WHISPERING PINES— Kernersville Bishop McGuinness won its fourth consecutive state team championship on Tuesday in the 17th annual North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 1-A men’s golf championships at Whispering Pines Country Club.

Bishop McGuinness, which entered the final day with a 23-shot lead over East Surry in the team standings, blew it open by recording a 294 on Tuesday for a 595 total. The Villains were a whopping 54 strokes ahead of second-place East Surry, while Mooresville Pine Lake Prep and Riverside (Martin) were knotted at third at 661.
The best four of six individual scores counted toward the team total.

The course was set at par 72 and 6,609 yards for the NCHSAA event.

Tanner Owen of Bishop McGuinness had a two-under par 70 in the final round for a 142 total, winning the individual championship for the second consecutive year. Owen finished one shot ahead of Chance Watson of Avery.

There was a tie for third place in the individual standings, and East Surry’s Jordan Vogler birdied the first playoff hole to take third and Logan Wynne of Riverside was fourth. Vogler had a brilliant three-under 69 on Tuesday while Wynne came in at 70 as the pair tied at 145, three shots off the pace.

Prior to 1986, all NCHSAA schools competed for a single title in an open tournament. Play went to three classifications in 1986 and then to four classes beginning with the 1998 tournaments.

A total of 84 golfers began play in the two-day tournament.
