Cody Tobias liked it once, so he tried it again. What he discovered was that twice is nice.
On Tuesday afternoon at the par-71 Royal Oaks Golf Course in Lebanon, Tobias repeated as the champion of Lebanon County scholastic golf. With his 71, Tobias. a senior out of Elco, was the only competitor to match par, as he edged teammate Blaine Weaver for the crown.
Tobias’ performance also propelled the Raiders to their second straight team title at the local event. With Tobias, Weaver and Ryan Woelfling posting the three lowest scores in the tournament, Elco easily out-distanced runner-up Palmyra for the collective crown.
The key to Tobias’ round was his fast start. He birdied four of his first six holes, and eventually got his round to five-under par.
Tobias is entertaining the possibilities of majoring in turf management and playing golf in college.
