Comments: The Tiger Cubs defeated Owen Valley on Wed. afternoon by a score of 158 – 177 at Tiger Pointe CC. The weather was very pleasant and the course in good condition as the two teams played a WIC contest. The Cubs were led by Jake Bennett and Jaxon Parmley with scores of 39. Both Players hit many good shots, but had trouble getting putts to drop as the greens were a little slower than usual. Conner, Benton, Blaise, Kyle, and Josh rounded out the scoring for the Cubs. Owen Valley was led by Rece Heckman with a 40. This was the 1st time at Tiger Pointe to play Summer rules this season. All the players from both teams found that preferred lies make scoring easier than playing the ball as it lies. This is excellent practice for future matches and Sectional as that is how the ball must be played. The rough was thick and deep which also caused mishits by everyone. The more they play Summer rules the easier it will become to strike the ball solid and be able to score better.

Next Match: Wed. May 23rd at Tiger Pointe against Cascade and Monrovia at 4:30. This is senior night honoring Jake and Blaise
