WILLOW PARK – Tarleton Athletics’ 29th Annual Plowboy Shootout presented by First Financial Bank saw a record number of attendees for the third consecutive year as 269 Texan fans enjoyed a round of golf at Squaw Creek Golf Course Friday.

“I can’t say enough about the wonderful support of our fans,” said Senior Associate Athletic Director Troy Jones. “Our Texan Club and the athletics staff worked incredibly hard to give these fans a wonderful and safe day out on the course. The support system for Tarleton State University’s athletic programs and student-athletes will be a big part of making sure we continue our success at the NCAA Division I level.”

In addition to the record-setting number of attendees, the Plowboy Shootout featured 247 hole and hall of fame sponsorships. All proceeds from the event go directly to the Tarleton Athletics Scholarship fund.

Special safety features were used throughout the day. The course encouraged social distancing and masks while door prizes were distributed through a contactless setting. Lunch was provided in individual containers to maintain a safe distance for all fans. Carts were also completely sanitized between flights. The entire event followed all course safety protocols that were put in place.

The teams competed in a four-person scramble and had the chance to win prizes for ‘Longest Drive’, ‘Closest to the Pin’, and a hole-in-one shot for a chance to win a new car.

The top three teams were awarded prizes for their victory. The second and third place teams were determined by a scorecard playoff. The winner of the ‘Longest Drive’ was Spencer Hodge (morning) and Scarlett Eaton (afternoon) while Charlie Stenholm won the ‘Closest to the Pin’ award. The winning teams are as follows:
