Going Low: La Salle’s 141 Stuns RI Golf Community


That’s what the La Salle Rams shot as a team (4 players) in a match last week at Agawam Hunt. 

Max Jackson and Olivia Williams shot 34, Joseph Earley a 36 and Nick Ferrara added a 37. 

The score stunned the Rhode Island Golf community. 

“That 141 has to be the lowest, or one of the lowest ever in RI High School History… impressive,” said PGA Teaching Professional Drew Anderson.  

Steve Feinstein of Challenge Cup commented, “that is one of the lowest High School team scores I have seen in Rhode Island.” 

It is possible that the score is a record, but there is no way of knowing because the Rhode Island Interscholastic League (RIIL) doesn’t keep historical records. 

“No way to know. We don’t have historical records like that. It’s pretty damn low though,” said Hendricken coach Rick Angeli. 

Button Hole pro and Wheeler coach Shane Drury called for there to be an RIIL golf historian. 

“We need an RIIL golf historian. That is the lowest in relation to par I have ever seen. Some matches that are played on a par 34 could have shot that at some point in RIIL history. That equates to 280 at the states.”

For what it’s worth, GolfNewsRI has gone back through every score we have posted over the last two years or so, and no-one has come close to 141. 

It is obviously a small sample, but at least gives an idea of how impressive the number is. 

The Rams will be the favorites heading into the State Championship Tournament in a couple of weeks. 

Another score of 141, or even something close, is going to make them tough to beat.
