27 March 2010 - Killeen, TX - Event two was a separate event and part of our match play series 2010. It produced our 2nd multiple winner of the season and the POY leader in the PPA ranks for 2010's Lee Messinger from Dallas Texas bested David McCollister from Baton Rouge in the finals. Messinger beat Jimmy Clark in his 1st match and then beat 2008 WPT champion Tom Adair to move him to the finals.


Danny Tatum

The runner-ups path to the finals had McCollister beating HOF member Mike Baldoza in round 1. Then had to get by the runner up in the 1st event Rainey Statum. Next David managed to get by 2010 LA Open winner Joe Lea in a match that went to the last hole. Bergesen and Statum won spots in the 1st event and Messenger in the second event.

Danny Tatum of DeRidder, LA loves the match play format for 2010 as he has won 11 matches in a row after losing his 1st match of the season in Webster to Dwain Willett. Tatum had to beat 14-year-old Ty Newcomb in a close match 1up. Then Trevor Lewin of Dallas took Danny to the last hole as well as did Tony Newcomb in the semi finals. The match that had almost as many aces as lead changes had DT and his brother in law Mickey DeLucca in a classic head to head match that went to the last hole in the 36 hole final. Mickey path to the finals had him beating Todd Fox, Greg Cole and Allen Thomas.
