How fun have the opening matches of the Davie golf season been? Consider: New coach Scott Spillman’s War Eagles started with an 11-1 win in match play. Then they shot 4-over at Pudding Ridge on March 5 and 3-over at Oak Valley on March 7.

At Pudding Ridge, Beck Owen and Evan Owen, senior twins who have transferred in, shot even-par 35s as Davie defeated South Iredell by 20 strokes, 144-164. Carter Spillman and Landon Packard rounded out Davie’s dominating score with 37s.

The War Eagles were still on fire at Oak Valley, where they beat Calvary 147-164. The scorching score was a testament to E. Owen and Cooper Drum’s 1-under 35s, Spillman’s 36 and Anderson Beliveau’s 38.

The top four were so good Davie didn’t need B. Owen’s 39 and 41s from Sean Coates, Griffin Russell and Stephen Vernon.
