Acura ClubCorp Champions Classic
Outplaying 79 other teams from more than 60 clubs, Oak Tree Country Club in Edmond, Okla., topped the leaderboard at the 2013 Acura ClubCorp Champions Classic at the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas, last September. Oak Tree, which joined the ClubCorp family of clubs last spring, made its first appearance at the 54-hole tournament. Using the event's new Shamble Quota format, in which teams earn points with the goal of a high score, the victors scored +61 over their quota to edge out Shadowridge Golf Club in Vista, Calif., by one point. Golf great Greg Norman kicked off the weekend with a bit of star quality when he spoke at the welcome reception. During a Q-and-A session, he shared with the crowd that he never played rounds of golf between tournaments; he only practiced his technique. Throughout the weekend in contests such as closest-to-the-pin, 44 teams won prizes such as Maui Jim sunglasses and Greg Norman apparel.
