High schools: Hayden Wood tops field at Oklahoma's Best golf tournament
Edmond North's Wood fires a 68, defeats Edmond Santa Fe's Max McGreevy in a playoff
MIDWEST CITY — The Wood family had quite a weekend on the golf course.
One day after Willie Wood finished tied for 12th place at the Senior PGA Championship in Benton Harbor, Mich., his son turned in an even better showing at his tournament.
Edmond North sophomore Hayden Wood carded a final-round 68 and defeated first-day leader Max McGreevy of Edmond Santa Fe in a playoff Monday to win the OJGT Oklahoma's Best Classic at John Conrad Golf Club.
Wood (70-68) needed a strong rally on Monday to earn the title. Despite coming into the final round tied for second, he trailed McGreevy, the Class 6A individual champ, by four strokes.
McGreevy opened the tournament with a 6-under-par 66, the best round of the event, and closed with a 72 in finishing second. Oklahoma Christian's Alexander Hall and Edmond North's Michael Hampton tied for third at 141.
In the girls tournament, Choctaw's Anna Mikish grabbed an early lead and held on for a one-stroke victory. Mikish led by two strokes after an opening-round 71, then held off a strong charge from the field.
Her 144 total was one shot ahead of Tulsa Union's Nadia Majidi, while Bishop McGuinness' Alexis Sadeghy, Poteau's Hannah Ward and Broken Arrow's Emma Allen all tied for third two shots back.
