Then he saw first-hand how difficult the Mystic Creek Golf Club can be.
Chambers shot an 85 in his final high school round of golf Tuesday in El Dorado.
“It wasn’t the best; I’m kind of disappointed with how it ended,” Chambers said. “(But) I got to play on a really nice course. I’m proud of myself for pushing through the challenges Mystic Creek threw at me.”
Chambers knew following Monday’s practice round he was in for a difficult course. “It’s the hardest course I’ve played on,” he said.
Lakeside’s Will Gordon shot a 73 to lead the Rams to the overall team title. Jon Brooks Elia was a distant second (77).
Chambers finished one stroke short of earning all-state.
Chambers said he’s weighing his options for college.
“I’m looking at some colleges,” he said. “I’m still figuring out where I want to go.”
