Arabians roll past Eagles

PENDLETON—The Pendleton Heights’ golf team is amid a stretch of five matches in six days after having a week where the only competition they faced wore the same colors.

Wednesday was the second match of the week with the Arabians taking on the Frankton Eagles at Fall Creek Golf Club.

Trevar Denney and Tyler Meyer each shot even-par 35’s on their home course to lead Pendleton Heights to a 143-177 victory.

“We had some kids shoot some pretty decent scores,” Pendleton coach Jim Phillips said. “Finally got a nice night.”

Both Denney and Meyer struggled slightly out of the gate with each recording bogeys on their early holes, but each was able to recover to get back to par.

Meyer’s first bogey came on his first hole, No. 7, with his second on No. 9. Denney carded a five on the par-4 No. 8 hole, his second of the round.

“I just hit terrible wedge shots,” Meyer said. “I hit them too hard and the wind was hard to judge.”

Meyer overcame the bogeys to card birdies on two of his next three holes, No. 1 and No. 3.

“I just try to make par and if I make a birdie—yea,” Meyer said. “There are a lot of birdie holes out here so it is easy to get your strokes back.”

Denney got his stroke back with a birdie on No. 2, the course’s shortest par-3 at 109 yards.

Rounding out the four low scores that count toward the team score were Chase Simpson’s 36, tying his low 9-hole tally of the year, and Cody Branham’s 37.

“Our four, five, six, seven kids are starting to play better,” Phillips said. “I love to see when kids I know can play well finally shows it in a match.”

Phillips sent out an alternate line up with three golfers missing the event, including Colin Proctor and Zach Farrer, both firmly in the Arabians top-five.
