Rhodes Ends Great Golf Career at the State Tournament

Coach Joyner's recap-

Is there a better way to end a career than at a state tournament? Kobe has meant a great deal to Glenwood golf the past 4 years and I thank him for his contributions. 

On Thursday, Kobe struggled to get off the tee and it seemed like he hit every single tree on the course. I'm really proud of the way he fought through the day. He played really well around the green, but needed 1 putts for pars only hitting 3 greens all day. He finished the day +10, 82 in a tie for 25th.

On Friday, we started at 8:15 and it seemed like the bad things from Thursday were still happening. Kobe just couldn't find his swing. He carded a +8, 44 on the front nine. Then the second nine happened. Kobe found his swing that has been there all year and started hitting fairways and greens! He ended up shooting an even par 2nd nine and finished at +8, 80 for the day. 162 for the tournament and tied for 22nd overall.
