DALLAS – The Southern Texas PGA captured the inaugural Levy Cup Matches with a 14 to 10 win over the Northern Texas PGA at Royal Oaks Country Club in Dallas. The Matches were created to celebrate Paul Levy who is completing his first year of a two-year term as President of the PGA of America.
The newly created annual competition between the two Texas PGA Sections is comprised of six Assistant PGA Professionals and six Senior PGA Professionals who qualified through their respective Section Major Championships. The is a Ryder Cup-style format consisting of Four-Ball, Foursome and Singles Matches over two days.
The Matches were tied, 6-6, following the first day of competition. Troy Schleicher, a PGA Teaching Professional at Lake Windcrest Golf Club, clinched the cup for Southern Texas with a 2&1 victory over Robert McMillan, the PGA Director of Instruction at McMillan Golf Academy.
“We have had a lot of fun these last few days," said Paul Levy during the awards ceremony. "The Southern Texas and the Northern Texas Sections have such a great relationship. It really was kind of surreal, you know seeing your name up there. I never got involved in the PGA to have a cup match or to have something come back. I thank you all."
Teams received one point for winning a match and a half point for any match that was tied after eighteen holes.
