High School golf in March and early April can be a tricky sport. The two main tournaments when it comes to high school golf in Oklahoma are the regional tournament and then of course, the state tournament.
Everything else up to that point is simply just “practice”, but even though it may be just “practice”, coaches still want to see their teams perform well and make improvements from one round to the next.
On Monday morning at The Greens Country Club in Oklahoma City, the Mustang boys golf team played in the Yukon Miller Invitational. Nine total teams competed in the tournament. Casady, Deer Creek, Elk City, Bishop McGuiness, Piedmont, Putnam City North, Yukon, Stillwater and of course Mustang all competed in the event.
The Broncos had a successful day on the course with a fifth-place finish with a score of 340. Deer Creek finished first overall with a score of 305. Bishop McGuiness took second with a score of 328, Casady finished in third-place with a score of 334, Stillwater took fourth-place with a score of 336, Elk City finished in sixth-place with a score of 342, Piedmont took seventh-place with a score of 349, Putnam City North took eighth-place with a score of 350 and tournament host Yukon took ninth-place with a score of 354.
