No. 1 Bulldogs go for win No. 2

No. 1 Bulldogs go for win No. 2

No. 1 Mississippi Gulf Coast won the first MACJC event of the year last weekend, and the Bulldogs turn right back around this weekend and try to make it two in a row.

 

The teams will converge on Wesson to play at Copiah-Lincoln's Wolf Hollow Golf Course. The 36-hole tournament will be played Saturday and Sunday.

 

"It's a good golf course. Ronnie Ross, the coach over at Co-Lin, has done a great job," Gulf Coast coach Tommy Snell said. "It's a good test because they have several different kinds of holes. They have some long holes, some tight holes. They have virtually two island greens."

 

Jackson Wedgeworth (So., West Jones/Soso) won medalist by shooting 10-under in Raymond, and Gulf Coast came back from a first-round deficit to beat Meridian by eight shots.

 

Wedgeworth has continued to play well this week during qualifying, and he figures to be part of the six- or seven-person group. The top five will comprise the Bulldogs' team, with other remaining player or players will be individuals.

 

"Jackson is leading by a million," Snell said. "He's playing real well, and he's working hard. He's working really hard."

 

Gulf Coast will host the next MACJC event at Grand Bear Golf Course the middle of October. This weekend, they'll need to use their brains in Wesson.

 

"We've played well there in the past," Snell said. "We've won region there in the past. We typically play well there because we look at two or three holes you really have to be careful on, and the guys are pretty good about playing them correctly. They'll hit the smart club."
