Pine Crest's Ryan Hager wins individual title at Maverick Invitational


Special to The Miami Herald

Pine Crest’s Ryan Hager finished at 1-under-par to lead a field of 66 golfers Tuesday at the Maverick Invitational hosted by Archbishop McCarthy.

Hager was the only golfer to finish under par at Jacaranda’s par-71 East Course.

Hager attributed his solid performance to a key three-hole stretch early in the back nine when he saved par on 10 and 12 and birdied 11.

“I hit a lot of greens, made it easy on myself, and it worked out,” Hager said. “I didn’t really take the driver out of the bag, so I made it as easy on myself as I could.”

Hager said he was struggling earlier this season but began regaining confidence during Pine Crest’s last match. He shot even par in a nine-hole match on the same course he breezed through on Tuesday.

Hager’s teammate, Steven Chervony, finished in a tie for second with a pair of Columbus Explorers — Eddie Martinez and Julio Betancourt — with a score of 72, but lost a tiebreaker to finish outside the top three.

The Panthers finished second to Columbus in team play, 298-299.

“It’s definitely a good confidence boost,” Hager said. “We were struggling early on in the season, but we beat some good rivals today and are definitely looking forward to bringing it for districts.”

University School (303) and Douglas (306) finished third and fourth. Eleven schools participated.
