The Houston, Texas Pro Duffers were installed by the Dallas, Texas Chapter of the Pro Duffers USA in 2003. After a round of golf at Lake Windcrest Golf Club in Houston, Sweeney and six of Dallas’s best Duffers shared in fellowship over lunch and officially installed the Houston Chapter as Pro Duffers.
The beginning of the Houston Chapter was two fold in that it was in the minds of two Houstonians simultaneously without either knowing of the other. Well, both were energized to begin a Houston Chapter because they both loved golf and had attended several outings with Pro Duffers. D. J. Blanton, owner of Blanco plumbing in Houston, an avid golfer, found plenty of time to golf and found himself attending tournaments and met Lee Jeffrey in Miami FL. Lee invited him to Little Rock. That began his quest to realize such an organization in Houston.
