place finish.
Getting better each year - the kids
had sunny skies - no rain - but lots and lots of wind. After 2 rounds, Kyle was tied for 5th - just 4 shots back
from Daniel Seibert and Parker Coody who were tied for 1st. Kyle was determined to finish higher than last year and
he shot the lowest round - a 72, which put him in a tie with Daniel. They went back out on the course and Kyle lost
the 3rd playoff hole to secure the 2nd Place trophy, continuing his upward trend.
