--- Eagle Pointe Golf Club will play host to the 22nd
Lone Star NGL Texas Senior Open presented by S & B and Vortech Contracting on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 – Friday, November 9, 2018. This marks the fifth consecutive year that Eagle Pointe, a 6,467-yard, par 71 layout has hosted this prestigious senior championship.
The 54-hole stroke play event consists of 100 players not only from Texas but from all over the country. The Senior Division will play 36-holes before being cut to the low 30 scores and ties, while a Champion will be named in the Veterans Division after two rounds of play.
In last year’s event, Kent Jones of Los Ranchos, N.M. posted rounds of 65-69-68 for a three-day total of 11-under-par to edge out Brian Wilson by two strokes for the win.
PGA Life Member David Lundstrom shot even par in the opening round and a 65, five better than his age, in the final round to capture the Veteran title by 11 shots. Chuck Moran (Grinnell, Iowa) followed in second with a two-day total of 147 (+5), with David Faulkner (Humble, Texas) and Marshall Gavre (Green Valley, Arizona) tied for third with 151 (+9).
Prior to the Senior Open on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, Eagle Pointe hosted the Lone Star NGL Texas Senior Open Pro-Am. All proceeds went to local charities within Mont Belvieu and the STPGA Foundation. Over the last four years, this event has raised over $50,000. The Stryker Fuels team of Greg Wallace, Tracy Thomassee, James Copeland, Alex Turbeville, and Mike Standly took the top spot with a total of 113 in the shamble event.
