Moore sets record, Bozeman and CMR take home team titles

Posted: Updated:

When asked after his round if he knew the record was close, Billings West golfer Joey Moore smiled a little. Standing on the 18th tee box, already ten shots ahead of the rest of the Class AA field at Buffalo Hills Golf Club on Wednesday, he didn't have to test it. Last season, he went -10 under to win his first state title. When he reached 18, he was -9 under. 

He pulled out his driver, and around a wicked dogleg left, put his drive within two feet of a hole-in-one. 

"It's just the way I play," Moore said afterwords. "Aggressive."

Moore made his eagle putt, and set a new Montana Class AA record of a two-day total of 133, beating his old record by one stroke. He went into the final round leading by five strokes, and was never challenged the entire day. 

CMR, who had not won a title since 2003, won the boys title, upsetting Billings West, who was looking to win their fifth title in a row. Four of their five golfers finished in the top fifteen, paced by second place finisher Duncan Hollar, who finished a stunning 13 shots behind Moore. 

""We had a lot of support coming from the school, we had a lot of rivalry with Great Falls being right there too, but it's great." Hollar said. "We knew that Great Falls was mostly likely going to bring one back, and it's great knowing that it is us."

On the girls side, Bozeman Hawk junior Laurel Ward went wire to wire, finishing six shots better than her teammate Annika Danenhauer. It was Ward's first ever state title win, and something she could barely believe herself.

"It's just means the world. I would never of thought this would have happened." Ward said afterwords. "If you had told me at the beginning of the season, I would of thought you were crazy. This is truly an incredible experience and feeling."

Ward ended up taking two state titles home to Bozeman with her. The Bozeman girls won the state title, beating second place Billings West by 86 strokes. Bozeman placed all five of their golfers in the top eight, including going one, two, and three with Ward, Danenhauer, and Kameryn Basye. 

"We have a great team this year. We know how to laugh together, and we just have the best time playing golf together. They are just a great group of girls and a great group of guys. They've earned it this year, and they get the same amount of credit as I do, they've earned it this year." Ward said.
