MOREHEAD Taylor Webb did not pridefully parade around Eagle Trace Golf Course.
No, Boyle County’s boys golf coach — and 2009 West Carter alumnus — didn’t strut after Saturday’s Eagle Trace Invitational tournament at Morehead State University’s home course. He was instead quietly content as he watched the Rebels take the team title by 10 shots over Greenup County.
Boyle County’s win was more sugary because his younger brother, Tyson Webb, plays for West Carter, and his father Terrell is the Comets’ coach.
“I’m just gonna rub it in their face a little bit,” Taylor Webb said. “We try to get ’em a little closer to Boyle County.”
Terrell Webb said “we will take every bit of it.”
“Dads and sons, we’re just proud of him, really proud,” Terrell said. “This is his second tournament to win; he won one a couple weeks ago in Danville.”
It helped Boyle County to have two of the top three individual finishers. Colten Wilson and William Carr shot 2-under-par 70s. (Wilson won a scorecard playoff because he birdied the 376-yard par-4 18th hole.)
“It’s been a pretty big rivalry,” Wilson said. “We’ve been friends all our lives, but we’ve definitely gone head-to-head.”
Wilson and Carr arrived at the same place but in decidedly different ways. “I had six birdies and an eagle and six bogeys,” Wilson said. “He had 16 pars and two birdies.”
Terrell Webb said he’ll be asking Taylor for pointers.
“I’ve been doing that for quite a while, so absolutely,” Terrell said. “From a coaching standpoint, really not too much. I just mean from golf in general … It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to beat him on a golf course; he knows what he’s doing. I’m really proud of him.”
Smiles for Liles
Lewis County’s Logan Liles topped everyone with a 3-under 69. It was his third win this season — he also won at Old Bridge Golf Club in Danville and at Bellefonte Country Club in Ashland.
With the Region 12 tournament coming up in four weeks in Mount Sterling, Liles said his preparation is a little ahead of schedule.
“There’s still a lot of work that needs to be done,” he said. “ … Just little tune-ups here and there with some iron shots, especially with the longer irons in the bag. I feel pretty good with the driver.”
Greenup County brothers Drew and Dylan Stultz sometimes display different emotions; They were mostly synchronous with their woods, irons and putters — both fired 1-under 71s.
“It’s fun to come out here in high school golf and compete,” Drew Stultz said. “We’re competitive in every sport we’ve ever played, even just pick-up basketball.”
Their dad, Greenup County coach Brad Stultz, believes his sons are as different as a driver and a putter.
“Drew is way more serious and carries things along too long; sometimes it goes from hole to hole,” Brad Stultz said. “Dylan is … a lot more carefree; he hits a bad shot, he moves on.”
Expecting more of himself and beating himself up if he falls short is the way Drew has always been. He said Dylan is teaching him to relax.
“He’s helped to just go out and enjoy the game,” Drew said.
Dylan Stultz had three birdies and two bogeys. Drew topped that — he said five birdies and an eagle.
Having the same score didn’t prevent Dylan from lobbing a verbal bon mot at Drew.
“I get to talk trash,” Dylan said. “He’s only beaten me two tournaments this year, two or three.”
Drew has a ready reply.
“It’s gotta be how much further I hit the ball than him,” he said.
Mason County, Scott County and Montgomery County rounded out the top five teams. East Carter finished 11th, West Carter tied Mercer County for 15th, Ashland was 17th, Russell was 18th, Boyd County was 19th and Fleming County was 21st.
Montgomery County’s Logan McCormick and Scott County’s Ethan Flanders also turned in a 71.
