justin fraley - tga north amateurJustin Fraley of Rowlett is the winner of the Texas Golf Association North Amateur regional championship. Here is the report from the TGA:

Wylie, TX - Former Oklahoma University golfer, Justin Fraley of Rowlett decided to get in a little more competitive golf before joining the workforce after graduation in May. Fraley played a solid front nine but was trailing by a shot to eventual runner up, Rob Couture before taking the lead for good on the back nine at the challenging Woodbridge Golf Club located in Wylie. Justin finished
his last four holes in 2 under par to card a one under 71 for the day, and a 54 hole total of 1 over par (217) to win by three strokes

Rob Couture of Dallas finished in second place for the second consecutive week. Rob was runner up in the first Medalist Series North event held at Tierra Verde last week and continued his fine play again this week at Woodbridge . After three bogeys in a row, Rob got the wheels back on in time to make a key birdie on the 17th hole
then finish strong with par on the difficult 18th. By doing so, Rob stayed out of the tiebreaker for the final state am exemption and took the runner up honors.

Tied for 3rd place were John Bearrie of Arlington , Steve Galko of Dallas , Bart Goodwin of Flower Mound, and former Kansas State golfer Nick Schumacher of Lubbock . The 2005 TGA Player of the Year, Steve Galko earned the final state am exemption via a tiebreaker using his final round score of 71, then his Round 2 score of 74 which bested Bart Goodwin’s Round 2 score of 76.

Roger Marcincuk of Ft. Worth and TCU golfer Jordan Woolf also of Ft. Worth finished T7. David Benner of Frisco had the best round of the day with a blistering 68. Until Sunday not a single red number had been posted.

Woodbridge Golf Club proved to be an excellent test of golf for this championship. The Texas Golf Association extends its gratitude to Paul Kenney, Director of Golf, Eric Askier, Head Professional and their entire staff for being such gracious host and going the extra mile to make this a great event.
