Golfers fire away at PCHS Athletic Fundraiser

The ending of the annual Polk County High School Athletic Fundraiser golf tourney didn’t stun many who participated.

“It’s no surprise his team won,” one player said with a smile.

He would be Brian Jones, and he and teammates Will Ballard, Marc Ballard and David Foster posted a net score of 52 to take top honors in the fundraiser at Links O’Tryon.

The Jones team also posted the low gross score with a 56.

A picture-perfect afternoon greeted the field, each taking part to help raise funds for Polk County’s athletic programs. More than 50 players teed off in a shotgun start on the Links course.

The team of Todd Murphy, Wade King, Billy Alm and Josh Money placed second with a net 53.

Three members of Polk County’s boys golf team – Casey Beiler, Avery Harden and Reilly Yoder – teamed with Andrew Beiler to shoot a gross score of 57, the day’s second-lowest.

Lisa Kurjan finished closest to the pin on holes four and seven while King was closest on the 12th hole and Charley Dusenbury had the best shot on the 15th.
