Stansbury’s Braydon Griffith certainly knows his way around the Stansbury Park Golf Course, and he showed off that course knowledge in a big way during Thursday’s Region 10 golf match.
Griffith shot a blistering 3-under par 69 over the 18-hole round, the only player to break par during the round. He finished four strokes ahead of runner-up Caden Dunn of Cedar Valley, with Tooele’s Ashden Morrill another stroke back in third place. Cedar Valley’s Jackson Shippen shot 75 and finished fourth, and Stansbury’s Peyton Thevenot tied with Uintah’s Kamon Anderson and Ryan Abplanalp for fifth place at 78. Tooele’s Luke Begnaud and Ogden’s Coltin Powell tied for eighth at 79, and Tooele’s Cache Holmes and Cedar Valley’s Dallin Weierholt shot 80 and tied for 10th.
