MONT BELVIEU, TX
—Chris Hunsucker of San Antonio, Texas claimed the Championship title at the 23rd
Lone Star NGL Texas Senior Open presented by S & B Engineers and Constructors and Vortech Contracting with rounds of 64-67 for a final 36-hole score of 131 (-11).
“Unfortunately, the weather got us again this year, but as far as my play goes, I was very happy. I hit the ball well, struck it well, and putted well,” said Hunsucker. “When you shoot 11 under for two rounds, you’ve done a lot of good things. I hit it pretty straight, hit a lot of greens, and made some putts.”
Hunsucker led the Senior Division of the Tournament following Wednesday’s Round 1 by two strokes. During Round 2 he started on the #10 tee and came out strong with birdies on holes #10 and #11. Hunsucker went on to add three additional birdies and an eagle on the way to his victory.
David Morland IV of Palm Coast, Florida and Robert Thompson, PGA Teaching Professional at Whispering Pines Golf Club tied for second at the Championship shooting a 36-hole total of 136 (-6).
Low Amateur honors were also awarded today at the Senior Open. Sean Reed of Tulare, California finished tied for 28th
place, shooting 146 (+4) in the 36-hole Championship earning him the Low Amateur recognition.
