Here’s a quick question.

What do the Plainview High School boys and girls golf teams and Jordan Spieth have in common?

The obvious answer would be probably nothing.

However beginning on Saturday, the answer will change to a definite something.

PHS golfers Katie Finley, Addie Norton, and Saxon Ross will be playing as part of Team Oklahoma in the 2017 OJGT/TJGT Red River Shootout which will be held at Dornick Hills Country Club.

The Plainview standouts were among 56 of the best junior golfers in Oklahoma to be chosen to compete in the prestigious tournament, as they will take on the 56 best junior golfers from Texas in a team tournament as well as an individual tournament.

In recent years this tournament has featured the likes of Jordan Spieth, who is now a three-time major winner on the PGA Tour along with being the 2015 FedEx Cup champion.

Patrick Reed has also played in the tournament in recent years for Team Texas, as he now plays on the PGA Tour and the European Tour.

In order to qualify for the tournament in the boys division, a player must be in the top-35 of his age division, while for the girls, you must be in the top-10 of your division.

Finley and Norton haven’t slowed down after being apart of the Lady Indians squad which won the programs second state title in school history this past spring, where Finley claimed the individual state title in the process.

During the summer, Norton and Finley competed in the Lake Hefner Shootout (North) where Norton claimed the overall title, with Finley finishing in sixth place. 

Their Lady Indians teammate Hallie Schultz also competed and placed tied for seventh.

Finley also won the John Conrad Labor Day Classic in Midwest City, where Norton placed tied the seventh at the same tournament. Schultz finished tied for 14th in the same tournament.

Norton also competed in the 2017 OJGT Kickoff Classic and Big I Qualifier where she placed 10th overall in Oklahoma City.

Finley will be a senior this season on the Lady Indians golf team, while Norton will be a junior.

Ross has had a busy summer as well following the Indians state runner-up finish.

Aside from competing in multiple tournaments across Oklahoma, including winning the Battle of Broken Arrow, this won’t be the first prestigious tournament this season for Ross.

Earlier this summer, Ross won the Starburst Junior Golf Classic in Waco, Texas, winning the Open Championship division title after playing on three different courses throughout the tournament. 

He won the title in a sudden death playoff on the first hole.

The senior standout also competed at the US Junior Amateur Qualifier at Dornick Hills, where he finished tied for fifth overall, along with competing at the Texas-Oklahoma Open in Wichita Falls, Texas.

Tee-times for each day of the tournament are scheduled to begin around 8:30 a.m.
