Convincing win for Johnson County golf team

1:29 am | September 10, 2013

RedTail Mountain Links was the site of one “red hot” golf team on Monday afternoon in Mountain City. Coach Steve Arnold’s Longhorns shot a season’s best in their win over Sullivan East.

The Longhorns recorded a 162, which topped the Patriots’ 184. Arnold was elated with his team’s play, especially after a weekend off.

“We’ve had a three-day layoff since our last meet at Graysburg,” said Arnold. “We played pretty well over there, but our best so far was today. If we had shot this well, we could have beaten Daniel Boone. I don’t think another team in our district has a stronger No. 5 or 6 player than we do. That’s where you win 95 percent of your matches. Today our bottom two shot a 42 apiece. You don’t have 1s on some teams shooting that good.”
