Rifle frosh shoots 74, wins by 10 strokes

Fresh off playing basketball in Denver on Sunday, Elly Walters played her other sport Monday.
That’s golf, and she’s pretty good at it, which was clear when the Rifle High School freshman defied the fact she’d never played Bookcliff Country Club previously and shot a 3-over-par 74 to win the Tiger Invitational girls golf tournament by 10 strokes.
Rifle girls golf coach Roger Walters doesn’t think his daughter realizes how impressive what she did Monday was. Rather, she enjoys she game, and, “She just plays.”
Also impressive is the start to her high school career. Monday’s win made Elly Walters the meet medalist for the third time in four tournaments.
