North Hardin junior Anthony Irwin blossomed this season into the player many thought he could be.
Irwin, who didn’t play last season, won the 5th Region Tournament in September with a 2-under-par 71 at Lincoln Trail Country Club. It was a memorable day for Irwin, who had a hole-in-one on the par-3, 188-yard second hole to spark his round.
Irwin’s accomplishments earned him Area Player of the Year honors in the annual News-Enterprise/Coaches All-Area Boys’ Golf Team. It was something which caught him off guard.
