Written by Kevin LeDuc

BEAUMONT:  Sam Butler went wire to wire for a 10 stroke victory at the league finals. Taking a 3 shot lead into the second day of the 36 day tournament he stretched the lead to double digits leading by 8. After reaching 4 under through hole 12 he gave a few strokes back but was still able to maintain a double digit lead. He is the first Big 8 player to repeat since current professional Aaron Wise did in 2014.  Read the 2016 story.

He shot even par 72 for both rounds. Joel Gonsier also fired a second round 77 to climb the leader board into 8th and earn all league honors. Jake Flaczinski also fired a second day score of 77 to finish in 9th.
