Chilton County High School’s golf team won the county tournament Thursday at Clanton Country Club, and the Tigers also swept the first, second and third individual finishes.

CCHS’s golfers combined for a 298 score to best Jemison’s 363 and Thorsby’s 422.

Isabella also competed.

CCHS sophomore Cole Watley claimed the individual championship by shooting 73.

Watley was followed closely by teammates Jordan Lightsey (74), Bailey Price (75) and Trey Baker (76).

Watley shot an even par on the front nine, including back-to-back birdies on holes 6 and 7.

On Hole 6, his shot with a pitching wedge off the tee box left him with a 12-foot putt.

On Hole 7, his approach with a pitching wedge gave him a 5-foot putt for birdie.

Watley barely held onto the lead on the back nine, as he shot five-over par as Lightsey charged from behind.

Watley learned he needed to par final two holes for the win. A difficult pin position on Hole 2 led to his birdie putt rolling downhill past the hole by about 6 feet.

He sank the par putt for the win.

“It’s hard not to focus on everybody else and what they’re doing,” Watley said. “You just try to play the course and not your competitors.”

Watley thanked the team’s seniors, Lightsey and Jacob Hay, and coach Ryan Price for their guidance throughout the season.

Jemison’s top scorer was Brandon Stokes with an 83, Isabella’s top scorer was Trey Vessicchio with a 96 and Thorsby’s top scorer was Colton Castleberry with a 102.
