After a challenging TPC course this past week, the Outlaw Tour moves to a more birdie friendly Southern Dunes layout in Maricopa, AZ at the Ak-Chin Casino / Southern Dunes GC complex.
An Outlaw Tour event was played here back in September where 30 players tees it up and a score of -8 was needed to be one of the Top 10 players to make the cut and after 3 rounds the winner was -21 and all 10 cut survivors were -9 or better !
This week’s event has a couple new players including College phenom (and so-far a bust as a pro) Norman “Panda” Xiong 🐼 – for those that don’t know him, he played 2 years at Oregon where he won many NCAA tournaments as well as the historic Western Amateur, finished 2 in US Am qualifying and in 2018 won both the Jack Nicklaus and Haskins awards as the top collegiate golfer. Turning pro in 2018 he played on some sponsorship exemptions in PGA Tour events with very little success and many MCs. He is back grinding and still just 21 years old so we’ll see what the future hold for Panda.
