WindRose Golf Club All-Stars Claim the PGA Jr. League Southern Texas PGA Section Championship
The Champions from the PGA Jr. League South Texas PGA Section Championship.
Led by Garrett Nobles, PGA Head Professional, and Shelby Thibodeaux, PGA Associate, the WindRose Golf Club All-Star team battled through two matches at Hill Country Golf Club to win the Southern Texas PGA Section Championship title and take home the coveted trophy.
“Our kids went out and played well today,” said Nobles. “After narrowly missing qualifying for the Section Championship in 2021, it’s great to see our juniors hard work this year pay off and we’re excited to represent the Southern Texas PGA at the PGA Jr. League Regional.”
This year’s program in Southern Texas featured over 1,525 juniors at 59 facilities taught by 74 PGA Professionals and Associates. The event was the culmination of the season with four teams competing in a Match Play format for the Championship.
In the morning matches, the WindRose 1 All-Star Team played High Meadow Ranch All-Star Team. Both teams earned a spot via the East Qualifier featuring 16 All-Star teams. The semifinal match was extremely close, with WindRose claiming the victory, 7-5.
In the afternoon Championship match at the Lakes Course at Hyatt Hill Country Golf Club, WindRose faced off against Barton Creek Golf Academy, who won the other morning semifinal Match over the Fair Oaks Ranchers.
Bolstered by their victory in the morning, the WindRose All-Star team rose to the challenge and claimed the Section Championship with a final score of 8 ½ - 3 ½.
“I’m very proud of our juniors and how they played out there today,” said Nobles. “Our juniors are so excited, and Shelby and I cannot wait to proudly display this trophy at WindRose Golf Club.”
Nobles, a two-time recipient of the PGA Jr. League Game Changer for having one of the 25 largest programs in the country and the largest in Southern Texas, has been with WindRose Golf Club in Spring, Texas since 2014.
The WindRose All-Star Team advanced to the PGA Jr. League Regional Championship at Firewheel Golf Park (Bridges).
