HINTON — There is consistency, and then there is the round fired by Oklahoma Christian School's Jackson Ogle.

After shooting a disappointing 77 on the opening day, Ogle wasn't flashy, but he was very effective.

Ogle shot a 70 to win the Class 2A state championship at Sugar Creek Canyon by four strokes Tuesday afternoon.

It wasn't the 70 that was impressive, though it tied for the best round of the day, but it was how he did it. Ogle shot a four on 16 holes and threes on the other two holes to earn his first title.

“I was just real consistent today. This is something I've been gunning for and wanting for a long time,” Ogle said.

Because of Monday's weather and darkness, Ogle was in a rare position entering the final round: coming from behind.

He trailed teammate Alexander Hall and Hinton's Haden George by one shot after the first round but was taking control in Monday's second round when it was called off.

Ogle didn't need any extra motivation but that ruling sure gave him some more. Ogle was defeated by former Fairview star Logan Herbst last year and has been driven by that defeat all season.
