Local golfers look to make noise at regional

ANDERSON — Two years ago, after the Pendleton Heights boys’ golf team took the sectional title at Purgatory Golf Club, led by a medalist finish by then-freshman Colin Proctor, the Arabians failed to make it out of regionals as a team by two strokes.

Proctor tied for fifth as an individual and scored a spot in the state meet the following week, where he missed the cut after the first round.

After taking both the individual medalist title and team title on Monday in the sectional at Purgatory, Pendleton Heights boys’ golf coach Jim Phillips said he thinks his team is primed for a solid round as a team today in the Muncie Central Regional at The Players Club in Yorktown.

Phillips scheduled two meets at the course for his players this season, including the Yorktown Invitational in April and the Muncie Central Invitational just a few weeks ago, in hopes of preparing his players for a likely return to the course in the regional.

The Pendleton Heights coach also took his squad to Yorktown for a practice round Wednesday, where Phillips said he saw a lot of promise in his team’s performance.

“It felt good,” Phillips said. “Everybody played well. I think we’re mentally ready to go, and the weather is supposed to be good tomorrow, so I think we should have a good showing.”

Proctor, who shot a one-under 71 at Purgatory on Monday, including a two-under back nine, said he shot a one-under practice round on Wednesday when he and his teammates took to the course. He said he didn’t feel like he played his best, but as a team, he said Pendleton shot a six-over 294 which would almost certainly qualify them for the two-day state tournament next week in Franklin, at The Legends Golf Club.
