The Rome High School golf team went head-to-head with the Model Blue Devils at Stonebridge Golf Club on Monday, April 12. This is the Wolves last local match for the 2021 season.
According to Rome High Head Coach, Kevin Davis, several Wolves players performed their best rounds during this tournament.
“I felt that we played pretty well,” said Davis. “We had a couple of individuals, like Cole Walker and Hogan Ingram, that shot their best score of the season. As a matter of fact, Hogan (who has signed with Georgia Southern) broke the school record for a 9-hole match with a 30 with four birdies and an eagle.”
Davis continued, “This season, we have struggled to put together four good scores of which we are capable. However, as the weather warms and the conditions become better, and as we get more holes and repetitions under our belts, I think we are going to peak at the right time.”
This weekend, the Wolves have been invited and will be attending the Lagrange Toyota Granger Invitational at Callaway Gardens where they will be playing 72 holes.
“The field at this tournament includes 12 of the best teams from all classifications in the State of Georgia,” explained Davis. “We will come back from this tournament on Saturday and then play in the area tournament at Governors Towne Club in Acworth on Monday.”
If the Wolves finish first or second place at the Governors Towne Club Tournament, they will advance straight to the State tournament. If they finish third or fourth place, the Wolves will have to travel to Jekyll Island to play 18-holes in order to earn their way into the State tournament.
“Overall, I am very proud of this team,” said Davis. “We have faced some adversity this year that has come in several different forms, but we have fought through these things together. The work ethic of these young men is great and most importantly, they all love the game. I am excited to see what this group is going to accomplish in the upcoming weeks.”
