Kody King shot 71 to finish six under par for the tournament and capture the 2013 Bluebonnet Cup by two shots over Mike Allen. King played solid golf in windy conditions while other players struggled to keep pace. King started the day with a one shot lead over Steve Paterson and two shots over Jerry Thorn and Eric Garza. Garza shot even par 72, Thorn shot one over 73 and Paterson struggled with the putter and posted 75. Garza finished 3rd, at three under, Thorn finished 4th at two under 214 while Paterson and Chris Shive finished T5 at one under par 215.
Mike Allen posted 68 to record the the low round of the day and move into second place overall at four under par. Allen recorded seven birdies, one double and one bogey to fall two shots short of the title. He birdied one, five and six to turn in one under then birdied 10 and 12, bogied 13 then birdied 16 and 18 to shoot three under on the back nine.
Allen, shown here on the left with Head Professional Dylan Lemke presenting the trophy, won the senior division. Mark Baldree and Richard Welch finish tied for 2nd in the seniors division shooting three over par 219 for the three days.
The golf course was in excellent condition and the staff at Bluebonnet Hills along with the volunteers did an excellent job of presenting the course and running the tournament. Players celebrated after the round with food and beverages. Shown here are some of the players and wifes enjoying the late afternoon breeze and shade on the veranda of the clubhouse while looking over Decker Lake and the setting sun.
