Christian McIntosh evaluates the lines on the putting green Tuesday at Prairie View Golf Club in Carmel on June 11, 2019.

SELLERSBURG — Christian McIntosh got his season off to a strong start Saturday. 

The Floyd Central senior shot a 3-under-par 69 to earn medalist honors in the Fuzzy Zoeller Invitational at Covered Bridge Golf Club. 

Led by McIntosh, the Highlanders finished four shots behind Bloomington South for the team title. The Panthers carded a collective 310 and were paced by Happy Gilmore (yes, Happy Gilmore), who shot an even-par 72 to tie for second-place overall. 

South, which was No. 19 in the Indiana High School Golf Coaches Association preseason poll, shot 310. Floyd, which was No. 8 in the preseason poll, fired a 314. Silver Creek took third with 321 while Evansville North, which was No. 16 in the preseason ranking, placed fourth with 332. Borden finished fifth with 361. 

Dragons junior Carter Smith shot 73 to finish fourth, while teammate Cody Coleman placed fifth with a 75. 

The fifth-place Braves were paced by sophomore A.J. Agnew, who shot 76. 

In his round, McIntosh shot a 1-under 35 on the front nine and a 2-under 34 on the back. 

He bogeyed No. 1, then parred the next three holes before birdieing the par-5 fifth. He then sandwiched pars on 6, 8 and 9 around a birdie on the par-4 seventh. 

On the back nine, McIntosh birdied the par-4 11th and the par-4 15th and parred the rest. 

The Highlanders will host the Floyd Central Invitational at 2 p.m. next Saturday at Valley View Golf Club.
