Alexander competes at State Golf Tournament
The University of Interscholastic League’s Boy’s 2A State Golf Tournament was held in Kingsland at Legends Golf Course on May 17 and 18. The course is located on Lake LBJ and was masterfully designed by Tom Kite, Roy Bechtol and Randy Russell.
Junior Drew Alexander would tee off on Monday with less than desirable conditions forecasted as it was to be windy and wet. On his first hole of the tournament, he would par. Following another par, the third hole of the day would give him trouble as he went out of bounds and then played a shot from the water for double bogey. He would immediately refocus and par the following hole. After parring five, he would birdie hole six which was comprised of a long par 5 that dog-legged to the right. A par three that had a tree overhanging for left-handed golfers gave him some trouble off the tee box but his good second shot helped him to only lose a stroke. On this long links-style course, he would post three over par, 39, on the front nine.
He would be shooting even par on the back when the golfers were forced to mark their balls and leave the course due to lightning. After having driven next to the green with birdie opportunity awaiting Alexander would take another hour and a half break before play could resume.
