Local Golf Pro Shoots Below His Age
Last week, David Lundstrom, playing and teaching golf pro at The Club At Colony Creek, took second place at the Southern Texas PGA Senior Tourney at Walden on Lake Conroe.
What made that big was that the 71-year-old Lundstrom took second by shooting a two-under 70, one shot under his age. What makes that even bigger is that David is a two-time cancer survivor. The week before that, he tied for first at a Southern Texas PGA event in Austin. This former PGA tour and Champions tour pro is now gearing up to play in the Southern Texas PGA championship here later this month. I asked David what it’s like to shoot lower than his age and do it in a pro tournament. “It’s like a lot of things. You have to have good fortune, even though I’ve had health problems that got fixed up. The good Lord didn’t give me a lot of talent but he did bless me with a lot of determination. That’s what has gotten me through life. I’m a little fighter and I keep on working. I’m a lucky guy.”
David Lundstrom will play in the 50th Southern Texas PGA championship at Victoria Country Club starting August 27.
ST. LOUIS (AP) – Gary Woodland started slowly before taking the first-round lead at the PGA Championship in St. Louis.
He fired a 6-under 64 that gives him a one-stroke lead over Rickie Fowler. Woodland was 1-over before making birdie at the par-5 eighth. He also birdied the next hole and added five more on the back nine to pass Fowler, who emerged as the early leader.
Brandon Stone and Zach Johnson are two shot back and one ahead of world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, who was tied atop the leaderboard before faltering late in his round.
Tiger Woods is six off the pace following an even-par 70.
Meanwhile, Golfweek is reporting the PGA of America is trying to regain control of computer servers that have kept officials from accessing files for the PGA Championship.
The magazine says on its website that PGA staff members discovered their systems had been compromised when attempts to access files generated a message that the network had been penetrated and that any attempt to break the encryption could cause files to be lost.
