Mason retained the Ryder Cup trophy at the recent Hill Country Classic Golf Tournament held at Brady Municipal Golf Course. The tournament was a Ryder Cup, 54-hole, match play format.
Four ball (low ball): Mason 3; Brady 2
Foursomes (alternate shot): Mason 2.5; Brady 2.5
Single (individual): Mason 5; Brady 5
Totals: Mason 10.5; Brady 9.5
As the totals indicate, this was a tough competition and the first time in the history of the 4-year event that a visiting team has won. Ironically, the final ½ point was gained on the last putt of the competition; Fred Estes’ opponent missed an 8’ putt and Fred drained his putt from just inside 7’ to secure the Mason victory. We are proud of the entire team as all contributed to the win.
Brady’s hospitality was unmatched and we look forward to returning the favor next year when they visit Mason.
