  • TX Cup played away (in Houston)

    • Per agreement, home team must provide TX Cup venue to away team by June 1

    • Between June 1 and TX Cup weekend, we will plan several trips to practice at TX Cup venue

  • Historically, whichever team is ahead going into Sunday usually wins TX Cup. Recently, Houston has owned us in Saturday morning best ball. With this in mind:

    • Provide TX Cup Captain your top-3 choices as partners

      • Do not limit yourself to just one partner

      • Conversely, ‘I can play with anyone’ is not acceptable

    • We play a lot of golf throughout the year. Play more best ball matchplay with potential partners in outings throughout the year! Do not wait until TX Cup season to do so

  • Fun fact: We have never lost a TX Cup when each player earns at least half point!
