High Winds Send Qualifying Scores Soaring at The Ranches
High winds at The Ranches sent State Am qualifying scores soaring and a score of 86, probably the highest qualifying score in the history of the tournament, was good enough to advance to the finals.
Brady Stanger was able to keep the ball low and straight and shot a remarkable 74 for medalist honors. ZachPymm was second with a 76 and 78s were good enough for third and fourth by Elden Parker and Paul Hammer. Prominent players to advance included David Booth and Nic Booth of Glenmoor and UGA Board Member Dave Dorton. His son, Dallas Dorton, was one of the three surprised players to shoot 86s and still make the cut. The other two were Ryan Edvalson and Steve Warnick.
