NeSmith takes another win

North Augusta High’s Matt NeSmith capped his high school career by going out in style May 15.

NeSmith, 18, won the Class AAAA individual golf title at Furman University Golf Club. In the team competition, North Augusta tied for 10th place with 948.

The senior opened the 54-hole tournament May 14 with a pair of 3-under-par 69s to open up a five-shot lead.

He finished with 70 to finish at 8-under 208, which was good for an eight-shot triumph over his closest competitor. His winning total is the third best in the history of the tournament, which dates to 1939.

One of the top junior players in the country, NeSmith has played in the first two Junior Invitationals at Sage Valley events and has won multiple junior tournaments around the country.

NeSmith, who is committed to play at South Carolina, was also honored last week at the HP Byron Nelson Championship in Irving, Texas.
