Please congratulate Barton Cheatham on a job well done in the Regional Tournament. Barton finished in the middle of the pack after two grueling rounds of play. There was a ton of competition as we're in the most competitive region in the state. Barton was up against numerous division one commits and a large number of other collegiate level golfers. He did a great job and it's all attributable to the effort and hard work that he's put in over the last few years.
