MONT BELVIEU, TX
—Danny Edwards of Wellington, Florida captured the Veterans Division title for the second consecutive year at the 23rd
Lone Star NGL Texas Senior Open, presented by S & B Engineers and Constructors and Vortech Contracting, finishing with a 36-hole total of 141 (-1).
“It’s nice to repeat,” said Edwards. “It’s hard enough to win one, and it’s even tougher to win two, so I feel pretty good. I didn’t play very well yesterday, but today I had a really good round, especially on the front side. It was great to finish up and shoot a pretty good tournament score.”
Following Round 1 of the Veterans Division, David Lundstrom of Houston, Texas led the division with a score of 70 (-1), leaving Edwards trailing behind by 3 strokes. Today, during Round 2, Edwards opened up his front 9 with 4 birdies giving him the lead. Edwards made his final birdie of the day on the 11th
hole and finished the round 3-under par.
“It’s always nice to come back to Eagle Pointe and play in this event. The Southern Texas PGA does a very nice job running this event and guys come from all over the country—It’s one of the best State Senior Opens in the Country,” said Edwards. “I look forward to it. I’ve got a lot of friends out here that I’ve gotten to know through the years.”
With his Veterans Division win, Edwards is leaving Mont Belvieu with a crystal trophy and $2,000 in winnings.
