Outlaws golfer scores hole-in-one

First-year golfer Dillon Luddy made a hole-in-one in his first high school tournament on April 2 when the Outlaws golf squad played at Prineville Golf Course. He finished with a score of 97. Weslee Owens, playing in his first event, scored 112. Devin Coverdale fired a solid 76.

“In my 50-plus years of being around the game, it is truly remarkable to see a kid make a hole-in–one in his first tournament,” said Coach Bill Mitchell. “Golfers can play their entire lives without making an ace.”

Then the team played again in Prineville, this time at Meadow Lakes, and Devin Coverdale and Trent Gordon both had 87s and Dillon Luddy shot a 108. Gordon is playing two sports, baseball and golf.”

He is the only golfer to make it to state last year and is a strong pitcher and first baseman so it is nice to have him back on the golf team,” Mitchell said.

On April 12 the team traveled to Bend, where Summit High School hosted at Broken Top — “probably the best course we play all season,” according to Mitchell.

On a tough, rainy day, Gordon scored 45-40 for 85, which included a birdie-three on his last hole, the ninth at Broken Top, a 356-yard par-4, where he drove the green and had a putt for eagle.
