The AC Flora Boys Varsity Golf Team ambled up to Columbia Country Club, conveniently located in Blythewood, South Carolina, for the annual Parks Hutto Blythewood Bengal Invitational Tournament. 29 teams from around the state played in the four players-four count tournament.
Parks Hutto was a young and talented golfer at Blythewood High School who lost his life to a heart virus at a very early age. To honor Parks, the AC Flora Falcon Golf Teams have embroidered “PH” on their hats, a fitting tribute.
The Falcons managed a respectable fourth place finish in the 36 hole contest.
Adam Hunt led The Birds with a score of 75+72=147, followed by Guy Buffum with a 70+78=148, and Luke Sullivan and Wilhelm Elliott carding 73+80=153 and 79+74=153, respectively, all excellent scores.
“Our guys were right there in the mix with a chance to win their second event of the year,” observed Legendary Falcon Head Coach Robert Dargan.
“It wasn’t our day, but we did a lot of things well! Sometimes you learn more when you come up a little short. Hopefully this will show our guys that they are one of the top teams in the state. Next time we are in the position to close it out we will be a little more efficient,” he added.
The Falcons are now 50-12 on the 2019 campaign.
This weekend, the Falcons travel westward to Atlanta, Georgia, for the SC-GA Cup Challenge, featuring the best eight teams in each state in a battle for a big trophy.
Planterra Ridge Country Club in Peachtree City will be hosting the 36 hole event.
Golf is so cool.
