Clover Coach Doug Wokoun comments: The high scores are a good indication of the difficulty of the course. There were a number of talented young men in our sectional, but the course got the better of many of them. I don’t recall over the last fifteen years seeing scores like we had this year. The weather and conditions were perfect, but the level of competition seemed to be a strong influence on all the players in a negative way.

Drew had one bad hole on his first nine, but had some scoring opportunities get away from him. He battled on the second nine, but he was trying to make some things happen, and it worked against him. He has been a very good player for us, and I hated to see him finish this way. To his credit, he fought as best he could, and represented us very well.

Wyatt and Michael had rounds that were much like the rest of their seasons. Both did some very good things, but also had some issues with misfired shots and hazard areas on the course. They are competitors and gave us all they had. They both have positives to build on for next season, but their offseason work will determine how far they progress.

Jason had one of those days when nothing seems to work. He didn’t get a good start, although he had a couple of decent holes on his first nine. His second nine started well, but he ran into some issues that he just couldn’t overcome. I wish his last round as a high school player could have been different, but golf can be a very difficult endeavor, and it got the best of him in this round. Cody was getting his first tournament experience, and had some moments that were promising. He has battled consistency all spring, and it continues to be his biggest obstacle to success. I think he has some very good potential, and his offseason will also be key to his next season.

While we have completed our season, we are still hopeful that the Tiger Cubs and Tyler Hicks will represent Putnam County golf well this week in the regional at County Oaks.

Cloverdale finishes the season at 10-10.
