Wolves take team title in Huggins Memorial
South Kitsaps Brady Sharp wasnt sharp, but the Wolves golf team had a good day, winning the team title at the 37th annual Tim Higgins Memorial Tournament on Thursday at the Kitsap Golf & Country Club.
South and Port Angeles posted the low number (318 strokes) in the four-man, 10-team tournament, but the Wolves prevailed in a two-hole playoff on the first hole.
Ryan Akers 74, good for third overall individually, led the Wolves. Tristan Warton shot 81 and Matt Pritchard 84.
Sharp, the defending champion who set a tournament record with a 2-under-par 69 a year ago, came in with a 79.
After a bogey at the first hole, Sharp four-putted on No. 2 after knocking a shot into the bunker. That kind of set the whole day off, said the long-hitting Sharp. I just couldnt get it going.
Sharp finished with just one birdie, after averaging about seven birdies a round this year, he said.
His problems revolved around his short game.
I have no confidence right now, he said.
Sharp will try to get his game back together before the Narrows League Tournament on May 8-10 at Lake Spanaway Golf Course. Fifteen teams will send squads with only 14 players advancing to the state 4A tournament. Girls play
Wednesday and Friday; boys Thursday and Friday. The field will trimmed to the low 28 and ties after the first round.
Aker finished two strokes back of winner John Hausdorf of Central Kitsap, who edged teammate C.J. Hanson of CK by a stroke. Hanson was the only girl in the field.
