Southern Texas PGA takes wins 2009 Texas Joe Black Cup Matches

009 Texas Joe Black Cup MatchesBret Nutt, head golf professional at Redstone Golf Club in Humble, closed out Gilbert Freeman, head golf professional at Dallas’ Lakewood Country Club, with a par on the 16th hole to win their singles match 3&2 and give the Southern Texas PGA a 13-11 victory in the 2009 Texas Joe Black Cup Matches at Bryan’s Miramont Country Club.

The Southern Texas Section had begun the 12 singles matches with an 8-4 lead after yesterday’s four-ball and foursome matches. As the defending champion, the NTPGA needed to accumulate 12 points in the 2009 matches to retain the Cup. The STPGA needed to win 12-1/2 points to wrest control of the trophy from the northerners.

Nutt’s victory gave the STPGA its 13th point, with the NTPGA having grabbed 9 points when Nutt closed out his match. The NTPGA went on to win the final two matches of the day for it’s final total of 11 points.

“We started getting ready for this back in May,” said Jeff Strong, the head golf professional at Mont Belvieu’s Eagle Pointe Golf Club and the Captain of the Southern Texas PGA. “This tournament is really important to us and it feels awesome to win. When you work hard at something and it’s nice to see it work out. I think everyone knew how much it meant to me and to the STPGA to win, and they responded.”
