STRONG FINISH: Seymour senior golfer concludes season in regional play


The 16th hole claimed more than a couple of golfers during Thursday’s regional tournament at Champions Pointe.

Unfortunately for Seymour’s Tyler Bullard, he was one of them.

Competing as an individual, the recently graduated Bullard finished his front nine with a 1-under-par 35, leaving himself well positioned to earn one of the five state qualifying spots.

He was still in good shape with three holes to go before a triple-bogey on the 16th torpedoed his hopes of advancing. Bullard bogeyed the final two holes to finish at 78.

“The first nine went pretty well,” Bullard said. “I made putts and hit the ball pretty well. The back nine, I didn’t hit the ball as well as the front, putts weren’t falling, but I managed to scrape it around.”

Despite coming up short in his bid to reach the state finals, Bullard – who will play football at the University of Indianapolis in the fall – was pleased with how he fared in his final competitive round of golf.

“I didn’t think I was going to play nearly this well,” he said.
