Terrence Miskell of New Braunfels claimed the 2004 Texas Golf Association State Player of the Year Award. With a steady string of consistent play that produced top 10 finishes in TGA State Championships, Miskell outdistanced 2003 State Player of the Year Alan Hill by a final margin of 60 points.
It started in May at the TGA State Four-Ball when Miskell and partner Titus Harris won for the second consecutive year. In his other TGA State Championship appearances Miskell posted a 7th place finish in the State Amateur, and was runner-up at the State Mid-Amateur. His play at the national level was just as impressive.
Miskell qualified for three USGA National Championships, Public Links, Amateur and Mid-Amateur, and made match play in each of them. He reached the round of 16 in the Public Links, the round of 32 in the Amateur, and advanced to match play in the Mid-Amateur.
The TGA Regional Player of the Year Awards where earned by Jeff New of The Woodlands in the South Region and Chuck Palmer of Dallas in the North. New was rewarded for a steady year, finishing 11th in the South Region Amateur, and posting runner-up finishes in both the South Region Mid-Amateur & Four-Ball championships. Palmer was a runaway winner for North Regional Player of the Year, posting a wire-to-wire victory in the North Region Amateur in March, and also winning the North Mid-Amateur in August.
Each of these awards will be officially presented next June during the Player’s Banquet at the Texas State Amateur.
