TYLER GRAY’S RED-HOT summer included the Lugoff resident tying for sixth in last week’s CGA Junior Boys’ Championship.

Tyler Gray of Lugoff finished tied for sixth in the 67th Carolina Golf Association Junior Boys’ Championship played over The Windermere Club in Blythewood last Tuesday through Thursday.

Playing the searing heat, Gray, a rising junior at Thomas Sumter Academy and the defending SCISA state individual champion fired a three-round 218 which was 13 stokes off the winning pace set by Jacob Bridgeman of Inman.

A member of the Camden Country Club, Gray opened the tournament by firing an even-par 72 which was three strokes off the pace set by Bridgeman. Gray found himself tied for fourth place after carding a 71 last Wednesday for a two-round 143 total which was six shots off Bridgeman’s lead.

Gray, who sat ninth in the most recent South Carolina Junior Golf Association rankings, finished his tourney stay with a final round 75 for a 218-total. He carded the fourth lowest three-day score by a player from the Palmetto State.

The CGA championship was part of a busy spring and summer for the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder who finished second in the South Carolina Junior State Championships which followed a fifth at the fourth annual Jimmy Creed Invitational at the Camden Country Club and a runner-up finish in the Jimmy Self Junior Golf Tournament played over the Greenwood Country Club on June 4-5.
