Dominating the local scene is one thing, but the mark of a true golfing talent is someone who can do it against the elite.
The No. 36 qualifier with a two-day 74-75—149, the Windham High junior proved he had what it takes. He was one of 64 qualifiers for match play.
Even at that point, Greenleaf was by no means overmatched. The hometown favorite put up an impressive fight before falling 2 and 1 to Victor Wiggins of Gastonia, N.C. Wiggins is the No. 28 player in the Class of 2013 and will be headed to Auburn.
“I’m proud of myself already,” Greenleaf said. “I made the cut. I was 3-down and I gave him a run at the end, so it’s not like I went down 5 and 6 or anything like that.”
Later on, Greenleaf won the NHIAA Division 2 state title and was named Eagle-Tribune MVP for the second time.
