April 29, 2015 - Feature Player and Club
This weeks feature player is Carson Butler of Clinton, MS. Carson is the son of Cary D. Butler and is probably one of our most upbeat, cheerful players we have in our field. If you have never played with Carson he is always happy and smiling no matter what he shoots, but you know when he is having a good day because there will be a lot of fist pumps being thrown in the air.
Carson played in 13 of our events this year and out of those 13 got 8 in the Top 3 with 1 of them being a win at the Sonny Andrews Invitational at Cleveland Country Club. The other 5 tournaments he played in were 3 in the Top 5, he came in 6th in the Pros of Tomorrow and got 12th in the Future Tour, but he there was a big field in both of those tournaments, so he did pretty well. Carson also played in both of our Cup Matches. He helped us defeat the Louisiana team and was on the Nicklaus team at the Cup Matches. We love having Carson play in our tournament he is always brings a good atmosphere to the tournament and we always love seeing him play. We wish him luck this year as the first tournament in Junior golf season is quickly approaching.
