Tiger Golf District Score Card

Ryan Gregory

Fresh off a Northwestern District Championship, the BDHS Golf team is already looking ahead towards their regional finals on the 13th.
With a year rattled by Covid-19, the Tigers did not slow down when it mattered most. The Tigers featured two of the top three golfers in this year’s district tournament. Reid Sanders placing first with a score of 72 and Isabel Bae who placed third scoring 77.

This year’s tournament was unlike any one ever before. It came down to a “playoff” to see which team would take home the championship. The Tigers trailed William Monroe by one point but quickly jumped back ahead to take a one-point lead. It then came down to the last player of the tournament, on William Monroe, who tied it up to send the Tigers and Dragons to a “team playoff.”

A “playoff” is when the top two teams are tied for first, and the two teams must take their top golfer to face off. The top golfer from each team will play a head-to-head match. The two players will compete on one of the previous courses in a winner take all system. Whoever puts the lowest score against the other golfer will win the “playoff” and their team will win the match.

The Tigers won the “team playoff,” which resulted in the Tigers winning districts. Isabel Bae stated

I had never seen a high school team play off before. Our team did our best and won the first playoff hole. ”

Bae also noted, “I am very grateful for the high school golf experience that I had with a great team full of amazing people. I cannot believe I will be leaving the team so soon and will miss them all and all the fun memories.”

All the Tigers had a great tournament featuring two of the top three finishers in the tournament. The Tigers also had great support from the rest of their team, featuring Addison Butler who scored 81 points, Mickey Haynes who finished with 84 points, Barrett Butler with 84 points as well, and Alex Bae who finished with 86 points.

The Tigers worked hard all season long pushing through the hardest times someone could imagine, the pandemic. With all the virus procedures put into place, the Tigers still made the best of their season and were just happy to be out there. The Tigers gave it their all and will prepare for states on Tuesday the 13th.
