Hope everyone is in the midst of a great holiday season. There hasn't been much going on lately in the world of Texas golf, as the relative dearth of posting here indicates. But here are a couple stories that have popped up recently:
• Hal Sutton's Boot Ranch is getting the boot from the Municipal Police Employees Retirement Fund, the Louisiana police pension organization that has been a major funder of the problem-plagued Fredericksburg luxury development. MPERS says it is selling off its interest in Boot Ranch.
• An injuried Iraq war veteran is given a customized golf cart by friends and supporters in Friendswood.
• "Big Break VI" contestant Jeff Mitchell from Frisco tells his hometown paper the participating on the show was an "intense" experience.
