Matt Jungman played consistent golf, shooting 78-77 en route to winning the 2017 Central Texas Amateur at Forest Creek Golf Club. Jared Taylor posted 80-76 to finish second, one stroke behind, and Bill Sharp II shot 78-79 to finish third. Joshua Pursche and Caleb Schwertner tied for 4th with a 161 total. The winner of the Senior division was Henry Zaragoza, who posted 78-80 for the victory.
This year’s event was moved to later in the year to accommodate upcoming green renovation projects for Forest Creek.
San Antonio took a slim one point lead heading into Sunday singles matches in the 2017 Rudy’s I-35 Cup, and never looked back. The early wave of matches quickly extended that lead, led by a superb round from Danny Simmerman, and a 40 foot match winning putt on the 18th hole from John Pierce. Austin’s Ben Carter was the lone winning match for Austin in the early going, winning 1-up. The middle matches could not overcome early deficits and thus, the later matches proved to be inconsequential. San Antonio wins the 2017 Rudy’s I-35 Cup 17.5 to 10.5. Final Results
The 2018 Rudy’s I-35 Cup will head back to the Austin area, site TBD. The home team has been victorious the last four years of the event, so good luck to Team Austin next year.
The 2017 Rudy’s I-35 Cup gets underway this morning at 8:00 a.m. from Comanche Trace Golf Club in Kerrville, TX. The tournament will consist of Saturday foursomes (alt. shot) matches, Saturday afternoon four-ball matches, followed by Sunday singles matches, led by the 2017 team captain Grady Bruce. Austin looks to defend its 2016 title and go back-to-back for the first time in Rudy’s Cup History. Follow all the action with Live Scoring.
On Friday, the Rivalry Before the Match was played to a 10-10 tie, allowing Austin to retain the Community Cup. A fun event for everyone involved that continues to raise money each year for the Rudy’s Cup charities.
Good luck Team Austin!
