Four golfers from Madison County -- including a pair of high school standouts -- took on the best golfers in the state this week at the 100th Kentucky Open in Lexington.

The event took place Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at Kearny Hill Golf Links.

Clay Pendergrass was the only local player to advance to the final round. The Madison Central freshman shot rounds of 72 and 71 to make the cut.

In Thursday's final round, Pendergrass shot a 77. He finished with a three-day total of +4, 220, and tied for 66th.

Pendergrass finished as the KHSAA Region 9 runner-up last year and helped Madison Central finish fourth as a team at the state golf tournament.

Cooper Eberle, a sophomore at Madison Central, just missed the cut. He shot a 73 in the first round, before posting a 79 on Wednesday.

Eberle finished at +8, 152.

A pair of Madison Central graduates were also in the field.

Tyler Crafton shot rounds of 76 and 75, but did not make the cut. He finished with a score of +7, 151.

Zach Miller fired rounds of 77 and 79 and also did not advance to the final round. He finished with a score of +12, 156.

J.B. Williams of Danville and Evan Davis of Lexington were tied atop the leaderboard after 54 holes.

Williams took the title with a birdie on the second playoff hole.

Madison Central is set to open the 2019 high school golf season today at the Lafayette Invitational at Picadome Golf Course.
