HORSESHOE BAY, TX
--- The team of David Lundstrom, PGA Life Member, and Corbin King, Director of Golf at The Golf Driving Range Round Rock, were crowned the champions of the 2019 Effex Management Solutions Texas Team Championship presented by Adidas, Bushnell, Callaway, Earth Networks, E-Z-Go, Long Drive Agency, Morell Studios, Nine Iron Wines, and Pro-Am Events. Lundstrom and King fired impressive rounds of 65-61 to finish the annual event with a two-day total of 17-under-par (126).
Over the 36-hole event, Lundstrom and King made 17 birdies and at one point in the final round recorded five consecutive. This marks the third year in a row that Southern Texas PGA Professionals have won this event.
“I don’t play a lot of golf so I’m trying to get into it again,” said King. “It was great to team up with David and see him hit so many great shots. I played a little bit better yesterday than I did today. David, on the other hand, played probably as good as anyone has ever played on Ram Rock. It’s more because of him than me that we won this event.”
“It was one of those days where the putts were rolling in,” said Lundstrom. “I hit some nice shots today, so I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts.”
Lundstrom and King had a 5-stroke victory over the Preston Trail Golf Club team of Jeffrey Barton, PGA Director of Instruction, and Nic Ishee, PGA Assistant Professional, as well as the River Crest Country Club team of Reid Parrish, PGA Head Professional, and Colby Webb, Assistant Professional.
The two-man best-ball event featured a field of 88 two-man teams comprised of PGA Members and Associates from the Southern Texas and Northern Texas PGA Sections, who competed at Horseshoe Bay Resort’s Ram Rock, a 6,926-yard layout, and Summit Rock, a 7,246-yard Nicklaus design, courses. The field competed for an overall purse of $49,000, the largest purse ever given out. Lundstrom and King shared $5,400 for their victory.
