Dripping Springs High School senior golfer Tanner Wardlaw qualified for the UIL State Tournament after tying for third place at the Region IV-5A Tournament on Tuesday, April 19 at The Golf Club of Texas in San Antonio.
Wardlaw climbed the leaderboard on the second and final day of the competition by recording the lowest score of the regional tournament among the 95 competitors with a three-under-par 69 to move up from 20th place. He finished with a three-over-par score of 147, just two strokes from first place.
