Muleshoe’s Turnbow claims state championship

Senior shoots 73, takes Class 2A golf title by five strokes

Posted: May 11, 2011 - 1:39am

AUSTIN — Tyson Turnbow made the most of his last appearance at the Class 2A state golf tournament.

The Muleshoe senior, who fell one stroke shy of qualifying for last year’s state tourney and was competing there for the first time since his freshman year, won by five strokes this time around. Turnbow shot 2-over-par 73 on Tuesday at Roy Kizer Golf Course, extending his first-round lead by four shots.

“It feels good to go out on a good note like that,” said Turnbow, who will continue

his golfing career at Midland College.

Turnbow, who shot 75 in Monday’s first round, finished with a two-round score of 148. Wall’s Garrett Smith placed second at 153.

Turnbow had a roller coaster start to Tuesday’s round, birdieing the first hole but then making triple-bogey 8 on No. 2. He was even par the rest of the way, birdieing

No. 7 and making bogey at No. 10.

Turnbow finished with nine consecutive pars and played with a fairly comfortable lead down the stretch.

“With about four holes to go, my coach (Carey Sudduth) let me know I had a three-shot lead,” he said. “I figured if I parred out I’d be in good shape. Then on the 18 tee box he let me know I had a five-shot lead, so I was pretty comfortable going into last hole.”

The convincing win wasn’t surprising to Turnbow, who tied for fifth place at state as a freshman. He said he had been striking the ball well for the last month, so he arrived in Austin with confidence in his game.

He played another game during his trip. Turnbow also competed in the 2A state tennis tournament on Monday, winning

his quarterfinal match before losing in the semifinals.

“It was a lot of fun,” he said. “I’m pretty satisfied.”
