Golf: Whitley places second, Panthers finish sixth at Big Red Shootout
LED BY Thomas Whitley’s runner-up finish, the Jackson County boys’ golf team finished sixth at Monday’s Big Red Shootout in Gainesville with 123 points in a modified Stableford format.
Panther coach Warren Standridge called his team’s showing “awesome.”
“It was a super day for us with a very tough field,” he said.
In the modified Stableford format, points instead of strokes were used. Jackson County would have shot a 317 in a conventional tournament.
Whitley finished second with 41 points, which would have equated to a score of 73. York Delloyd added 31 points and a 78 score.
