Tiger Golf State Champions

Congratulations to the 2014 Leachman Buick GMC Cadillac/KHSAA State Golf Champions!  After two long days of playing in the biggest tournament of the year, the Tigers will return home with their program’s 19th state championship!

This is the first title since 2009, when PGA Tour Member Justin Thomas was a Junior on the Tiger Golf team.

Day 1 did not go as planned, but the Tigers are still dominating

Play was halted at the 2014 Leachman Buick GMC Cadillac/KHSAA State Golf Championship today due to heavy rainfall and standing water on the course, but before it was stopped around 5:00, the Tigers put up some great numbers.

As a team, the Tigers will be in first place when play is resumed tomorrow morning at 7:15 AM (CT) at Bowling Green Country Club.  Tiger Golf was +7 through 12-15 when play was held up.  Drew Kiehl is +3 through 15, Billy Basham is +1 through 15, Michael Sass is +2 through 12, Matt Liston is +4 through 12, and Allen Hamilton is +1 through 12.

Practice rounds will begin bright and early tomorrow morning at 6:30 AM (CT) following by play beginning at 7:15 AM (CT).  The Championship Round will follow the competition of the First Round, once the cut is made and the pairings are set according to the KHSAA’s Twitter account.


T10 – Allen Hamilton (+1)
T39- Matt Liston (+4)
T19 – Michael Sass (+2)
T10 – Billy Basham (+1)

The first round of the 2014 Leachman Buick GMC Cadillac/KHSAA State Golf Championship is upon us at Bowling Green Country Club.  Drew Kiehl, Billy Basham, Michael Sass, Matt Liston and Regional Champion Allen Hamilton represent the Tigers in state competition.

The Tigers won earlier this year at BGCC so they are very familiar with the course, but today’s rainy conditions may keep their scores a little higher than expected.  They dominated the Regional Tournament and look to repeat that performance over the next two days. We’ll keep you updated on what’s happening on the fairways and greens as often as possible via Twitter and the site.  Go Tigers!
