Oxford Golf would like to congratulate John Peterson for winning his first professional golf tournament over the weekend. Peterson, who was the 2011 individual NCAA Champion, won the Adams Pro Golf Tour Series' Coca-Cola Wal-Mart Open in an intense, sudden death playoff.
Locked in a three-way tie at -15 under par after the regular play, six extra holes had to be added in order for Peterson to claim the victory. In what he described as a “marathon, a test of patience and will to get it done,” in an article on The Town Talk, Peterson really demonstrated his will to succeed as he battled out for the win.
Oxford Golf prides itself on finding the best up and coming talent in the nation and Peterson is an athlete we look forward to watching over the upcoming years. His drive, motivation and confidence on the course will help propel him to greater success in his career. While his first victory is certainly going to be a memory forever, we predict that there will be more victories coming for Peterson in 2012.
Also playing well at the Adams Open was Oxford Golf ambassador Andrew Loupe. Loupe finished 5th in the tournament, coming in -12 under par at the end of regular play. Loupe’s next tournament will be at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open, Thursday Mar 22 – Sunday Mar 25, 2012. We’ll be watching his performance all day and will keep everyone updated on his scores on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Best of luck to these two outstanding players for the rest of the year!
