One of the most clutch performers in Shootout history proved his mettle once again by winning the inaugural Shootout Wedge Tournament. Two-time Invitational Shootout Champion George Les performed remarkably to win this first-time event, nearly holing his second shot in the finals to secure the victory.
“This type of an event is right up my alley because I love to compete” said George Les. “When others start to get nervous, I get focused. My performance did not surprise me since I always play better when I have pressure and an audience.”
Tournament organizers were thrilled with the response to this new addition to Shootout Saturday and hinted at a bigger and better event in 2013. “I think we saw how much fun an event like this could be” said organizer Ray Shinkle. “We definitely learned a lot and are looking forward to making this a highlight of Shootout Saturday for years to come.”
