GCAA Summer Series: Frizzell, 10-under, wins at Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club

Norman, Okla.- Henry Frizzell, from Arkansas Tech University, wins the GCAA Summer Series, presented by the John T. Reis Foundation, hosted by Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club.

Frizzell looked to be in trouble on the 16th hole after a miss-hit chip shot onto the green. Nonetheless, Frizzell nailed a deep putt to save par and remain tied for the lead with two holes left.

“I hit a bad chip shot there,” Frizzell said. “It was one of those things where you’re like ‘what do I have to lose?’You gotta step up and hit a putt, and that’s what I did.”

The tournament came down to the 54th hole. Henry Frizzell and Devyn Pappas approached the 18th tee tied at 10-under. Frizzell would hit the green in two-shots and par the hole. Pappas had an opportunity on the 18th green to sink a putt to save par but came up short.

“It was fun out there, being in a shootout,” Frizzell said.

Frizzell, along with Devyn Pappas, from Arkansas State University, Turner Hosch, from University of Oklahoma, and Brandon Shong, from University of New Mexico, will receive an invite to the Series Championship at Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio, Texas
