Sometimes the best team doesn’t win. That’s why they play the game.
But sometimes the best player does win. That’s why he’s the best.
On Monday afternoon at Pine Meadows Golf Course, Cody Tobias simply reinforced a fact that some already knew – that he’s the top high school golfer in Lebanon County. Over the 5,734-yard, par-72 layout, the Elco junior earned the individual title at the Lebanon County Scholastic Golf Championship.
Tobias fired a very respectable one-over par 73 to top runner-up and teammate Ryan Woelfling by five strokes. A two-time District Three qualifier, Tobias’ outing also helped the Raiders to their first ever team crown at the event.
While Tobias’ showing was a bit of an up-and-down affair, there was certainly more good than bad about it. Over his round, Tobias carded five birdies, nine pars, two bogeys and two double bogeys.
Tobias also birdied Pine Meadows’ par-four 16th hole, its difficult par-four second hole by driving the green and the par-five fifth.
