FIFTH FLIGHT: Casey Ellis d. Cedell Alexander, 4 and 2
Rougemont’s Casey Ellis took care of Durham’s Cedell Alexander 4 and 2 in the fifth flight.
Ellis, a Northern High graduate who is studying electronic media production at High Point University, said he was able to get into a groove as the tournament went on.
“I didn't qualify great,” Ellis said. “I just was able to get a little bit better each day and was able to come out on top.”
Ellis, 20, said he was able to land shots around the 100-yard mark and putt for birdies and pars.
“Just a casual golfer,” Ellis said, describing his game.
Ellis said he thought about joining the club golf team at High Point, but his class schedule won't allow him to spend that kind of time on the fairways and greens.
“I just play golf for fun,” Ellis said.
