6A boys golf: Day 2
Well, plans changed overnight at the 6A golf tournament. The OSSAA determined that the partial second round played before storms hit on Monday should be wiped out. So there’s one final round to be played today, reducing the tournament to 36 holes.
Individuals and teams have begun to tee off, though they’re going off No. 10 this morning, rather than No. 1. That decision was made to allow a little extra time for the grounds crew to get holes 5-8 cleared off after some trees were uprooted by the tornado on Monday.
Again, the team race is led by Edmond North, with Edmond Santa Fe four back and Norman North six back. Edmond Memorial’s Taylor Moore leads the individual competition after shooting a 2-under 70. Edmond North’s Austen Fuller is a stroke back, and there’s a group of eight guys within five shots.
Most of the leaders have yet to hit the course today, other than individuals Dillion Mooreland of Shawnee, who shot 74 on Monday, as well as Jack Fiscus of Bixby and Kyle Raberding of Norman, both of whom shot 75.
The decision to wipe out between eight and 17 holes played by the entire field on Monday is a little confusing, but that was the decision made.
From a drama perspective, the unfortunate part about Tuesday’s alterations is the move to tee off on No. 10 instead of No. 1. Unlike the choice to erase the second round, this decision couldn’t be avoided without further delaying the tournament, but the 18th would have been a fun finishing hole. No. 18 is a par 5 with sand traps impacting the tee shot. Accuracy is necessary on the second shot to set up a clear look at the green, which lies over a creek to the left of the fairway.
