Arthur is NTPGA Player of Year for 6th Time

From the Northern Texas PGA:

DALLAS, TX – The Northern Texas PGA is pleased to announce that Perry Arthur, PGA teaching professional at Sherrill Park Golf Course in Richardson, has captured the 2010 Cleveland Golf / Srixon & Club Car NTPGA Player of the Year Award. This marks Arthur’s sixth NTPGA Player of the Year Award. His five previous awards came in 1996, 1999, 2004, 2006 and 2009. Arthur surpassed Lindy Miller, PGA teaching professional at Shady Oaks Country Club for the most NTPGA Player of Year Awards.

Arthur accumulated a 332.50 point total to capture the 2010 Cleveland Golf / Srixon & Club Car NTPGA Player of the Year title by a 50.08 point margin over Dean Larsson, PGA assistant golf professional at Bent Tree Country Club.

He finished the year with a tie for third place finish in the NTPGA Section Championship, a tie for fourth place finish in the NTPGA Professional Championship, sixth place finish in the Callaway Golf Western Championship and a tie for eighth place in the E-Z-GO/ UST Mamiya Eastern Championship. Arthur remains atop the NTPGA individual major championships won list with eighteen (18) tournament victories to his name. He leads Benny Passons (16) by two victories, Lindy Miller (14) by four and Dean Larsson (12) by six.

Stuart Deane, PGA teaching professional at Sinclair’s Golf Training Center in Euless, captured the 2010 Ben Hogan / NTPGA Stroke Play Average Award. Deane finished the year with a stroke average of 71.00 for six rounds. He shot four sub par rounds which included two rounds of 68 (-4) and two rounds of 70 (-2). The one over par round of 73 in the final round at the NTPGA Section Championship turned out to be just enough to capture the award by a slim 0.13 of a stroke margin over Perry Arthur. This marks Deane’s first Ben Hogan / NTPGA Stroke Play Average Award.

The Cleveland Golf / Srixon & Club Car NTPGA Player of the Year Points Challenge is a season long competition that rewards the top-40 finishers in the four major individual stroke play events. The Ben Hogan / NTPGA Stroke Play Average Award requires a minimum of six rounds in the four major individual stroke play events. The four events are the E-Z-GO / UST Mamiya Eastern Championship, Callaway Golf Western Championship, NTPGA Professional Championship and the NTPGA Section Championship.

The top 32 finishers on the 2010 Cleveland Golf / Srixon & Club Car NTPGA Player of the Year Points Challenge will receive invitations into the Cleveland Golf / Srixon & Club Car Match Play Championship on October 18-20 at Shady Oaks Country Club in Fort Worth.

Lindy Miller captured the Senior Division of the NTPGA Player of the Year Points Challenge. Miller amassed 325.00 points with a Senior Division win in the E-Z-GO/ UST Mamiya Eastern Championship, a second place finish in the NTPGA Section Championship and NTPGA Seniors’ Championship. This also earned Miller a spot on the NTPGA Joe Black Cup team.
