For the first time in 17 years, Roger Bacon has a golfer in the State Tournament.
Adam Trigg-Holdman ’21 tees off this morning at 10:50 AM in Columbus, OH. It is part of a two-day, 36-hold State Championship Weekend held at Ohio State
University Scarlet course today and tomorrow.He will be competing
against the best golfers in Ohio hoping to bring a State Championship
home to Roger Bacon.
Adam shot a season-best 76 at Glenview Golf Course last week which tied him for the third best score on the day. That 76 didn’t cut it fully though as it forced yet another playoff hole for Adam. But, just like the District Tournament playoff hole, Adam locked in and defeated his opponent to advance to the State Tournament! He shot a par on the playoff hole while his opponent from Waynesville bogeyed the hole.
Coach Rosenfeldt was overwhelmed with joy once Adam’s state ticket was punched as he stated, “what an honor it has been to coach Adam for the past couple of years, and to watch his progress and talent. Seeing his growth as a player, his course management, his intelligence, and his ability to control his emotions has something special this season. All in all, it has been the greatest season of Roger Bacon Golf in at least 20 years, and we look forward to Adam finishing it at State next week. What a great ride!”
Adam is the first golfer to qualify for the state match since Andrew Zeller ’05 qualified for 2003.
