Best shot: Freshman Jordan Bohannon is a top golfer for Southfield High. - Craig Lewis

With an 8-0 record, the Boys Golf team won its league championship.

"We had good golfers," said Golf Coach Greg McDowell. "The best golfer was freshman Jordan Bohannon."

Bohannon added a fresh spark to the team this year, McDowell said.

The rookie shot a 35 during a recent match against Hazel Park High School."That’s the lowest I’ve ever received on that course," Bohannon said. "I’ve been playing since (age) 5 or 6, and my dad was the main person teaching me."

Bohannan was the only golfer from the team to qualify for regionals this year.

Senior Michael Harden, who shot a 36 in the same match against Hazel Park, says the team’s undefeated record can be attributed to new and better players, such as Bohannon. Southfield has defeated teams such as Southfield-Lathrup, PontiacFerndale and Hazel Park.

Besides Bohannan and Harden, other strong golfers this year are seniors Julian Houston, Kyler Johnson and David Kilgore, McDowell said.

I play golf with this kid, and he is amazing when it comes to golf. He is a great player and a great teammate. He has put much work in his sport, and he is a very dedicated golfer. I hope he goes very far in his golf career and I know he will carry the team. Good luck, Jordan, and have fun with it.

This is probably the best record Southfield High School has ever had. Hopefully we will be able to make it to states.
