Local linksters bow out in regional

Henryville — The North Decatur boys golf team, along with Greensburg freshman Keegan McCullough, competed in the IHSAA Regional Golf Tournament Thursday at Champions Pointe Golf Course in Henryville.

North placed 18th as a team, shooting a 346.

Columbus North won the team championship with a 297. Floyd Central followed with a second-place 301, and third-place Jasper shot a 302. Host-school Providence shot a 306 for fourth, and fifth-place Center Grove carded a 307.

Madison’s Jordan Griffith was the overall individual meet medalist with a 70.

North senior Thomas Shobe led the Chargers with an 83. He shot a 41 on the front nine and a 42 on the back. Shobe got off to a solid start, shooting a birdie on the second hole and carding a par on the next three. Shobe shot for par on all but four holes on the back nine, and finished with a birdie on the 18th.

Senior Charles Murray followed with an 84 (43-41). He shot for par on two holes in the front and three in the back. Murray shot a birdie on the 11th hole.

Freshman Dayne Lecher shot an 89 (50-39). The score sheet shows an 11-stroke improvement on the back nine, including a birdie on the 11th hole and par on five more holes.

Senior Nick Stewart carded a 44 in the front nine and a 46 on the back, bringing home a 90. He carded a par on three holes, but an eagle on the sixth highlighted his outing. He shot par on four holes on the back.

Junior David Bokelman shot a 53 on the front and a 69 on the back, totaling a 122. He shot par on the third hole.

Greensburg’s Keegan McCullough shot an 81, which ranked sixth among individuals not on a competing team. According to head coach Bryce Mize, McCullough “started off extremely well” by carding a par on each of the first eight holes. McCullough bogeyed the ninth to go out in 37.

“His front nine exceeded my expectations and put him right in the thick of things to move on to the State Finals,” said Mize. “His short game was terrific. He was knocking pitch shots close every time, and doing so well to scramble for pars.”

Unfortunately for McCullough, those same putts did not drop on the back nine, where he carded a 44.

“I really think the length of the course caught up to him,” said Mize. “It’s tough to score well when you are hitting hybrid clubs and fairway woods into the green every hole. Keegan definitely made the best of the situation though.”

Mize reflected on McCullough’s outing afterward.

“Even though he won’t make it to next week’s State Finals, the experience he gained today will do a lot for him in the years to come,” said Mize. “I was so proud of him out there today.”
