County golf

Area golfers, like Port Charlotte’s Eddie Lainhairt (above), should be able to distance themselves from each other while playing.

Charlotte county golf tournament

The first day of the boys golf Charlotte county championship saw Port Charlotte come out hot in the three day event.

Playing at their home course, the Pirates shot a collective 167, 18 strokes ahead of second place Lemon Bay (185). Charlotte finished at 192. The Pirates are looking to make it back-to-back county championships.

Individually, the Pirates hold the top four spots with Marc Kaneko-Fujii and Eddie Lainhart our front with a 41-stroke first day. Behind them were Stephen Lomski (42) and Zach Starkey (43). Lemon Bay’s Bryce Noll (44) and Charlotte’s Bryce Hayse (45) rounded out the top six.

The event continues Wednesday at Twin Isles Country Club at 3:30 p.m.
