February 20th, 2018

SPRING, TX – Shadow Hawk’s Bryan Minnick has been chosen Captain of the Southern Texas PGA’s 2018 Texas Joe Black Cup team. The STPGA will compete in this year’s Ryder Cup-style competition against a team of Northern Texas PGA Professionals on November 13-14 at Dallas National Golf Club.

“The Texas Joe Black Cup is the pinnacle event for our members and something every player wants to be a part of,” said Minnick. “I am humbled and honored to be chosen Captain of this year’s STPGA team.  I look forward to leading our PGA Professional in bringing the Cup back to south Texas.”

Minnick, who earned his PGA Membership in 1998, will look to finalize the team following play of the 50th Southern Texas PGA Professional Championship at Victoria Country Club on August 27-29, 2018.

The Texas Joe Black Cup Matches is annually the most anticipated competitive event in the Northern and Southern Texas Sections. This fiercely contested rivalry between the two sister sections is marked by close matches, dramatic shots, uncompromising sportsmanship and friendships that last lifetimes.

Established in 1981, the Texas Joe Black Cup Matches were created to honor Snyder native Joe Black, who was completing his first term as President of PGA of America.

The Northern Texas PGA won the 2017 edition of the tournament taking a 13.5 to 10.5 win at Spanish Oaks Golf Club last fall. The Matches are now tied at 18-18-1.
