Two Tooele County golfers wrapped up their respective seasons Thursday at the high school state golf championships as Tooele’s Bridger Holmes and Grantsville’s Brock May each narrowly missed out on top-10 finishes.
At Cove View Golf Course in Richfield, May finished in a tie for 14th place with Morgan’s Colton Welsh at the Class 3A state tournament. May shot an 82 in Wednesday’s first round and followed that with an 80 on Thursday for a two-day total of 162, 12 shots behind state champion Masen Ward of Grand. May was six strokes away from a top-10 finish.
Grantsville missed the team cut by three strokes on Wednesday, leaving May to compete as an individual. Grand, which had won the Class 2A championship each of the past two seasons, won its third consecutive team title by four strokes over Morgan. Carbon, North Sanpete, Judge Memorial, South Sevier, Richfield and Union rounded out the top eight.
At Sky Mountain Golf Course in Hurricane, Holmes tied for 17th place after shooting back-to-back rounds of 77 for a two-day total of 154 at the Class 4A state tournament. Holmes tied with Park City’s Dean Tsandes, 11 strokes behind state champion Triston Gardner of Snow Canyon, but only one stroke behind an eight-way tie for ninth place.
Like Grantsville, Tooele missed the team cut by three strokes. Park City won the team championship by 13 strokes over Bonneville, with Desert Hills, Sky View, Ridgeline, Dixie, Logan, Pine View, Salem Hills and Spanish Fork finishing in the top 10.
