Doug rounds up the recent Women's Texas Cup Match Play tournament (won by the South); previews the Joe Black Cup Matches, which pits mens teams representing the Northern and Southern Texas sections of the PGA; updates the status of the Village Golf Club in Conroe, until recently known as Panorama Country Club but now a city course; and congratulates Neil Wilkins of Sienna Plantation for being named Southern Texas PGA teacher of the year.
