The 2014 State Father-Son Championship, conducted by the Texas Golf Association, is scheduled to be played July 11-13 at Boot Ranch in Fredericksburg. 

Opened in May 2006, Boot Ranch was designed by 14-time PGA Tour winner Hal Sutton who expertly routed the course through the beautiful Hill Country terrain. He also made full use of natural water features and native areas, resulting in a unique layout that tests every part of a player’s game.  

A total of 88 teams are entered in this year’s event, a popular summer tradition for many families.

To better accommodate players of all ages and skill levels teams are assigned to one of five flights based on their combined handicap indexes as of July 1, 2014.

The Championship Flight consists of 40 teams with the lowest combined handicap indexes and will play four-ball stroke play in the first two rounds. After 36 holes the low 20 teams (and ties) continue on in the Championship Flight and will play combined score (individual stroke play using both players scores) in the final round. The three-day total is the team’s score for the championship.

Teams not making the 36 hole cut in the Championship Flight will compete in the President’s Flight and play another round of four-ball stroke play. The format for all other flights is 54 hole net four-ball stroke play.

The 2014 starting field features three former State Father-Son champions. They are Randy and Hunter Rawls of Lubbock (2012), Craig and Jordan Rumora of Houston (2010), and Steve and Brett Gill of Sugar Land (2005, 2006 and 2009).

Tee-times and parings for the first two rounds are posted on the Texas Golf Association’s web site ( Live scoring updates and daily recaps will be available once the action gets underway at Boot Ranch. For additional information please call the TGA office at (214) 468-8942.
