Tyrone golfers win opener against B-A

Tyrone Golden Eagles took to the Sinking Valley Country Club, Thursday, on a beautiful sunshine filled day to open their regular season against the Bellwood-Antis Blue Devil golf team.
On a day when both teams had some tough holes, and scores on both sides for the most part were slightly above what both coaches expected, the Eagles of Tyrone, wound up on top by a slim six-shot margin.
Leading the way for the Eagles was steady Jimmy Ferguson, posting a 2-under par 70.
“I’m not sure there is anything I can say, other than he is tough,” said Tyrone coach Greg Ferguson. “Jimmy works hard on his game, after coming off of a 1-under par round at the Bolton Monday, he backed it up with a -2 here at the valley, he is just playing well, hopefully he can keep it up.”
Following up for the Eagles scoring total was James Russell- 93, Kyle Updyke – 96, Jordan Taylor – 97, Ronnie Garbinski – 98, and Eric Loose – 99,
“All these guys had at least 2 tough holes, each guy had and 8,9 and, or a 12, that would have most kids giving up, explained Ferguson. “These kids stayed the course and got everything out of the game that they could today, We talk about how one shot can and will make the difference, they all hung in there for the team, We knew Bellwood is much improved and would be a tough task for the day, fortunately for us today, they had the same problems as we did.”
Freshman Olivia Stever participated in the exhibition match for Tyrone, Olivia posted a score of 91. “Olivia is doing a good job, she will be in our regular line up next match.”
Leading the way for the Blue Devils was Tom Trexler, posting a score of 75.
“Tom had a rough start but turned it up a notch after hole #8. Tom played the next nine holes at 5-under par before double bogeying the 18th hole,” said Ferguson”
Following the scoring range for the Blue Devils was Andy Newguard- 93, Matt Beech- 96, and Kyle Shawley – 98.
The Golden Eagles and Blue Devils will be off to the Yurachko Memorial Invitational, Monday at the Summit Country Club.
