Golf | Ben Tyrrell
Tyrrell, a junior for the Edwardsville boys’ golf team, is enjoying a fabulous start to his season.
Through five EHS tournaments, Tyrrell has been medalist in three of them. His biggest showing came on Aug. 27 when he fired a 5-under-64 at the St. Viator Invite at Old Orchard Country Club in Chicagoland to be the top dog. It was his career best in an 18-hole tournament and it came against talented competition.
The effort has earned Tyrrell the Edwardsville AdVantage News Athlete of the Week award.
He also was medalist at the Redbirds’ Tee-Off Classic with a 66 at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course in Alton on Aug. 16 and at the Madison County Tournament with a 67 on Aug. 18 at Belk Park Golf Course in Wood River.
As a team, the Tigers entered the week at 5-0 overall in dual matches this season and 3-0 in the Southwestern Conference.
