Heading into the back nine of Wednesday’s District 9-5A golf tournament, several teams still had a shot at the title.

In the end, it was Memorial who was able to claim the championship, as its two-day total of 656 (317-339) was enough to hold off Centennial (313-347—660) and Liberty (326-335—661) at The Bridges Golf Course in Gunter.

The Titans held a four-stroke lead after the first round, but while several teams saw their scores rise on the second day, the Warriors were able to catch them at the end.

A big part of Memorial’s success was its balance as it placed three golfers in the top seven.

Nathan Pheng (78-81—159) and Garrett Cox (75-84—159) were part of a four-way tie for third place among all individuals, while Jackson Malone (80-82—162) came through in seventh.

Liberty’s Mitchell Kalka and Centennial’s Waase Iqbal shared the individual title as each finished plus-13 at the end of two rounds.

Iqbal fired the best round of the tournament by any player with an even-par 72 on the opening day. Kalka was right on his heels with a first-day 76 and was able to pull into a tie for the top spot on the final 18.

Wakeland’s Will Livermore (81-178—159) and Frisco’s Corey Maher (77-82—159) were part of the four-way tie for third place. Rounding out the top 10 were Centennial’s Rohan Sinha (78-85—163) in eighth, Independence’s Jaxon Copeland (82-82—164) in ninth and Independence’s Luke Wagstaff (86-79—165) in 10th place.
