There is Davie’s golf team.

Then there is a massive gap.

And then there is everyone else.

Davie’s monster season resumed at Winding Creek on April 10. For the fourth time in four league meets, the War Eagles beat the second-place team by at least eight strokes.

The scores at Winding Creek: Davie 12-over 156, Reagan/West Forsyth 166, Mt. Tabor 169, Reynolds 170, East Forsyth 173.

For the season, Davie stands at 601, or 46 shots ahead of second-place West. Reagan is third at 657.

Carter Spillman paced Davie at 1-over 37. The sophomore tied for third overall and shot 1-over or better for the third time. Beck Owen (39) tied for fifth and broke 40 for the eighth time in as many tries. Landon Packard and Anderson Beliveau turned in 40s as Davie put four guys in the top nine.

“They had just punched the greens, so we didn’t see many putts go in,” coach Scott Spillman said of Davie’s 12-over score.

In the CPC’s individual race, five War Eagles are in the top 10. B. Owen is tied for second and one shot off the pace. His twin brother, Evan Owen, is fourth. Beliveau is tied for fifth, Packard is seventh and Spillman is tied for ninth.
