Nearly 100 Members at Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers Branch, Texas, were at the club yesterday to watch 20-year-old golfer Jordan Spieth play his final round of the Masters at Augusta National. Spieth grew up playing golf at Brookhaven and his parents are still Members.
Spieth was tied for the lead with Bubba Watson at 5 under going into fourth round and, though Watson went on to win the green jacket – his second in three years – Spieth held his own, leading by two strokes after seven holes. Had he won, Spieth would have been the youngest player to ever win the Masters.
It wasn’t just the Members who were interested in Spieth’s play – several local news shows were on hand at Brookhaven to cover the club’s support and each one interviewed Teaching Instructor Joey Anders, who began working with Spieth when he was 8 years old and continued working with him until he was 13.
This won’t be the last time a crowd comes to the club to support Spieth as he competes. No doubt, he has a long career ahead of him and the Members and staff at Brookhaven will be proudly cheering him on through every par, birdy, bogey and eagle along the way.
Today the Masters Tournament officially tees off at Augusta National in Augusta, Georgia! Even though Tiger Woods and the famous 17th hole Eisenhower Tree won’t be there, the tournament still promises a lot of drama. Star veterans are returning like Roy McIlroy, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson are returning, but this year a record 24 Masters rookies will begin play, including Brookhaven Country Club’s Jordan Spieth. We'll see what happens! You can follow the tournament leader board here.
Aside from this morning's exciting tee-off, Augusta also hosted fun junior festivities earlier this week!
Leo Cheng, an 11-year-old representing Porter Valley Country Club, holed a 6-footer on the 18th hole to win his age bracket in the inaugural Drive, Chip and Putt competition! Leo's trophy was presented by Masters Champion Adam Scott.
Falling behind Cheng, Brookhaven Country Club’s Kyle Cox placed fourth in the Drive, Chip and Putt competition. We are so proud of our young Members and wish them great future success!
Happy Masters Week everyone!
Members of Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers Branch, TX are starting to become quite familiar with holes-in-one. Last week, Christine Donnelly (pictured below, left) sunk a hole-in-one on the President's Course's 145 yard No. 7, and just moments later, Christa Aleshire (pictured below, right) followed up with one of her own from the 105 yard No. 3, also on the President's Course.
The two were ecstatic as they both achieved something every golfer strives for. However, Aleshire was celebrating for a slightly different reason. Just seven days earlier, she aced the same hole.
3 holes-in-one on the same course in one weeks time? You could say Brookhaven is proud of their members.
