LCM’s Burke wins PGA spring series
Jack Burke continues to rack up the victories on the golf course. One of the biggest by far came this past weekend when the 11 year old LCM fifth grader won the 2014 South Texas PGA Spring Series Golf Championship. At age 11, Jack has accumulated over 70 tournament wins in his career.
The invitation-only event was held at Sugar Creek Country Club in Houston. Jack finished 2-under on day one, and after day two finished in a 3-way tie at even par. On the first playoff hole Jack knocked in a 12-foot birdy to win the championship. The win also earned Jack an invitation to the 2014 Champions Tour Insperity Invitational.
Jack will play in the Junior Pro-Am on April 29 at The Woodlands Country Club in Houston with one of the players on the Champions Tour. Highlights will be featured on the Golf Channel.
