Texas Father-Son: The Griffins take it

FRISCO, Tex. (July 10, 2011) -– Another hot, sunny day greeted the players for the final round of the 2011 Father-Son Championship. The Fazio Course at Stonebriar Country Club hosted this year’s championship and allowed players to take a very aggressive strategy. In the Championship Flight, where teams were faced with a combined score format, two teams familiar with the top of the leader board battled throughout the final round. In the end Matt and Will Griffin were able to capture their first state championship title.

Matt and Will Griffin took a one shot lead into the final round after posting 63 and 62 in the two rounds of four-ball, but Juan and Juan Jose Salcedo quickly seized the lead in the final round. The Salcedo team carried a slim lead for much of the day until an untimely triple bogey derailed their efforts.

With a birdie on the 18th hole, Will Griffin posted one under par 71 and Matt Griffin posted two over par 74 to claim a two shot victory. Juan Salcedo fired a final round 75 while Juan Jose shot 71 to finish in second place. The teams of Robert/Trent Booher and Austin/Jeff King tied for third place at eight shots off the lead.
