192 Golfers competed in the Annual A.C. January Memorial Day Golf Tournament in Lampasas over the Memorial Day Weekend.
The big win was well deserved, with Lampasas High's Golf Coach, Justin Shulze, winning it all with a three day 206 score. His winning ways were perhaps inspired by his highly competitive High School golf teams over the past few years.
Coming in second was, coincidentally, a former Badger golfer, Stayton Lindeman, who brought in a 208 score. Stayton is a former Badger Golfer, and a former University of Mary Hardin Baylor golfer who now lives in Oklahoma City.
Just behind, in the President's Flite, was Bruce Rawlings of Coppers Cove with a 213. Following him with 2nd in that flite was fellow Cove golfer, Robert Mieras with a 221.
The first and second in the numbered flites are as follows:
1st Flite: Terry Eckermann 228 and Mitch Brown 233
2nd Flite: T.J. McBryde 229 and David Shoemaker 235

Altogether, there were 18 locals that finished “in the money” in the tournament.
How was it, with the bad weather and all? According to Van Berry, manager of the local Hancock Park Golf Course, they only suffered one rain delay. That was on Monday when they had a late start and it wasn't all finished until about 7:30pm last night. It was another successful Memorial Day Tournament.
