Horseshoe Bay + Wind = High Scores

HORSESHOE BAY, TEXAS (March 2, 2008)--The first-annual Horseshoe Bay Invitational turned into a survival test as strong winds blew across the Applerock and Ram Rock courses at Horseshoe Bay Resort and Country Club.

In the end, Dean Lundquist emerged as the winner by one shot over Joe Bendetti, and by two over Jamie Kellam and George Covert, Jr.

Playing conditions for round one at Applerock were tough enough, with Lundquist, Bendetti, and Kellam sharing the lead with 77s. But round two at Ram Rock, a course known as one of the most difficult in the state even in calm conditions, saw scores skyrocket as only one player was able to break 80. The three co-leaders shot 83, 84, and 85, respectively.

In the Senior Division, Gordon Butler played outstanding golf given the conditions, shooting 71-77 for a 148 total and a seven-shot win over Leon Walthall and Donald Henderson.
