Determining the Rolex Junior All-America Teams

Players must have competed in a minimum of six Polo Golf ranked events to be eligible for year-end Rolex Junior All-America honors. AJGA team events count for the purpose of reaching the six-event minimum, but do not receive points. All starts in ranked events will count toward a player’s ranking. Any withdrawals, disqualifications, etc., will count as an event played once a player begins a tournament. Graduating seniors are eligible for Rolex All-America honors as long as they have met the above criteria.

Format of the Rolex Junior All-America Teams:

First Team: Top 12 eligible boys and top 12 eligible girls in the Polo Golf Rankings
Second Team: Next 12 eligible boys and next 12 eligible girls in the Polo Golf Rankings
Honorable Mention: Next 24 eligible boys and next 24 eligible girls in the Polo Golf Rankings

The Polo Golf Rankings year begins with the Polo Golf Junior Classic and concludes with the PING Invitational.

Kristen Gillman Honored At Spanish Oaks

Flat screen televisions replayed the final match of the 2014 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship while friends, family, teammates and members of the Austin golfing community watched Kristen Gillman win the final match and claim the title.  The occasion occurred Sunday night at Spanish Oaks Country Club as friends, led by Jim Lay, gathered in honor of Kristen Gillman to celebrate her 2014 golfing accomplishments.  Lay said “I felt like Austin needed to acknowledge Kristen’s tremendous accomplishments over the past year and I am pleased to have the opportunity to arrange this occasion”.

Daniel Porter, who is the primary investor in Spanish Oaks, said he was delighted to be able to provide the venue for the celebration and had fun visiting with all the folks that participated in the event.  Shown here with Lisa Allen and his wife, they enjoyed visiting about golf and mutual friends in Corpus Christi.   Porter, who was an accomplished amateur golfer in earlier years and a former winner of the Harvey Penick Invitational, said he doesn’t play as much golf as he used to but still follows amateur golf and does what he can to support it.

Nub Donaldson, a long time supporter of amateur and junior golf in Austin and a USGA rules official, had the opportunity to recount Gillman’s achievements in 2014.

He did an excellent job of relaying information about her season and how difficult it is to win a USGA title.     Beside winning the U.S. Amateur,  numerous high school and junior tournaments,  Gillman won the 2014 PGA Junior Championship by 11 shots and set a new scoring record for the event.

Gillman is currently ranked the second best amateur in the Polo Rankings and 12th in the World Amateur Golf Rankings.  Gillman, along with Tom Kite, are the only two Austin golfers have won USGA championships.  Kite won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in 1992.

Gillman posed for a photo with Eric Henson, golf coach at Lake Travis High School where Gillman is a sophomore on the girls golf team.   Henson, who played 0n the 2014 Hannon Cup and Rudy’s Cup teams, is an excellent player himself and was able to provide some perspective on Gillman’s season and her character in general.   His description reaffirmed how level headed Gillman is and credited her mental toughness as one of her primary strengths.

When she was asked how she defined mental toughness Gillman said “I just don’t get to excited about things and keep doing my best regardless of whether things are going good or bad.”

Gillman GaskampThe mood was festive and it was obvious that her teammates and other junior golfers from the Austin area were enjoying the occasion and were supportive of each others efforts.  One funny moment occurred when Gillman was seated at a table and a cake with lighted candles was brought out.  Courtney Gaskamp, on the right in this picture, was surprised and delighted when she was presented the cake for her 16th birthday.  She had assumed it was for Gillman as part of the evening’s celebration.   Gillman, who won the U.S. Women’s Amateur at age 16, has now turned 17.

Lisa Allen, Franco Melhado, Randy Reynolds

As an example of the support for junior golfers that Austin provides, Randy Reynolds brought Franco Melhado to the occasion so he could experience another aspect of the Austin golfing community.  Reynolds has introduced Franco to the game of golf and takes him to practice and play on a regular basis.  Franco won his first tournament this season.  Way to go Franco.

Reynolds is to be congratulated on his support of amateur golf in Austin.  He along with Steve Paterson, Robert Evans, Vince Brunsen, and Gene Black among others, created Austin Amateur Golf and the Austin side of the Rudy’s I-35 Cup.

Congratulations to Kristen Gillman, all her friends and family and supporters of amateur golf in Austin.

Austin Wins Rudy’s I-35 Cup

austin rudy's team 2014Austin defeated San Antonio to win the Rudy’s I-35 Cup by a 17-11 margin in a Ryder Cup style competition at Ram Rock Golf Course in Horseshoe Bay.   Shown here are Captain Dean Lundquist and Randy Reynolds holding the trophy along with the Austin team members. Randy Reynolds has been the driving force organizing the competition on the Austin side.  This victory marks the first time Austin has won the Cup in six years of competition.  San Antonio has won four titles and retaining the cup a fifth year after a competition ended in a tie.

See the results of the foursomes, four ball and singles matches at this link.

Each team is composed of 14 players that qualify to play in the event by competing in a year long schedule of events.  Many players build their competition calendar so they will have a chance to qualify for the Rudy’s Cup competition.

Robert Evans made a birdie putt on the eighteenth hole of his match to win one up and clinch the cup for the Austin team.  There were several matches still in progress and as they unfolded Austin supplemented it’s lead.

Naturally, the Austin team was excited about the victory and celebrated with the traditional shower of champagne.  Randy Reynolds is shown here giving Captain Dean Lundquist a liberal dose of the bubbly suds while other members of the team watch on in amusement and celebration.DSCN9533

 

DSCN9515Jay Reynold, his caddy, and Peach Reynolds are shown below celebrating the victory.  Jay and Peach both won their singles matches and also contributed a point playing together as a team on Saturday.  Pretty nice father and son combination.  Jay returned to amateur golf after playing professionally for several years.  He is a welcome addition to the Austin team.

DSCN9517Steve Paterson received congratulations from Chris Hartenstein after Paterson holed a birdie putt on the last hole to defeat Trey Hallmark of San Antonio.  The final birdie seemed a fitting way to end the day for the Austin team.  Paterson was named the Austin Player of the Year for winning the overall and mid-amateur division of the season long points race in Austin.   Hartenstein won the senior category.

Opening Ceremonies

Perhaps the most important component of the Rudy’s I-35 cup is a fund raising scramble called the “Rivalry Before The Matches”.  It takes place on Friday prior to the opening ceremony and has raised approximately $300,000 over the course of six years.  The funds go to charities in Austin and San Antonio.  Winners of the Rivalary Before The Matches are announced at the formal opening ceremonies on Friday night.

During the opening ceremonies, the teams are introduced and a guest speaker gives a brief talk.  This year, UT Golf Coach John Fields spoke about winning the national championship a couple of years ago and how difficult it is to accomplish that feat.  He also shared some stories about how some of the players on the UT team approached match play.  He specifically mentioned Jordon Speith, who approached the first tee in a mind set of being two down to insure he was ready to play from the first tee shot until the match was settled.

DSCN9472Players and their wives enjoyed some Bar-B-Que from Rudy’s and the opportunity to meet the players on the opposing team.  Shown here are David Backus along with Matt and Amy Werneke.

Werneke had some highlights in the fourball matches when he made a hole in one on the difficult par three eighth hole and then made eagle on the par five ninth.  He played two holes in four shots.  That doesn’t happen very often.

The Matches

The formal matches started bright and early on Saturday morning with cool temperatures and a breeze that increased as the day wore on, providing the players with an additional challenge on an already difficult golf course.

The teams gathered for a team picture at 7:00 am before heading to the range and the course for the matches.DSCN9479  Shown here is Austin in blue and San Antonio in red as they pose for the picture.

Banter on the range prior to teeing off was lighthearted and fun and everyone enjoyed both the weather and the chance to play in the competition.

Players hit balls into a driving range where deer wandering around in the early morning.  Either the players were not on top form or the deer were accustomed to flying golf balls because they never seemed to mind or notice the misguided missiles being fired in their direction.

After play on Saturday, the players signed programs and flags as part of their official duties while the captains pondered over the pairings for the singles matches.DSCN9487

As the captains labored over their picks for the singles matches,  the players gave their input to the process.

Consideration is given to who was playing well and what the order of players should be going out the next morning.

DSCN9500Shown here is the Austin Captain, Dean Lundquist, along with team members awaiting the announcement of a San Antonio pick for singles matches.  As one team names a player the opposing team announces who they will play.  The process alternates between teams until all the matches are scheduled.  As the names are announced they are posted on a board and as can be expected, they draw comment from both teams.

DSCN9507Players from both teams have a lot of fun with this because they have friendships with players on the opposing teams so there is quite a bit of banter that takes place.

DSCN9501

 

San Antonio Captain Pat McMahan is steated here with Ed Sanchez and Zan Terry as they watch the players names being posted for the singles matches.

Summary

All in all, the Rudy’s I-35 Cup has provided a stronger bond between the amateurs players of Austin and San Antonio, provided substantial funds for charities in both cities, increased interest in amateur golf in both cities and allowed players to compete in a quality event.  Hats off to Pat McMahan and Randy Renolds for creating the event and to all the players, volunteers, sponsors and participants for a job well done.
