3A boys' golf: Schow leads Park City to sixth straight title
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Mitch Schow confidently lined up his last putt. The stout redhead from Park City adjusted his ball's lie in the misting cold at Mountain Dell Golf Course. The sophomore deftly drained the 5-footer Thursday.

Schow carded a tournament-low 68 on Thursday to go with his opening-round 69 to capture the individual state championship with a two-day score of 137.

More importantly, Schow secured Park City's sixth consecutive team title.

"He's something else — a pretty incredible player," teammate Jalen Roberts said. "Mitch is not only fun to play with but more importantly, he makes this entire team better."

In conditions reminiscent of Scotland, Schow battled the rain and cold with six birdies in a near perfect performance. With only one double bogey, Schow's improved upon last years fifth-place finish to grab first place.

"I always go out there to shoot par, and today I was able to beat it," Schow said. "It was an amazing round in some pretty tough conditions."

Dixie finished second in the team standings. Flyers Nick Britt and Taylor Yardley tied for third at 147, to help Dixie finish as state runner-up.

Desert Hills' Taylor Cummings braved the weather to shoot 73-72—145 for a second-place finish. His precision with his driver and putter kept him out of trouble, and he plans to use his finish as motivation for next year.

"Park City needs to know that we're coming after them," Cummings said. "It was a tough tournament, but we're going back to work tomorrow."

Desert Hills finished third.

Park City coach George Murphy was thrilled with his team's performance, especially under daunting conditions.

"I haven't seen weather like this is awhile, and to have our guys go out and make par was brilliant," he said. "We knew it was critical to come out with a quicker start than [Wednesday]." —
