Competing for Quitman High School this past spring, Eli Walker proved he was one of the top “small school” prep golfers in the state of Louisiana. Make that now one of the best in the entire gulf south region regardless of classification.
With rounds of 74-73 and a two day total of 147 at the extremely difficult East Ridge Country Club in Bossier City, Walker solidified his lofty status by finishing in fourth place in the David Toms Junior Championship.
The impressive scoring total was only three shots back of winner Fox Hambleton of Texarkana, TX and the best among northeast Louisiana linksters who were part of the 63 man field vying for the title of what is recognized as the top junior golf tournament that will be played this summer.
