Watson State Golf

MacArthur High School freshman Cooper Watson, represented his school and Lawton Public Schools when he qualified as an individual for the OSSAA 5A Boy’s State Golf Tournament, May 8-9 at the Territory Golf and CC. 

 Watson, who qualified for State by shooting a 2-round total of 142 at the Regional Tournament, competed against some of the best players in the State in just his first year playing high school golf. 

In the 54-hole tournament, Watson started out strong, shooting his best round of the week during the first 18 holes. His first-round 78 was followed up by a 79 in the second round, which had him ninth place after 36-holes of play. Watson’s third round was not as solid (88), but the young Highlander represented his school well by finishing with a top-20 finish (t-17) and a score of 245. 

Bishop Kelley’s Will Hennessee won the individual State title with a score of 209, while the team State Championship went to MHS rival Duncan, who shot a team score of 915. 

Congratulations to Cooper on a great season, and we know we will see you and your team competing for a State Championship in 2024!
