After two golf courses and 36 holes, Braydon Schindler, a Northfield High School senior, took home the Wabash County Amateur Golf Tournament champion title the weekend of July 25-26.
Approximately 39 golfers of all ages participated in the two-day tournament began which began on Saturday July 25 at the Honeywell Golf Course. It concluded the following day at Etna Acres Golf Course.
Schindler, 17, shot 71 on first day and 77 on the second, with an overall 148 total for the competition.
It just felt good to win champion, Schindler said.
“I’ve played in this twice now and the first time I didn’t play very good at all,” he continued. “And I’ve come so close in the club championship a few times so it just felt good to finally pull through and win.”
