Roundup: Seymour golfers find consistency in first home match
Gary Householder is fond of saying it’s crucial to get every member of his Seymour golf team playing well on the same day.
The Eagles got as close to that goal as you can on Monday, nearly putting four scores in the 30s in a victory over Sevier County and Pigeon Forge at Creekside Plantation. Wesley Jones led Seymour (152) with a 1-over-par 36 on the front nine while Peyton Pressley shot 37, Eli Jenkins had a 38 and Trey Myrick nearly had a 39 before finishing with a 41. Spencer Cross was the medalist for the Smoky Bears (166) with a 2-under-par 33. Pigeon Forge (204) was led by a 37 from Tyler Bohanan.
“I thought it was going to be 36, 7, 8 and 9 there and then Trey got into trouble on the last hole,” Householder said. “But he’s still playing a lot better. He’s down to the low 40s, so he’s starting to come around. All four of them had nice rounds.”
The Eagles, in their first home match, were just as consistent on the girls side. Katelyn Witucki and Shelby Stinnett each shot 40 to give Seymour an 80-111 win over the Bearettes. Tiffany Shelton led Sevier County with a 55.
“I’ve had some struggles here and there but I’ve been getting it more consistent every time I play,” Witucki said. “That’s what I’m working on this year.”
