UIL State Golf Tournament Local Qualifiers and Results

Area golfers compete for the gold at State

BEAUMONT, Texas — The 2020-21 UIL athletic season is nearing its end, but there's still plenty of athletes competing from the 409.

The UIL Boys 4A State Tournament was completed this afternoon at Plum Creek located in Kyle. Little Cypress-Mauriceville improved on their opening day performance to finish seventh, while 2019 State Champion Jack Burke just missed out on a medal.

The future Texas State Bobcat finished tied for fourth with a score of 108. That was just one stroke back of third, and seven back of Wimberley's Jaxon Donaldson who captured this years title. 

The 2021 4A team championship went to Argyle.
