2B Boys Golf: Tabor trades tools of ignorance, shoots under par for Kalama | Sports

WOODLAND – Todd Tabor came out and proved he was no trick pony on Wednesday when he went one under par over nine holes to lead the Kalama Chinooks over Wahkiakum and Ilwaco in a game of golf for boys.

With the district tournament fast approaching, the three teams gathered at the Lewis River Golf Course for a non-league tune-up. The Chinooks won the day with a score of 185 while Wahkiakum recorded a 210. Ilwaco only brought in three players and had no official score.

Even though it had been over several months since he last competed with his high school team during the fall season, Tabor didn’t look any worse. The Kalama eldest shot a 34 to earn match medalist honors even as he finds himself in the midst of a successful campaign on the baseball field.

“He was hitting the ball extremely well,” Kalama coach Doug Maynard said. “What was surprising was that we really didn’t practice a lot, so he obviously put in some time during the winter, and he’s also the catcher for the high school baseball team, so he put in time that way too.”
