It was just a “matter of him putting it all together” as Alex Bedwell won the Starkville Country Club Invitational recently.
“Alex has always had the ability,” Starkville Academy golf coach Mark Alexander said. “Having the ability is not the question. With Alex, it is a mental thing a lot of times. He just had to get passed that mental hurdle and he probably did that midway through the year last year. He has all the talent and has all the shots. It was just a matter of him putting it all together.”
What makes the win even more impressive is the Starkville Academy student is the youngest person to ever accomplish the feat.
“There were some good players,” Bedwell said. “I knew if I played good I had a chance based on how everyone else played that day. It was weird and kind of cool winning because I didn’t know I was the youngest until everyone else told me. It is just cool to be the only high school person to do it.”
