Oliver Gearlds, a Triton Central junior, has been playing golf in the US Kids Golf Tournament.
The U.S. Kids Golf Local Tours are created to provide boys and girls, ages 5 to 18, the opportunity to advance their skills in the game in age-appropriate competition without having to take the time and incur the costs of having to travel long distances. A Local Tour consists of between six and eight one-day tournaments including a season-ending one-day Local Tour Championship. Players earn awards and points for each tournament.
On Sunday Gearlds was at the Eagle Creek Golf Course for the Boys 15-18 age group Fall Tournament Series Championship match. He placed first for the day.
Gearlds was also awarded the Indianapolis Fall Local Tour Champion trophy for his performance during the tournament which consisted of eight golf matches at various golf courses in the area.
