The magazine also lists the four biggest improvers in each state - the most-improved low-handicap and middle-handicap men; the most-improved woman; and the most-improved junior.
So let's give a shout-out to Texas' representatives:
- Landon Allen, Corsicana Country Club, from 2.5 to +2.9
- Matt Poole, South Shore Harbor Country Club, from 23.6 to 11.7
- Catherine Matranga, Ridglea Country Club, from 1.6 to +2.6
- Kayli Quinton, Blackhorse Golf Club, from 11.1 to 1.0
You might recognize Matranga's name. She was a very successful collegiate player at TCU who has since turned pro and is playing the Futures Tour.
