Local residents Wes Cottingim, Jonathan Decker, Granville Meredith, and Barry Wood were coached by Kayla Meredith, from Midway University Lady Eagles golf team, in the Midway University Golf Scramble on Saturday. This is an annual tournament to raise money for the Midway golf program, and was held at the University of Kentucky Big Blue Course. Team Kayla, also known as the “Steep Hollar Hackers”, went into the tournament striving to finish in the top 10.
The team was extremely proud of two holes, the first of which were Jonathan Decker hit a massive drive on a par 5, leaving it to Wes Cottingim to hit a hybrid shot within approximately 8 feet of the cup, where Barry Wood then drained it for an Eagle. The other hole was a par 4 that again Jonathan drove the green again and Granville drained the Eagle putt.
The hole of the day went to Wes Cottingim where he birdied a par 3 by himself. After that round, Granville and Barry named Wes the player of the tournament, but this did not sit well with Jonathan. He voted himself player of the tournament because according to him, he “packed the team.” Wes didn’t complain, so they were crowned Co-Players of the tournament.
The Steep Hollar Hackers finished their round 21 under par, finishing in 6th place.
Kayla Meredith and The Steep Hollar Hackers would like to thank the following hole sponsors: Greg Meredith of Meredith Mowing Service, Greg Nugent for his continuous support to Kayla, and JC Ramsey of Shady Hollow Golf Course.
“These three sponsors have been beside Kayla since she first started golf and they continue to support her,” said Granville Meredith. “She is honored to have such great support team. “
