Two local golfers won top-medalist honors at Monday's Poteau Pirate Invitational, which took place at both Choctaw Country Club and Wolf Ridge Golf Course.
In the large school division, Poteau's Cody Shore took home top honors as he carded a 70-75—145 to win by seven shots.
“I knew Cody could do this,” Poteau Coach Mike Thomas said. “He's just had problems with finishing the last two or three holes, but he didn't do that on Monday as he shot a 70 up on Wolf Ridge in the first round.”
As for team standings, the Pirates were third with a 621 with rounds of 299 at Wolf Ridge and 322 at Choctaw Country Club. Tulsa Metro Christian won the team title with a 610, followed by Fort Gibson in second (614).
As for other Pirates, Connor Wheat shot a 76-86—162, Jarrett Lowrimore (85-79) and John Scott Sanders (82-82) each shot 164s and Trey Wells carded an 82-86—168.
“Ever since our first tournament, we've been right between 319 and 322 (for team scores),” Thomas said. “We're right close to where we want to be. If we can get our team scores into the 310s, we'll be all right.”
The Poteau junior varsity golfers were there also, finishing with a team score of 410-446—856.
Kendall Peterson had the best tournament for the Pirate JV with a 94-98—-182. John Buckles had a 111-99—210, followed by Lane Robertson (107-131—238) and Connor Bandy (121-118—239). Joel Holstead shot a 118 at Choctaw Country Club, but did not play at Wolf Ridge.
In the early going on, the Pirates may have been a little pressured by all the fans who attended at both courses to watch them play.
“I want to thank all the people who came out and watched our guys play,” Thomas said “They hadn't seen that many people watch them. They said there had to be about 20 people watching them. They struggled in the first round, but after that we did a lot better. That's going to help us because that's what we're going to see at the regional and state tournaments.”
In the small school division, Cameron's Kody Whitehead was top medalist with a score of 146, winning by five shots.
Also in the small school division, the Heavener Wolves were seventh (434-447—881). Idabel won the small school division title (610) by 35 team strokes over Rejoice Christian (645).
Leading the way for the Wolves was Jackson Long, who carded a 108-104—212. Colt Dunigan shot a 101-118—219, followed by Corby Kirkland (112-108—220) and Stormy Winters (113-117—230).
Whitehead had one other Yellowjacket on the links with him as Austin Standridge shot a 99-102—-201.
The Pirates will return to action next Monday in the Savanna Invitational at Aarowhead Resort Golf Course.Two local golfers won top-medalist honors at Monday's Poteau Pirate Invitational, which took place at both Choctaw Country Club and Wolf Ridge Golf Course.
