A pair of Campbellsville youth golfers finished second and third, respectively last week at the Musselman-Dunne Golf Tour (MDGT) championship at Big Springs Country Club in Louisville.
Luke Coyle was runner-up in the 10-and-under division by shooting  rounds of 36-42 to finish one stroke back on Monday and Tuesday.
In 10 events this year, he won four, finished second five times and placed third once. He also finished runner-up for Player of the Year honors.
Cooper Parks, an eighth-grader-to-be at Taylor County Middle School, was third (73-79) in the 13-14-year-old division as he shot 77 on Monday and 79 on Tuesday for a 156. Despite playing in only six of the 18 events, Parks finished ninth out of 76 golfers in seasonal points.
