Golf: Sharks, Seahawks tie; Chiefs, Braves top tri-match

nmbgolf-kneelWindy conditions set the stage for high drama at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club on Wednesaday as Region 7-4A rivals Myrtle Beach and St. James battled to a draw.

With gusts of up to 35 mph blowing in before the end of the match, St. James’ Charlie Wilke drained a par putt on the ninth and final hole to level the score at 157-all.

Myrtle Beach posted nearly identical individual rounds as Keegan Vaugh and Doc Jarman shot 37s, Seth Boyce carded a 41 and Holden Grigg posted a 42 to round out the Seahawks’ scoring. Vaugh double-bogeyed the final hole to open the door for the Sharks.
