Miners golf dominates regionals, awaiting state tournament

Miners golfer Sam Hunt eyes a putt during their home match this season. Hunt and Park City just dominated regionals, and have the state tournament on the horizon.

The Miners boys golf team continued their dominance on Monday, overpowering familiar competition at regionals en route to a title. Park City unsurprisingly cleared the second place Murray Spartans by 16 strokes, another of their many wide-margin victories of the season. 

Up next for the Miners is the state tournament, which will be hosted next week at The Ridge Golf Club, where regionals was. Head Coach George Murphy said he will have his boys ready to capitalize on their familiarity with the course, momentum on the season and more. 

Park City last hoisted a state trophy back in 2018, and so they surely know exactly what winning it will require next Wednesday and Thursday. After all, the Miners have arguably the best coach and program to ever do it in the state of Utah. 

Murphy has had his players honed in on the day-to-day processes of a state title run for weeks now. At a practice merely weeks ago, a few of Park City’s star ball strikers expressed the team’s ability to stay in the moment and improve where they need to despite all of their winning ways thus far. 

The Ridge is under an hour away from Park City, for any parents or fanatics looking to make the trip for state. A win would vault the Miners to the top spot in Utah high school history, marking their 16th state title and breaking the tie with Richfield.
