Stefani wins Texas State Open in Record Fashion

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Shawn Stefani of Baytown, Texas captured the 41st Chesapeake Energy Texas State Open with rounds of 69-65-60-65 for a four-round total of 21-under par, 259.  

With solid rounds of golf all week, Stefani made six birdies and one bogey during the final round to capture the Championship.

Stefani's overall total is the lowest four-day total for the Texas State Open since the Championship moved to The Cascades Club in 2006. 

The Texas State Open low total came in 2005 when Kelly Grunewald shot a 22-under par at White Bluff Resort (New Course) in Whitney, Texas. 

This was Stefani's fifth year to compete in the Texas State Open. 

"To come here year after year and be in contention," said Stefani, "It feels good to finally hold this trophy, the same one so many great players have held. It is awesome."

Prior to his victory today, his best finish came in 2008 when he tied for second shooting 12-under par, finishing two shots behind the 2008 champion, Martin Piller.  

Stefani will take home a $25,000.00 check for his first place win.

Palestine's Jeremy Frye (-7) and Flint's Sean Sciba (-5) were the only East Texans in the Top-15.

    Leading the offense is TCU transfer quarterback Brennen Wooten, along with Nicholas Gerber who is fresh off of setting the Texas high school single-season records for passing yards (5,617) and touchdowns (77).  There is no reason TJC shouldn't reach the end-zone.  "Brennen Wooten came in here as a big leader, coaching everybody up.
