EHS 8th at Enid Golf Invitational

ENID, Okla. — Hiis Edmond Santa Fe teammates jokingly call him the Max McGreevy.

He lived up to the billing Monday in repeating as the individual medalist and leading the Wolves to the team championship at the Enid Golf Invitational at Meadowlake and Oakwood.

The University of Oklahoma- bound golfer didn’t seem bothered by temperatures in the 40s, high winds and a little rain as he shot a 68 at Meadowlake and a 73 at Oakwood for a 141, beating teammate Kyle Burk (75-74) by eight shots.

“It feels pretty good to have played a couple of good rounds under bad conditions,’’ McGreevy said. “I was able to make some putts and stay patient. When you’re playing 36 holes in bad conditions, you have to give yourself as many opportunities as possible.’’

McGreevy actually beat his last year’s winning score of 144.

“I love coming back here,’’ McGreevy said. “I love both of these courses. They’re both old-time courses that have been here for a long time. They have a lot of trees. I like that kind of course structure.’’

Drew Ison (74-76-150) was third as the Wolves won the team championship by 31 shots over runner-up Edmond North with a 600. Heritage Hall was third with a 639.

“We played really well,’’ said Santa Fe coach Mike Stolz.

The host Plainsmen were eighth with a team score of 700. They had a 340 in the afternoon round at Oakwood after shooting a 360 at Meadowlake in the morning.

“It’s pretty close to what I thought we would shoot,’’ said Enid coach David Lee. “I was pretty proud that they shot 20 strokes better at Oakwood under tougher conditions. I thought we would shoot better at Meadowlake, but it wasn’t too bad of a day.’’

Colton Jackson went from an 88 at Meadowlake to a 76 at Oakwood for a 164. He was followed by Mason North (88-85-173), Stephen Nicholas (87-86-173), Lucas Dillingham (103-93-196) and Chris Hayes (97-98-197).

“That 88 at Meadowlake was very uncharacteristic of Colton,’’ Lee said. “That will probably be his highest round of the season. He’ll bounce back and be in the 70s and low 80s the rest of the season.’’

The comeback, though, was a “big confidence-builder’’ for Jackson.

“He showed some integrity and some internal fortitude,’’ Lee said. “Instead of pouting, he bore down in the cold. He’s our leader. There were some good golfers here today. Just like any other sport, we need to spend more time at the course to improve.’’

Lee was wanting to see how his team did playing 36 holes for the first time.

“We got a little tired,’’ he said. “Battling through the cold draws on you mentally. You’re looking forward to getting down instead of focusing on your shot. We did lower our scores, and I’m proud of them.’’
