OSAA 6A Golf Championships Wednesday, May 16, 2007

Sand flies as Todd Vrooman of Tualatin hits out of a bunker Tuesday on the fourth hole at the OGA course in Woodburn. Vrooman finished tied for fifth with a two-day score of 145 (+1).

Yesterday I covered the final day of the 6A boys golf championships in at the OGA Golf Course in Woodburn (just south of Portland). The results are posted here.

High school golf is played both as a team sport and an individual contest. The individual winners are calculated much the same way as at a PGA event. Team scores are calculated by totaling the scores of five players from the same school.

For the golf championships, the top two teams from each district qualify for the meet, as do the three
highest individuals not on one of those teams. In class 6A, 91 golfers from across the state qualified for the tournament.

Though he started the day tied for 11th, five shots off the pace, the Sheldon junior blew past the competition with a solid second round, winning the individual title by two strokes.
