CCHS struggles to fourth-place finish at Pronghorn

Mason Tibbs fires round of 82 to lead team


After tying for fifth in a major tournament last Friday, the Cowboys struggled Tuesday, finishing fourth at the five-team Pronghorn Invitational.

“It was rough,” said Crook County Head Coach Zach Lampert. “They are kind of like Yo-Yos — up and down. We were about 40 shots higher than Friday.”

Lampert was quick to add that Pronghorn is one of the toughest courses that the team will play all season.

“You are probably talking a few shots per player higher for the golf course,” he said. “A course like this can eat you up. If you are not in the fairway you are in the desert, so it’s not as forgiving as some of the other courses where if you hit it to the right you might just be on a different fairway.”

Summit won the tournament with a round of 310, 10 shots higher than they shot while winning Friday’s tournament at Eagle Ridge. Once again, Bend finished second posting a round of 315. Ridgeview, which tied with Crook County on Friday, finished third Tuesday with a round of 367, while the Cowboys posted a score of 372, and Redmond trailed the field with a score of 429.

Although the Cowboys struggled as a team, Mason Tibbs had another strong performance, posting a round of 82 to lead the team.

“That’s consistent,” Lampert said. “He did the same thing he’s done — mostly good holes and a couple of bad holes. He had two sevens today, so other than that he’s really playing well.”

Cabe Goehring also had a decent round, finishing with a 90. Kody Kuk, who posted a score of 79 on Friday, struggled Tuesday, finishing with a 96, while Josh Christian was the final scorer for the Cowboys with a 104. Tom Harvey also played in the tournament, shooting a round of 110, but did not count in the scoring.

Declan Watts of Summit and Max McGee of Bend shared medalist honors for the tournament with rounds of 75.

The Cowboys are scheduled to play at Broken Top Golf Club in Bend today with golf scheduled to tee off at 10 a.m. The team is back in action again on Monday when they play at Bend Country Club in an 11 a.m. tournament.

“Broken Top is still probably a little tougher course than Eagle Crest,” Lampert said. “But I would expect them playing a little better than today. We are going to go out and work on what they were struggling with and hopefully we can knock five or 10 shots off from each person.”
