DALLAS (SMU) - The SMU Mustangs players and coaching staff hosted a successful 2013 Payne Stewart Cup at the Dallas Country Club on Monday. The day featured a full 18 holes of golf and was capped off by a cocktail reception and dinner for all participants.
AT&T sponsored the event that hosted 100 players. That group included local donors, PGA professionals, top PGA club pros, SMU golf alumni and all current Mustangs players. PGA stars Hunter Mahan (five PGA wins, four top-10s in majors), Justin Leonard (1997 Open Championship winner), John Rollins (three PGA wins) and Colt Knost (SMU graduate, 2007) all competed.
The event was run and organized by SMU Head Coach Josh Gregory and Assistant Coach Jason Enloe, with help from Billy Harris (host professional), Bob Crews (chairman of the 2013 Payne Stewart Cup), Ron Spears (AT&T Executive Vice President) and the Payne Stewart Cup committee.
Gregory was excited to show the participants the progress the team has made, and the direction the team is going in.
"It's important for former players and donors to see what we're doing here," Gregory said. "It's also important for our current players to realize what came before them."
The evening concluded with a cocktail reception and dinner at the Dallas Country Club featuring guest speaker Bobby Clampett, a golf analyst for CBS Sports who competed on the PGA Tour from 1980-1995.
