Cliff Matthews Wins Again on
PPA Texas Tour

28 September 2002 - Webster, TX -  The Texas Putting tour held it's last state qualifier of the year at the Webster Texas Putt-Putt. The players new this would be a tight competition going in as the #3 course at Webster was not going to yield any really low scores. This was born out after the first round as David Lynch held the lead with an 8-under 28 but was followed by four players at 29 and another 4 at 30.

Cliff Matthews took the lead after a second round 9 under. This gave him a one stroke lead over Lee Messinger and two over Wade Sahmel. Another 9 under in the last round gave Cliff the win and kept his streak of winning in tact. Cliff had not lost since the doubles event during the Week of Nationals. State spots went to Byron Kirby, Joel Baker and Rodney Phillips.

The amateur division would come down to a three way playoff between Mickey DeLucca of Louisiana, Danny Hole of Oklahoma and Jason Sheffield of Texas. Danny Hole managed to come out on top in a tight competition that came down to last few holes. State Spots went to Danny, Jason and James Taylor.
