Mason's team, Boyd's Barker win Eagle Trace Invite

Friday, Aug. 1 -- In Friday’s season-opening boys’ golf tournament, Mason County carded a 317 to defend its team title at the Eagle Trace Invitational on the par-72, 6,500-yard Morehead State University course.

The Royals won by two strokes over Pulaski County, which shot a 319. Elliott County was third with a 320, followed by Estill County and Ashland Blazer (each with a 327, but Estill won the tiebreaker), host Rowan County (332), Montgomery County (335), Boyd County (347), Greenup County (350), Paintsville (354), Highlands (381), Bath County (459) and Morgan County (462).

Defending 12th Region champion senior Drew Burke of Boyd County captured individual medalist honors after birdying the final hole, the final of his four on the day, to register a 72 for a 1-stroke victory over Rowan County senior Michael Taylor and Elliott County junior Ryan Gillum.

Fifteen players finished within seven strokes of par, including Mason County’s Tyler Lippert and Estill County’s Andrew Farmer, who each shot a 74; Ashland’s Tate Justus, who was sixth with a 75; Pulaski County’s Justin Mayfield (seventh at 76); Mason County’s Chandler Clark and Pulaski County’s Kellen Wilson (tied for eighth at 77); and Rowan County’s Chase Flannery and Montgomery County’s Tristan Blevins (tied for 10th at 78).

Due to new KHSAA state scoring rules, the course played longer than in previous years, which was noticeable based on Mason County’s victorious 2013 team score of 295. To score state points, courses now have to be at least 6,500 yards. Eagle Trace will also host the 12th Region boys’ golf tournament at the end of September.

Pre-tournament notes: Today begins the start of the 2014-15 athletic year. The kickoff event is the Eagle Trace Invitational boys’ golf tournament, which is slated to begin at 9 a.m. on the home course of Morehead State University. This will be the third year of the event. In 2012, Montgomery County captured the crown after carding a 310, with Southwestern’s Dylan Bray registering a 2-under par 70 to claim top individual honors. Last year, Mason County won the team title after shooting a 295, with Estill County second at 301. The Engineers’ Travis Adams won individual medalist honors after defeating Mason’s Jackson Frame with a par on the first playoff hole. Adams carded a 1-under par 71. Mason County and Estill County, as well as defending 12th Region champion Montgomery County and runner-up Ashland Blazer, return to headline the 13-team field (which also will include a handful of individual participants) that will feature five squads which participated in the 2013 state tournament (Mason, Montgomery, Estill, Ashland and Pulaski County). The course is slated to play 6,500 yards with 72 as par. The 6,500 yardage reflects this year’s new rule as a minimum distance to qualify for state points.
