The AC Flora Boys Golf Varsity Team licked their wounds at The Southern Cross at Palmetto Golf Club in Aiken, South Carolina, and went north-ish to the Furman University Golf Course for the AAAA South Carolina High School League Boys Golf Upper State Championships.
Posting a score of 303 in a field of 16, with a few individual players, the Falcons won by three whole strokes besting Eastside High School, an educational effort in palatial Greenville, South Carolina, just down a spell on I-85 from Spartanburg, South Carolina, where you will find prestigious Wofford College, a.k.a. “The Harvard of The Piedmont”, home of The Mighty Terriers, but I digress.
Adam Hunt continues to excel for Our Favorites, carding a 72, earning All-Upper State Honors.
Ford Reynolds’ 74 was an excellent showing, just missing All-Upper State honors. Luke Sullivan’s 77 added to the victory, with a pair of 80’s from Wilhelm Elliott and Guy Buffum to round out The Fabulous Fowl’s day on the links at Furman University, truly one of the most beautiful campuses in the U.S.A.
“We turned the page after The Southern Cross and preparation was solid,” astutely observed Legendary Head Coach and the Big Toe of both the Boys and Girls Flora Falcon Golf Teams’ Feet.
“We kept our mental mistakes to a minimum. It was a total team effort, and we accomplished our goals by winning today, our 6th win of the year.”
Coach Dargan isn’t finished though, “Our ultimate goal is in front of us: next week at Hilton Head.”
The Flora Falcons improve to 179- 47 on the 2019 Campaign.
Go Falcons! I love everything about golf except the missing putts part.
Next week, Our Blue and Red Boys of Spring head down to Hilton Head, South Carolina, honing laser-Falcon-like-vision focus to bring the South Carolina AAAA State Championship Trophy back to Forest Acres, South Carolina, where it feels comfortably at home.
Road Trip! Golf is cool.
I’m thinking the Tiki Hut on Forest Beach.
(Editor’s Note as an opinion: Congratulations to Eldrick Tont “Tiger” Woods for his honor today when he was awarded of the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Trump. While many golf fans have been supporters of Tiger and others are not fans, anyone who earns the Presidential Medal should be respected.)
