Alabama’s team of Matt Johnson, Matt Gourgeot and Steve Hudson begin play Tuesday in the USGA Men’s State Team Championship at French Lick Resort (Pete Dye Course) in French Lick, Ind.
Their best two rounds count each day of three days of stroke play competition against teams from all 50 states plus Puerto Rico.
Hudson, who grew up in Jasper and lives in Birmingham, has won four state titles (two State Mid-Amateurs and two State Seniors) in the last five years and has been named Alabama Golf Association Player of the Year three times.
Dothan’s Johnson has also won a State Mid-Amateur, while Gourgeot, who is from Decatur and played golf for the University of North Alabama, qualified for this year’s U.S. Mid-Amateur.
