After a three-putt bogey — his first of the day — on the 17th hole, Ada senior Justin Powell went to the 18th tee angry.
He ripped a drive down the fairway of the 471-yard par 5 that left him only a pitching wedge to the green, then rolled in a 15-foot eagle putt to post the low round of the Class 4A state golf tournament, an 8-under-par 64, on Tuesday at Lake Hefner's North Course.
As special as it was for Powell personally to shoot his best round on the final day of the state tournament, it was even bigger for his team.
Behind Powell's 64 and fellow senior Wyatt Robson's 3-under 69, Ada defeated Heritage Hall by six shots to win the team title. Elk City was third, 13 shots back.
Tied with Heritage Hall entering the final round, Ada shot a 4-under 284 Tuesday. It was Ada's 10th title in boys golf, but first since 1989.
“It's been 24 years, so it's cool to take this one back to the community and all the people that support us,” Robson said. “This is a good win.”
Powell's round, which included three eagles and three birdies, moved him into third individually at 208, with Cody Shore of Poteau and Garrison Mendoza of Clinton tying for fourth at 209.
“In practice, I've shot 66 before, but this is my lowest round by far,” he said. “Good to go out with a bang.”
