Greenwood High School boys golf coach Chip Whitt has an interesting way of setting the tone for his team’s matches.
He observes the conditions before match time and sets a goal for his Eagles to score.
Before Wednesday’s match against cross-town rival Emerald on the Vikings’ home course, Greenwood Country Club, Whitt decided 155 would be good.


His Eagles, though, had other plans.
Led by medalist Sam Ramsey, who carded a career best for 9-hole play, a 1-under-par 35, Whitt’s team scored a 148, which was 8 strokes better than Emerald’s 156. It was the second time Greenwood scored in the 140s for a 9-hole match this season. The Eagles’ best 9-hole team score of the year was a 146 on Greenwood’s home course, the Links at Stoney Point.
