New Ulm's Thelen Claims STPGA Assistant Championship

From the Southern Texas PGA:

Kingwood, TX: Tim Thelen, assistant PGA Professional at The Falls Resort and Golf Club in New Ulm, had not made a bogey through 35 holes of the Southern Texas PGA Callaway Golf Assistant Championship. That is quite a feat on the tough Deerwood Club golf course where the championship was being played. Thelen knew he had a two shot lead and a bogey on the 36th and final hole would be enough, but he wanted to play the entire tournament without a bogey. He didn’t accomplish that goal when he made bogey on the last hole, but he did accomplish his main goal – winning the championship – by one shot over hard charging Brandon Dixon, assistant professional at Miramont Country Club in Bryan. Dixon fired the tournament’s low round with a six under par 66 in round two.

Thelen won the National PGA Assistant Championship last year, and claimed the 2010 STPGA Assistant title with rounds of 68-69=137, and the $1,200.00 first place check. Dixon’s second place finish earned him a spot in this year’s National PGA Assistant Championship in November, along with third place finisher Bill Wening (70-70=140) of Northgate Country Clubi n Houston, and fourth place finisher Brandt Keischnick (68-73=141) of Whispering Pines in Trinity.

A complete list of final results is provided below, and is also posted on the Southern Texas PGA web site ( which lists the tournament winnings for those finishing in the money. For more information you can contact the Southern Texas PGA at 832-442-2404.

As defending champion of the National PGA Assistant Championship Thelen was exempt from the qualifying stage, which meant the next three low finishers gained a spot in the national championship.

Tim Thelen, The Falls, 68-69--137
Brandon Dixon, Miramont CC, 72-66--138
William Wening, Northgate CC, 70-70--140
