GCAA Summer Series: Practice Round Complete at the GCAA Summer Series Championship at Oak Hills
SAN ANTONIO, Texas ─ It was overcast at Oak Hills Country Club as players took the course to practice for the GCAA Summer Series Championship.
In the spirit of competition, the participants played in a best ball practice round with one of the members at Oak Hills Country Club. Indiana University senior Mitch Davis and his club member partner lit up the course this afternoon, shooting a 10-under 61, with Davis himself shooting a 6-under 65.
“Our course, the Pfau Course, is extremely difficult, so it was kind of fresh air coming to a place you could be playing where you can go low if you play well,” Davis said. “I’m excited to get going tomorrow.”
This week, players from the GCAA Summer Series will be playing at Oak Hills Country Club, which has hosted numerous PGA Tour events, with winners such as Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino and Ben Crenshaw.
“Even though it no longer hosts an event, it’s still a place where the best players try to, you know, keep their games in shape when they’re not on the road,” Ryan Polzin, Head Golf Professional of Oak Hills, said.
Oak Hills is a par-71, Tillinghast-design course that plays at just over 6,900 yards. Polzin’s prediction for a final score is nine or 10 under, based on the course conditions and weather.
“We’ve hosted enough tournament golf that I feel confident that I think a player shooting three under each day is going to have a very good chance at winning this tournament,” Polzin said.
The first round begins at 8 a.m. with players teeing off of both the first and 10th tees. Follow the GCAA Summer Series Championship on Golfstat HERE, and watch tomorrow’s first tee shots on Instagram Live!
