Mark Healer and Woody Englander are not East Texas natives, but they love visiting Crown Colony. The duo won their third Temple Cup crown on Sunday. Thanks to a great first round and a solid second round, the champs ran away on Sunday.
"You don't think about the lead until the final nine holes," Healers says. "Then you just try to make some pars, a couple of birdies."
Finishing four under par in the final round, Healer and Englander shot 13 under par for the tournament.
Lufkin's Gary Ivins and Crockett's Brad Knox shot 71 on the final day. That was good enough for a third place tie. Ivins and Knox could never match their great opening round of 64.
HOLE IN ONE
Al Fields didn't bring home the cup, but he is taking home a truck. Fields hit his first career hole in one on the Par three 17th hole. Joe Loving of Loving Toyota has offered a truck for years to the first person to hit one during the Temple Cup. Fields became the first to do so. Fields says he didn't even see the ball go into the hole.
