Waltrip High School’s Christian Rodriguez showed out at the Region III-5A boys golf tournament in April, finishing third individually.
Now, the Rams’ senior will get the chance to show the rest of Texas what he’s got.
Rodriguez, a Southwestern University signee, will be one of 71 golfers to tee off during the UIL Class 5A boys state tournament May 20-21 at White Wing Golf Club in Georgetown. It will be Rodriguez’s first appearance at state.
Rodriguez qualified by earning one of three individual berths from the regional tournament April 24-25 at La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa in Montgomery, where he finished with a two-round score of 4-over-par 146. He was one of only four golfers in the field to break 150 and one of two Waltrip individual medalists who competed along with Hayden Hooper.
