Murphy shot a 39 and again was match medalist. He is the top golfer in the American Division by 34 strokes.

“Jack had four bogeys but really did put together a good score, having to fight some swing thoughts to maneuver his way to a solid 39.”

“The kids played well on a very difficult course,” CM coach Phil Larrick said.”It’s nice to see the improvement.”
