Blue skies greeted high school golfers on Tuesday September 3 for the 2019 Patriot Classic Golf Tournament hosted by Henry County High School at Paris Landing Golf Course. This is an annual 18-hole competition with a four-player total for boys and a three-player total for the girls.
There were 10 teams in the girl’s competition for a total of 33 girls competing. Teams participating were Clarksville, Henry Co., Dickson Co., Mont Central, FRA, Creek Wood, Stewart Co., Rossview and South Gibson. McKenzie Girls finished in 4th place. Maggie Glass shot 80, Juleyanne Weatherford shot 96 and Whitley Smith shot 98 for a total team score of 176. Match Record for the tournament 4-6.
For the boys, 12 teams participated for a total of 74 boys. Teams participating were Clarksville, Henry Co., Dickson Co., Clarksville Academy, Mont. Central, Creek Wood, Union City, Stewart Co., FRA, Rossview, and Houston Co. McKenzie boys finished in 7th place. Johnathan Moore shot 76, followed by Logan Green with a 92, Nathan Nanney with a 93 and Nolan Renfro with a 103 for a total team score of 364. Match record for the tournament 5-7.
While neither team placed in the top three, the boys and girls gained valuable experience playing in the 18-hole event as the greens were fast and challenged them.
On Thursday, September 5, the Rebel Golf Teams traveled to the Humboldt Golf Course. The greens had been recently aerated, which is a preventive maintenance. It’s an annual process, typically preformed in mid-summer. The process involves punching little holes into greens (and sometimes fairways) to open up growing room for grass roots and helps keep the turf grass healthy.
Playing at Humboldt along with McKenzie was TCA, South Gibson, USJ and Madison.
The ladies lost by 1 stroke to South Gibson but claimed the win over Madison. Maggie Glass shot 36, followed by Juleyanne Weatherford’s 40, Whitley Smith’s 46 and Kristin Bradberry’s 53.
The gentlemen lost by 13 strokes to TCA but claimed wins over South Gibson, USJ and Madison. Johnathan Moore, Logan Green and Nathan Nanney each shot a 38 in today’s match, Matt Espy and Nolan Renfro coming in with a 46 and Ben Dillon shot a 47.
