All-County Boys Golf: MB’s Jarman trades bat for club

If things had worked out differently, Myrtle Beach High senior Dock Jarman might be swinging a Louisville Slugger instead of a Taylor Made. Looks like he picked the right stick.

Jarman was named the My Horry News Player of the Year after leading the Seahawks to their second straight runner-up finish in the SCHSL Class 4A state boys golf tournament.

“I stopped playing baseball after my sophomore year so I could try golf,” said Jarman, who was selected to play in the North-South All-Star Game. “I played a lot of golf on the side with my uncles and friends. I wasn’t very good but I loved it. I decided to give up baseball so I could get better. I’ve busted my butt to get where I am.”

Jarman finished his two-year high school career as one of the best golfers in the state, which is even more impressive since he wasn’t always the best golfer on his team. Joining Jarman on four different all-tournament teams this season were junior Holden Grigg, the 2017 state champion, and sophomore Keegan Vaugh, the region player of the year.

All three shot an average 18-hole score of 75 on the season, creating a competitive environment that helped Jarman develop.

“It pushes all of us to get better and motivates us to try to beat each other,” Jarman said. “We try to push each other play the best we can. That’s good for the team.”

In fact, Myrtle Beach had a different player place highest in their final three major tournaments (Vaugh was region medalist, Jarman was Lower State runner-up, and Grigg led the team at the state tourney. The tightly matched trio was a good problem to have for Seahawks head coach and Boys Golf Coach of the Year Lowell Counce.

“Without our top three playing well all year, we wouldn’t have had the success we had,” he said. “Holden would be the leader one week, then Keegan would get hot and lead, then Dock would get hot and become the leader, so everyone was on their game at one time or another. Dock has worked hard the last two years. … Hard work pays off.”

Jarman won out over fellow POY nominees and teammates Grigg and Vaugh, as well as a pair of seniors and all-county team members from rival schools.

Carolina Forest’s Chris Fortenberry finished tied for third place at the Class 5A state tournament, and St. James’ Coleman Bess was the top medalist at the Region 7-4A tournament.
