2023 Cypress Creek Golf Tournament Results

[read_time]

Cypress Creek Golf Club hosted the Arkansas Chapter’s Seventh event of the 2023 season. 42 Players representing Chapters from Arkansas, Tulsa, and Memphis would make the trip to Cabot, AR., to battle it out to claim the title of Champion. We started the day with an hour delay due to the pop-up thunderstorm. To keep our players safe, we waited until the lightning moved out over the area to start. After the storm cleared, we had an abundance of sunshine and humidity. We would see some great score produced on this Kevin Tucker designed Golf Course. 

In Division 1 

The Division 1 players would bring some great competition as Blaine Chambers of Alma, AR. would jump out in the lead as he made the turn shooting even par, with Luke Smith of Covington, TN. and Garrett Bagwell of Beebe, AR. Hot on his heels. As Division on played the inward nine it would be Luke Smith’s EAGLE on #18 that would notch him the win over Blaine Chambers. Luke Smith would become the Division 1 Champion at Cypress posting a final score of 1 under 71. Blaine Chambers would take second place posting a total score of 73. Garrett Bagwell would finish in 3rd place posting a final score of 78. 

In Division 2 

LR Gardner of Hot Springs, AR. and Kevin Eggleston of Vilonia, AR. would find themselves in a shootout as the made the turn both shooting a front nine total of 39 with Kendall Price on their heels just 2 shots behind them. Ultimately it would be Kevin Eggleston’s one over par back nine that would give him a victory at his first APT appearance. Kevin Eggleston would become the Division 2 Champion at Cypress Cree posting a total score of 76. LR Gardner would finish in second place posting a total score of 77. Kendall Price would finish in third place posting a total score of 86. 

In Division3 

Brad Bettis of Royal, AR. Would find himself on top of the leaderboard early in Division 2 with a birdie on #1 and #5 shooting even par on his outward nine. That didn’t stop the rest of Division 3 from trying to chase him down on the inward nine holes. It was ultimately those birdies on the front nine that would clinch Bettis’s Victory. Brad Bettis would become the Division 3 Champion at Cypress Creek posting a total score of 80. Kevin Brown of Hernando, MS would finish in second place posting a total score of 83. Kirby Rogers of Muldrow, OK. Would finish in a tie for third place with Matt Kinsinger of Pearcy, AR. both men posting a total score of 84. 

In Division 4 

Cory Medley of Joiner, AR would find himself leading Division 4 by two shots as Division 4 made the turn. But Eddie Richmond of Little Rock, AR. wasn’t letting up sitting just two back of Medley. As Division 4 played the inward nine holes. Jeff Corder’s back nine score of 41 would just fall shy of Medley. Cory Medley would become the Champion at Cypress Creek posting a total score of 85. Jeff Corder of Hot Springs, AR. would finish in second place posting a total score of 86. Jay Williams of Van Buren, AR would finish in third place posting a total score of 87. 

In Division 5 

Jerry Crabtree of Van Buren, AR. would take the lead by two shots after playing the outward nine holes. Tony Wright of Sherwood, AR. and Jim Haslauer of Little Rock, AR were not backing off.
