Individually, a pair of local golfers stood out at or near the top at the Goodyear Wingfoot Classic in Union City on Tuesday.

South Fulton’s Chase Mayfield was the overall boys’ champion with a 69 — four shots ahead of his closest competitor. Meanwhile, Union City’s Mollie Stone came to the clubhouse with an 81 — good enough for second place overall and just two strokes off the pace of first-place Morgan Todd (Henry County).

Aside from the individual standouts, the South Fulton boys were fourth overall with a team total of 348. The UC guys claimed sixth with a 360, while the Obion Central boys finished seventh with a 362.

Red Devil Hunter Hutchins carded an 87, while Hunter Faulkner finished at 95 and J.B. Graves came in with a 97 to round out the team’s scoring. The Twister golf team had Josh McManus with a team-low 83 and Britton Bugg at 89. Additionally, Clay Treece finished with a 91, while Turner Ams totaled a 97.

Twister golf coach Jason Qualls lauded the staff at the Goodyear Wingfoot course for their hospitality and for hosting the event.

The Rebel boys had Cameron Green with an 84 and Garrett Booth at 85. Trevor Riley came off the Goodyear course with a 95, while Ryan Middlebrook’s scorecard told of a 98.
