Andrew Goodman won the Red River Team Challenge for an unprecedented third consecutive year, leading a stacked Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour squad to a resounding victory over their counterparts from the Texas Junior Golf Tour over two days of weekend competition at Dornick Hills Country Club in Ardmore.

Champion Andrew Goodman

Goodman, a University of Oklahoma commit from Norman, shot rounds of 66-71 to finish at 3-under on the par-70 Dornick Hills layout, one of the first courses designed by legendary architect Perry Maxwell. He finished five shots ahead of Michael Senn of Rogers, Ark., Ryder Cowan of Edmond and Ben Stoller of Owasso as Oklahoma swept the top four spots. The boys and girls teams are broken into four-person teams and Oklahoma won the team competition 18.5 to 9.5.

In the girls competition, Alexa Saldeno of Mexico shot a second-round 68 to roll to a six-shot victory over a trio of players, including Lily Whitley of Edmond (76-71), who tied for second at 147. Raychel Nelke of Pocola took fifth at 148 (75-73), while Maddi Kamas of Kingfisher (72-77) and Kate Tilma of Wichita (74-75) tied for sixth at 149 and Reagan Chaney of Ardmore was seventh at 151 (74-77).

It was a bittersweet day for Morri Rose, director of the OJGT, as he watched many of his proteges play their final event on the tour.

“It was really impressive to watch Andrew with for the third time in a row,” Rose said. “No one has ever come close to that in the 16 years we’ve been doing this.”

With other top-10 finishes from Jake Hopper of Norman, Tres Hills of Elk City, Dylan Teeter of Bixby, Buddy Wehrli of Tulsa, Shane Herlihy of Edmond and Parker Sands of Edmond, the Oklahoma boys in particular overwhelmed their Texas counterparts. See complete results below.

The Red River Challenge concludes the OJGT season, one in which demand for play reached an all-time high with each event filling up more than a month in advance. Rose credited the OJGT families with doing all they could to look out for each other in the pandemic.

“Anyone who came down with the virus, the families would hold them out and no one played who had recently tested positive,” Rose said. “They all made sure their kids had tested negative and they were looking out for the other kids and families. Every tournament sold out at least a month in advance. Golf was booming and of course the kids all missed their high school seasons last spring, so there was a great demand for the competition.”
