OC golf coach accepted to play in prestigious senior tournament
OKLAHOMA CITY (April 8, 2013) – Oklahoma Christian women’s golf coach Greg Lynn has been accepted into the field for the Trans-Mississippi Senior Championship, a top amateur tournament for senior players.
The 13th annual event is set for May 21-23 at The Gallery Golf Club in Marana, Ariz. The par-72, 6,678-yard course previously has hosted the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, one of the top match-play events in the world.
“This is a top-level tournament and I’m honored that I’ll get to play in it,” Lynn said.
The 54-hole Trans-Miss Senior Championship will feature a field of 144 players, split into three divisions. The event is run by the Trans-Mississippi Golf Association, which was established in 1901 and is one of the oldest golf associations in the U.S.
The event is open to male amateur golfers who are 55 or older, have a U.S. Golf Association handicap index of 4.0 or less and are a member of a Trans-Miss member club.
It’s not the first time Lynn, 64, has played in a national-level senior golf event. In 2011, he qualified for the U.S. Senior Amateur tournament.
