Few sports seem more suited for a pandemic then golf. The sport allows comparators to walk a course outside in isolation.
Golf has so far been allowed to go on this summer, and Fulshear state finalist Tristan Gabbard continues to excel on the course.
Gabbard finished in first place at The Cypress Tradition event hosted by Texas Junior Golf Tour.
The event held on Monday and Tuesday at the Cypresswood Golf Club in Spring had golfers from ages 11 through 18.
Gabbard finished first overall in the standings with a two-day score of 145.
The sophomore Charger started strong with a three-under-par score of 69.
Gabbard birdied five of her first seven holes, shooting a 32 on the front nine for four-under-par.
She would add one more birdie on the final nine holes.
Gabbard had the four-stroke lead entering day two.
The Fulshear resident shot a 76 on day two to win by four strokes over Kingwood’s Rylie (76,73), West University Place’s Elizabeth Patrick (75,74) and Houston’s Denise Pan (74, 75) who tied for second with a score of 149.
Gabbard added another birdie on hole No. 17 on day two.
Gabbard’s high school season was cut short for the 2020 school year with the coronavirus pandemic suspending play before district play had started.
Missouri City’s Carmen Kennett (77,83—160) tied for 11th, Kacey Menyoli (76,85—161) and Leah Sterling (90,101—191) tied for 13th place.
