Sprague sophomore Quincy Beyrouty finished tied for 18th at the 2017 6A OSAA State Golf Championship. The two day tournament was held at Emerald Valley Golf Club in Creswell, OR.
Beyrouty posted an 81 on day one of the tournament which had her in 15th placed headed into round 2. The second round of the tournament will be remembered for lousy weather and for the length of time it took to complete the round. Beyrouty, playing in the third to last group in round 2, teed off at 9:00AM but didn’t finish her round until just before 5:30PM.
Playing in a steady drizzle to start Beyrouty was +4 through her first four holes, as her group approached the green of the par 3 5th hole the rain turned from a drizzle to a downpour. Beyrouty managed a two putt par and headed to the par 4 6th. After the foursome played their tee shots on 6 play was suspended because of standing water on the greens.
There was a lengthy delay before play was restarted, Beyrouty made bogeys on 6 and 7 and then played her tee shot on the par 4th before play was again suspended, this time due to lightning. When play resumed Beyrouty hit her 2nd shot on the 8th almost 90 minutes after her tee shot and promptly hit it a foot from the hole and tapped in for birdie. A par on the 9th gave her a 41 on the front 9.
The back nine was didn’t go as well, the sophomore was +7 through the first five holes on the back before making birdie on the 15th. The field average was almost two strokes over par on the 336 yard par 4, Beyrouty’s 3 was the only birdie on the 15th in round 2. She made par on 17 before finishing the day with a double bogey on 18 and a 45 on the back nine.
Beyrouty finished the round +14 (86), her two day total was 167. Her 18th place finish was 10 spots ahead of her 28th place finish as a freshman in 2016 and was the highest for an Olympian since Deanna Salvatori finished 14th as a senior in 2014. Salvatori also had a top 10 finish as a junior in 2013 with a pair of 75’s (150) which was good enough for a 5th place finish.
