The Lubbock Country Club By Buster will take place this weekend with an intrigue that is not present in most years.
Seminole golfer Brady Shivers will go for a calendar year slam of Lubbock’s major partnerships, a feat last achieved in 2012. Shivers won the Reese Memorial Day Partnership and Hillcrest Swinger with his playing partner Michael Pruitt and the LakeRidge Stampede with Kale Hughes.
The former Midland College and University of Houston player will look to win with Thumper Galyean when he leaves at 12:45 p.m. Thursday. The Par Buster, a three-player low ball staged over three days, continues through Saturday.
The last player to win the annual showcase events at Reese, Hillcrest, LakeRidge and Lubbock Country Club in the same year was Scott Rundell in 2012. Rundell won the Reese partnership with Michael Pruitt, the Swinger and the Par Buster with David Bolen and the Stampede with Ben Clark.
Lubbock’s other major event, the men’s town championship at Meadowbrook, is the only individual tournament.
In order for Shivers to match Rundell’s race, he and Galyean will need to conquer an 18-team championship flight. Nine of the teams have at least one player who has won a major city tournament.
Shivers and Pruitt won by eight to Reese over Matt Nolasco and Jason Toelle in an 18-team championship steal with a number of recent college players and a few former pros.
In June at Hillcrest, Austin’s Alex Ellis and Cory Bull shot a 57 in the second round for the 36-hole lead, but Shivers and Pruitt rallied four early in the final round to win. Bull and Ellis are in the quartet with Shivers and Galyean to start Par Buster.
Last month at LakeRidge, Jason Staggs and two-time Men’s City champion Shaun Melville led the 18- and 36-hole course, but Shivers and Hughes came back three strokes as they started the final round to win the playoffs. It was Shivers’ eighth major title since he started playing Lubbock in 2017.
