Hilton Head Christian Academy’s Max Green picked up right where he left off after his SCISA 2A individual title, earning an impressive fourth-place finish with a 2-over 144 to lead a group of area high school golf standouts at the Southern Cross Invitational in Aiken on Friday and Saturday.
Green began his tournament with a pair of double bogeys on the front nine Friday, but he found his groove starting on the ninth hole, racking up five birdies the rest of the way to card an even-par 71.
