Indian Land golfers tee off for three straight wins

The Indian Land golf team has beaten its last three opponents.

The Warriors beat McBee twice and Camden Military Academy once last week to improve to 4-4 on the year.

They started off the week by beating McBee head-to-head 179-215. The team shot its lowest score of the season at Carolina Lakes Golf Course. Chase Hunter led the way for Indian Land with a one over par 37. The Warriors other finishers included Zach Brigman's and Brandon Thomas' 46 and Clay Holcomb's 50.

The very next day, the two teams went back at it, but this time also competing against Camden Military.

The Warriors again came out on top shooting a 173. Camden Military shot a 180, followed by McBee's 183.

Hunter again led with a 34. Both Thomas and Holcomb shot rounds of 46 and Brigman finished with a 47.

"The team has really come together in the past week," said first year head coach Jonathan Ferguson. "The players have been working hard to improve their approaches and play on and around the greens. Hopefully, we can move forward into the rest of the season with the confidence we have gained from our much improved play. "

The team has one more Region match, against Chesterfield, before the Region III-A tournament April 28.

The Indian Land golf team is planning to participate in the Class A State golf tournament at Stoney Point in Greenwood, SC May 4-6, but needs help.

The golf team needs $500 to pay for the tournament entry fee and hotel rooms.

Any business interested in making a donation, make checks payable to Indian Land golf and send them to the high school, attention coach Michael Mayer or contact Mayer at the school between 1-3 pm daily.
