Risdon makes historical charge up leaderboard with 12 birdies in a row as Ingram wins North Texas Championship!

Dustin Risdon did something Sunday at The Tribute Golf Club that would have sent Arnie's Army heading for the bunkers! Something never accomplished before in golf tournament history. He birdied 12 holes in a row! The record is 9 on the PGA Tour and 9 on the Nationwide Tour. Heck, in 1984 there were 8 birdies in a row made at an LPGA event. As unbelievable as this sounds, Risdon bogeyed the first, birdied the 2nd, parred the third and bogeyed the fourth hole before reeling off 12 birdies in a row on holes 5 thru 16 that included 2's on all four par 3's before finishing bogey - par for a gross score of 62...only 1 shot from the course record. The +2.7 hcp and former Nationwide Tour player from Canada almost didn't tee it up at all on Sunday, complaining of a hurt wrist. He hit his drive in the water to the right on number 1 and told his cart partner he might have to WD, but he was obviously able to putt, recording just 11 putts during the 12 hole span. However, this was not enough to catch Jason Ingram, who backed up a great round on Saturday with a career round himself on Sunday with a gross score of 68. Jason pulled in around $7000 for his performance. The Tour has only 2 events left this year including the 54 hole Tour Championship that will pay $10,000 to the winner with 44+ players. We hope to see you there because "IF YOU DON'T TEE IT UP YOU CAN'T WIN."
