The 2017 point rankings are current through the Firecracker, as of July 5th. At roughly halfway through the 2017 season, there are still plenty of players within range for the top 8 Mid-Am and top 3 Senior spots on the 2017 Austin Rudy’s Cup team. Grady Bruce, this year’s captain, will have 3 picks from outside these eleven automatic selections to round out our team.
The next point eligible tournament is the 2017 Texas Mid-Am Match Play, to be played at San Antonio Country Club. This tournament is limited to the first 84 entries, and as of July 8, it looks as if there are 83 filled spots. Deadline for entry is July 12 at 5:00 pm.
Just one month away is the 2017 Austin Men’s City Championship, set for August 3-6, with an entry deadline of July 31. Later in August, the new Austin Mid-Am Match Play event is set for the 18th-20th at Grey Rock Golf Club. The event will consist of an 18-hole stroke play qualifying round with the top 32 players moving on to round 1 of the match play bracket. Entry deadline for this event is August 9th.
