Jay Reynold Captures Bluebonnet Cup – Peach Reynolds and Jerry Thorn Tie for Senior Division Title

The Bluebonnet Cup was held at Bluebonnet Hills Golf Club on Saturday and Sunday under clear skies and a 12-15 mph north wind that brought lower humidity and pleasant playing conditions that were a bit challenging in the first round.  The second round provided excellent scoring conditions with the wind down slightly and clear blue skies.

Dylan Lemke, the General Manager and Head Golf Professional at Bluebonnet was kind enough to provide the following recap of the final round.

“The final round of the cup was very interesting to watch. Especially the back 9.  Here is a quick recap.

Gene Black posted a final round 67 to finish at -5 for the tournament. Cyrus Turner had a 2 shot lead over Jay Reynolds heading into the 16th hole. Jay hit a nice approach to roughly 6 feet to birdie 16 while Cyrus made par.

The 17th hole saw Jay make an excellent par putt and Cyrus miss an 8 ft. birdie opportunity to extend the lead back to 2. Jays’ tee shot on the 18th hole found the green about 8 feet away from the pin. Cyrus’ tee shot found the green side bunker in which he was short sided to the front left hole location. He played a nice bunker shot and left himself about a 10 ft. putt for birdie in which his ball slide just past the cup which cleared the stage for Jay, whom drained his 8 ft putt for eagle to finish the day with a 67 and which the tournament by 1 shot at -7.”  Thanks Dylan..
