Old Glory Open

The Texans Taking Care of Texans Foundation is an organization whose mission is to provide education benefits for spouses and children of Texans who die or become fully disabled while on active military duty.

Alas, a lot of Texans fall in that category these days. The foundation is staging its very first fundraiser, and it's a golf tournament in San Antonio (Fair Oaks Ranch, just outside of San Antonio on Interstate 10, to be exact). The Old Glory Open is slated for Fair Oaks Ranch Country Club on Sept. 19.

Registration information is available on the tournament website. The format will be modified shamble - everyone tees off, the team selects the best driver and all play their own ball for the remainder of the hole. Two best balls on each hole make up the team score; two randomly selected holes will be deducted as a team handicap.

Speaking of shambles: If you've ever wondered just what the heck that wacky format your golf club is playing next week really is, check out the Golf Tournament Formats and Golf Bets glossary on It's the best such glossary I've yet to run across.
