MCS Golfers top Gilboa
With Tiger Woods all but disappearing from the leader boards of the major professional golf tournaments, America is looking for its next golf star. Perhaps America’s next King of the Links will be Keegan Bradley, the St. John University graduate, a rookie on the tour, who recently became one of only three professional golfers to win in their major debut. Bradley was the 2011 PGA Champion.
Or perhaps the next American champion is learning their game on the links somewhere in the land in high school golf competition.
Locally, the Margaretville Central School’s golf team got the fall season off in flashy style winning their first two matches. The Blue Devils upended Gilboa 188-218 in their Delaware League opener at the Christman’s Windham House. Three of Margaretville’s four players topped Gilboa’s Cole Fancher who paced the Wildcats shooting a 49.
Marshall Bouton shot a 44 to earn medalist honors for Margaretville. Ian Williams finished just behind Bouton scoring 46, and Mitch Hull finished with a 48. Eric Mathisen rounded out the Margaretville scoring with a 50.
The Christman Windham course par is 34.
The Blue Devils made it two in a row at Shephard Hills on Roxbury’s home course toppling the Rockets 217-229. Mitch Hull was the medalist shooting a 48 with Bouton second on the leader board, tied with Roxbury’s Shannon Sprague at 52. A Par at Shephard Hills is 36.
The match was Roxbury’s first of the season.
