Butler County Boys’ 2023 Golf and Tennis Season Preview – Butler County Times-Gazette
BY CHARLES CHANEY
Returning golfers for boys
Last season Augusta was second in the 4A boys with Chadd Brown, who was second with Bishop Miege’s Jack Winkler.
This season, Brown has graduated and there is a new generation of golfers set to take the course, and Circle holds the cards for one of the state’s best freshmen.
Enter Anderson Helmer.
The Circle High freshman is already considered one of the best golfers in the state. His 74 in the summer Kansas Regionals would have won the 4A tie for the state title.
