2023 Meadowbrook Golf Tournament Results

[read_time]

The APT Tulsa Chapter rolled into Meadowbrook Country Club in Tulsa Oklahoma on Saturday to the next to last point’s event of the 2023 season.  What was forecast to be a scorching Saturday afternoon with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees, quickly became a rain fest as Mother Nature looked to add more character to an already spicy Meadowbrook Country Club layout.  The sold-out field, originally set at 64 players saw 58 of those scramble for what raingear they had available.  Fortunately, Mother Nature slowed enough and Division 1 got things rolling.  Division 1 brought some new faces to the field and along with them came a nice group of followers to enjoy what turned out to be a fierce battle for the top prize. 

Division 1 Playing in just his second APT event and first in Tulsa, former Indiana resident Chris Wilson returned to his home state to test the waters in Tulsa.  Impressive newcomer Kyle Peterson of Broken Arrow did his best to pull off his first win in his first try but a birdie putt on 18 narrowly slid by the hole.  Peterson and his entourage watched as Wilson, playing in the group behind, made bogey sending the two players into a playoff.  A large group of onlookers followed the pair as anxious moments for both players, watched with each missing the opportunity to win.  Finally on the 5th playoff hole, #17, par 3 at Meadowbrook, Wilson hit what was surely the shot of the day as his tee shot missed bad left, leaving him with a difficult 30 yard punch under an old ageless oak tree and a moat of thick Bermuda grass fronting the downhill sloping green.  Peterson and the now large contingent of bystanders watched in amazement as Wilson’s bullet like punch was slowed almost perfectly by the rough and trickled onto the green to within 10 feet of the hole for his par.  Wilson then watched as Kyle Peterson’s chip from the front fringe of the long green came up about 12 feet short.  Peterson’s putt just scooted by the hole and left Wilson with the chance to make his par and secure his first APT victory.  Wilson’s putt from above the cup was center cut and both players showed great sportsmanship after going a long five holes of sudden death.  Peterson, who played great the entire day, settled for second and Brennan Montgomery, who just missed out on the playoff after finding water on 18, settled for third. 

Division 2 “Big Sexy” Josh Linn, made the move from Muscogee to Jenks and played his way to his third victory of the season, increasing his lead in the Player of the Year standings for Division 2.  Alex Shearer, also of Jenks, made it an all Jenks kinda day by finishing up one shot back of Linn to take home the second-place money.  APT Arkansas player and D2 POY leader, Kendall Price rounded out the podium, 3 shots back of Linn. 

Division 3 In a day filled with plenty of drama, beginning with the morning weather change, Division 3 saw a three-man playoff take to the 15th hole to settle the score.  Bruce Yi of Edmond Oklahoma, picked up his second APT win at Meadowbrook to go along with the inaugural event at Cherokee Hills, by gracefully nipping a delicate chip down to about a foot for par.  Yi watched as both Chris Meyers and Kirby Rogers missed on their respective par putts to give the hard-fought victory to Yi.  Mannford Oklahoma’s Dalton Farrow, closed with a fabulous back side 39 but fell one shot short of making the playoff. 

Division 4 In still yet another playoff, Khurram Pervaiz, who had been sidelined for weeks with a work commitment, held off a determined Bill Casey on the back nine to claim his maiden victory with APT Tulsa Chapter and claim the beautiful Sterling Glass Crystal Decanter trophy.  Casey, who has been knocking on Victories door over the past few events, saw his chance for the win go away with an awry tee shot on the first playoff hole.  Casey settled for second and took consolation by picking up some skin money along the way. 

Division 5 Brodey Young of Tuttle, put up a 6 over 43 on the back nine to pull away from the rest of the D5 field and take home Meadowbrook's top honor.  Jerry Crabtree of Fort Smith Arkansas and Zach Sparkman of Tulsa split second place with Division 5 points leader Trip Montgomery coming home fourth. 

Senior Net. Kirby Rogers of Fort Smith who placed 2nd through the D3 playoff, came away with top honors in Senior Net by outlasting Mike Burgin of APT Dallas/Fort Worth by a single shot.  D2’s Joel Lake finished third. 

APT Tulsa takes 3 weeks off before moving over to Cushing Oklahoma’s Perry Maxwell designed Buffalo Rock Golf and Venue.  This event will mark the final single day tournament in the 2023 season before heading off to the Local Tour Finals at the fabulous Shangri-La Resort in Grove Oklahoma on September 9th and 10th.  All roads lead to Shangri-La and the crowning of our very first group of champions.  Follow our Facebook page or visit the APT website at amateurplayerstour.com for additional information.
