Davis posts 33 in Tiger Cubs' win

Friday, May 4, 2012

Greencastle High School boy's golf defeated Monrovia and Cascade on a beautiful Thursday night at Windy Hill Country Club, downing their opponents 146-179-216. Alec Davis led the Tiger Cubs with a two-under 33 for the day, while Justin Franchville paced Cascade with a five-over 40.

The first group teed off and immediately a rivalry developed between Brad Haussin, Greencastle's No. 1, and Franchville, his counterpart from Cascade. Each sent shots down the middle of the fairway, but Haussin would send a beautiful approach shot within inches of the hole. After Haussin's birdie putt, Davis sent a similar shot downrange, sending an equally impressive approach shot onto the green, which he downed for a birdie as well.

Davis would go on to take a three on the par-three fourth hole, but his most impressive challenge came on the par-three sixth. With the first group averaging a bogey just moments before, Davis managed to escape with a two-stroke birdie. Even with his teammate Haussin following a par on the seventh hole, Davis went on to pick up two fours compared to Hassin's fives to win the tournament. Davis was inches away from a three-under, missing his would-be final putt on the last hole.

"I think all of the guys shot really well today," head coach Steve Paquin said. "It was unfortunate Alec couldn't sink that last putt on the ninth."

The senior Haussin shot a par (35) on the day, coming in second place overall. Tanner Dean and Raymond Stinson followed with plus fours of their own, Luke Brotherton ended with a 42, Derick Thomas a 45 and Adam Jayne rounded out the scoring with a 47.
