POMEROY, Ohio — The Meigs County Golf Course played host on Tuesday, June 24, to the second week of the Frank Capehart Tri County Junior Golf League. And, what a host the course turned out to be. The young men and women had a beautiful morning to play on a well conditioned course. But, most of all, the course gave up one of the rear feats in golf, a hole-in-one.
Wyatt Nicholson, playing in the 13-14 year old age group, aced the par 4 6th hole. It was Wyatt’s first career hole-in-one and was witnessed by his playing partners for the day, Carl Sayre and Jasiah Brewer.
In addition to Wyatt’s exciting shot, the other golfers in all the age groups turned in some fine scores. A pattern may be developing in the point race for each group, but it is too early in the season to come to any conclusions.
CJ Angel won the 10 and under age group for the second week in a row. His score of 51 gave him a 6 stroke advantage over Logan McGee and Sam Arnold. Landon McGee shot a 63 to finish in 4th place for the day.
A tie for the first place trophy was the result in the 11-12 year old age group. Both Cooper Davis and Cole Arnott shot a score of 51. Nicholas Durst finished 3rd with his score of 56. Jay Sayre’s score of 63 placed him in 4th place for the day’s action.
Wyatt Nicholson’s ace helped him to a fine score of 41 giving him the win in the 13-14 year old age group. Levi Chapman turned in a score of 47 to finish in second place while Colton Blakeman shot 50 for 3rd place, Carl Sayre and Jasiah Brewer tied for 4th with identical scores of 52. Primo Averion followed the others with a score of 64.
