Samantha Gibbs: Breaking Records

First Tee – Fort Worth alum gave a strong showing at a collegiate event earlier this month! Samantha Gibbs at the recent Vaquero Invitational in McAllen, Texas, March 4-5, where she showed just what girl power means on the golf course!

Samantha, the 2023 FWJGA Girls Champion, dominated with an impressive 12 under total, carding a 68-67-66 for a three round total of 201, finishing 7 strokes ahead of the runner-up. As a freshman, Gibbs broke the Texas A&M Corpus Christi Islanders program record for low round with a 66 and inevitably for 54-hole total with a 201 score. Samantha led the Islanders to a team victory, 9 strokes ahead of second place finishers Abilene Christian University.

Breaking records isn’t unfamiliar to the freshman; she frequently filled the record books in high school at Timber Creek in Keller ISD. With a list of achievements in golf and the classroom, Samantha continues her hard work and dedication to the game and her school work in college.

As a former Junior Advisory Committee President and ACE student, Samantha is a great example of the amazing participants that come out of our First Tee – Fort Worth chapter every year. We wish her luck as she finishes out her first year of college! Shakas up!
