LAUREL COUNTY — Steve King’s South Laurel Cardinals turned in a sixth place finish in their own invitational by shooting a 337.
Zach Royster led the Cardinals with a 77, as Corbin’s Cody Ellis led the way during the Redhounds’ dominating effort at the London Country Club.
Even though his team placed sixth, King was pleased with his squad’s effort.
“We are a young team with a lot of talent,” he said. “It is early in the season, but inconsistent play has been our problem thus far and consistency is key to golf.”
King said he was impressed with the way Royster hung tough and led the team with a 77.
“I’m proud of Zach,” he said. “He had some bumpy spots in his round where he had a string of bad holes, but he hung in there, gutted it out, kept his composure and didn’t quit and posted a good score of 77.
“In our last tournament, Trey Martin was our low man with a 76, but he struggled a bit today,” King added. “Jake Arnold has improved a lot over the summer and has played well. Tanner Sibert played great at North Laurel’s tournament last week at Crooked Creek with an 81, but had an off day today. We are just too inconsistent right now for me to predict how the rest of the year will go, but I know we have talent throughout the entire team.”
King also wanted to thank the people who have helped make his boys golf program successful.
“I would like to thank Mr. Bill Robinson, Mike Kissel and the London Country Club for allowing us the use of their facility,” he said.
