Zionsville senior Adam Wood added another title to his resume on Saturday, May 10, taking medalist honors at the Westfield Invite at Prairie View Golf Course.
Wood shot a 70 to take the honors.
Zionsville head coach Steve Simmons said it can be hard for Wood, ranked as one of the top high schoolers in the nation, to consistently win one-day tournaments because there is so much that can happen in a single round of golf.
Yet, he has still won at least "15-20" and "maybe more" according to Simmons in his four years. He has also added a win in the lone two-day tournament for IHSAA golfers, the state finals.
"If we played all three-round tournaments, over the course of three rounds he would beat most players because he plays consistently so great," Simmons said. "It is harder when you have 80 players just playing one round. Anyone can get hot on any team. He played a really strong round on Saturday. He had five birdies and he may have been a little disappointed because he had a few more bogeys than he normally does, but it was a strong round."
As a team, the Eagles placed fifth in the tournament with a team score of 316.
Carmel won with a team score of 297.
"It was sort of an uneven round for us," Simmons said. "I can't really put a finger on any one thing we did poorly. Adam and Clark (Tiller) gave us what we hoped for. Our 3, 4 and 5 guys didn't play as well as we had hoped or they wanted. They struggled a little bit and when you struggle in a field like that you are going to drop some places."
