The Neosho golf team won its annual tournament on Wednesday, topping Miami (Okla.) by three strokes 316-319 at Neosho Golf Course.
The Wildcats had a big showing from Kyler Snow, who had the best individual score of the tournament with a 72. Meanwhile, teammates Blake Augustine and Calin Adams tied with the best ball (78), and Tyler Clemons and Jon Tucker finished second in the scramble (78).
In team results the Wildcats topped Miami, followed by Nevada with 319, Nevada 347, Parkview 375, Diamond 382, Neosho B 393, Thomas Jefferson 411 and McDonald County (no team score).
The Neosho “Gold” team that finished with the 316 was led by Snow’s 72 and Ryan Kelly’s 88 in the individual scores. Neosho’s “Black” team received a 96 from Austin Clemons and a 99 from Cameron Clemons in individual results, while Lukas Werneke and Blake Peoples had a 102 in the best ball, while Beau Barratt and Addison Derryberry teamed for a 96 in the scramble.
Diamond’s Jack Hardy shot a 90 and Cade Prewitt a 94 in the individual results, while Justine Trevino and Ethan King finished with a 112 in the best ball and Cort Hardy and Darren Russow turned in an 86 in the scramble.
The Mustangs had four golfers at the event, with Ty West and Kade McKee scoring a 112 in the best ball and Tyler Bishop and Wade West carding an 83 in the scramble.
“This is the first time we have won our tournament in the last (few) years, so it feels good to get off to a good start despite all (of the) weather conditions we have had,” Wildcats coach Mark Daugherty said. “Kyler Snow stepped up big in his first golf tournament by winning the individual with an impressive 72. Augustine and Adams combined well to win the Best Ball, and Clemons and Tucker made a senior/freshman combination work to place second in the scramble.
“It’s a great start, but we know we still left a lot of shots out there that we need to clean up, especially some short putts that we missed. We will need to take care of the details so we can continue to have success the rest of the year on the away courses.”
