EAGLE RIDGE GOLF LEAGUE NEWS...

               Bill JacksonBill Jackson

What can I Say? Eagle Ridge Yielded Another League Record!

 

 On Tuesday afternoon, again with threatening rain clouds looking down upon us, the rain held off until the final three holes; then we only had light sprinkles, just enough to get your glove and golf grips wet. Just a wipe with a towel and everything was fine. I had my rain gear out for a gully washer, but I didn’t even open my umbrella. With the inclement weather appearing in the sky, our attendance was down. However, we did have 18 golfers, more than I expected.

Brandon May set a new league record with a net 24. WOO-WE!

This week the League played the back nine, that plays to a par of 36. Twelve under par will raise anyone’s eyebrows. It was an enjoyable evening for golf. It is hard to believe that 17 out of the 18 of the players who participated turned in a net score of par or better. AMAZING!

The course was a little soft, and the greens were receptive. The low gross score was an excellent three-under par 33. Those scoring less than 30 included Brandon May (25) and, Bill Jackson (29). Never in my wildest dreams did I believe that Eagle Ridge could be brought to its knees. Tuesday night, I was proven wrong.

For the night there were a total of 14 birdies and 1 eagle. This is what I call golfing your ball. Remember, only a few weeks ago, the lowest score for the night was even par. It will be interesting to see if these great scores can be carried forward or whether Eagle Ridge will come back and “bite” us again. I would say the latter will happen.

Now for the scores and the highlights for May 29.

Bulldogs erupt for seven in sixth to slam Phelps in Region 15 first round

PAINTSVILLE, KY. --  After a long delay for inclement weather and a steady rain that fell the entire game, Lawrence Co. (31-7) used a seven run sixth inning to put away a pesky Phelps team 11-1 in the first round of the 15th Region Baseball tournament at Johnson Central Monday night.

Tyler Maynard was solid on the mound for Lawrence Co. in the first round of the 15th Region tournament.

Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner

COACH'S COMMENTS

“... Yep you said it, survive and advance. This time of the year that’s our only focus. Win the day. We did that tonight. Tough night to play baseball having to wait for a really long time to even get started and then play thru constant rain the whole game.”

“... Tyler Maynard stepped up to the challenge and gave us exactly what we expected him to do and needed him to do.”

“... Offensively we had a hard time figuring New out and that’s to his credit. He did a good job of keeping us uncomfortable in the batters box. Jackson hit a big HR in the first inning and it seemed like after that we left men on base the rest of the night until the 6th.”

“... Proud of our guys for moving on. Looking forward to the semifinals.”
