Red suited Daniel Patterson just fine Wednesday, during the final round of the 3A district boys golf tournament on the Tri-Mountain golf course in Ridgefield.
“A lot of people liked the pants,” said the Camas High School senior. “I didn’t want to be boring out there.”
After shooting a two-day total of 153 strokes, Patterson won a playoff hole to earn a one-way ticket to the state tournament. He struggled through the first few holes Wednesday, before chipping in an eagle out of the sand on seven.
“That one shot turned my whole round around,” Patterson said. “It definitely feels good to be going straight to state this year. I had to go through bi-districts last year. I didn’t really enjoy that route.
“I had a good round today, and finished in the top six,” he added. “That’s probably what I’ll remember most. I finished well at districts.”
