Despite losing his ball on No. 10 after what he thought was one of his best swings of the day, NHS’ Turner Howe finished third with a 77.
In addition to his teammates and coach, Howe had somebody else walking the course and watching him play. That was Chris Wilson, assistant golf coach at the Air Force Academy.
Howe remained relaxed.
“I played pretty solid,” Howe said. “I had my short game today.”
Though he lost his drive on 10, he still made a bogey 5 on the hole, taking just three strokes after returning to the tee after not finding his ball. The shot that hurt him the most, though, came on the next hole, an approach into the creek on No. 11.
“You’re going to have a couple of misses in this wind,” Howe said, “and I had a couple of misses in the wrong place.”
After Southmoore, Edmond North was next at 304, followed by Edmond Memorial at 307, Norman North at 317, Moore at 320 and NHS at 326.
Yukon, Westmoore, Mustang and a second team from NHS lagged behind.
North managed its fourth-place finish without necessarily sending it’s ‘A’ team. Holden Young led the T-Wolves with a 78.
A good time was had by most.
“My guys all like each other so we had a good time,” said Renfroe, who did not receive approval from every coach. “I had a couple of coaches who said, ‘I don’t want to do (‘Maxwell’ scoring) because my guys don’t get along,’ or because ‘I don’t like my guys that much.’”
