WHEELING— The Grafton High School (GHS) Bearcats Golf Team sent senior Chris Miller to Oglebay Park Golf Club over the weekend, to compete in the 2020 West Virginia State Golf Tournament.
While competing, Miller earned second-team all-state honors, finishing ninth with rounds of 83 and 91 for the weekend.
Miller has accomplished a lot in his short golfing career as he was invited to join the highly prestigious Callaway Golf Tour, during the summer months and won Player of the Year honors.
His combined performance with the Callaway Golf Tour, along with his West Virginia State finals play has garnered him an invitation as one of eight kids from the entire state to compete in the Mid-Atlantic Junior Invitational tournament, to golf alongside other outstanding golfers from the states of Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland.
The Mid-Atlantic Invitational will be played at the Suburban Club in Pikesville, Maryland on October 24 and 25.
In addition to being skilled on the course, Miller is also an outstanding student at GHS, and while his passion for golf has only grown over the years, he also stays busy and active during the off season.
Like most West Virginia kids, he spends most of his off-season time enjoying the mountainous terrain of the area hunting and fishing.
According to Miller, his post High School aspirations include admission to a prestigious PGA program so he can continue with golf in some form after high school.
Congratulations Chris Miller, from the staff of the Mountain Statesman.
