Area roundup - Reiber roars back for state golf title

October 22, 2003


YORK, Pa. - Waynesboro's Kevin Reiber overcame a five-shot deficit with a sparkling 69 Tuesday to win the PIAA state golf tournament at Heritage Hills Golf Club.

"This is pretty exciting," said Reiber. "I had no idea what everyone else was at."

Reiber shot a 33 on the front nine, including a remarkable eagle on the par-4 ninth when, from a foot in front of a water hazard and 80 yards from the pin, his sand wedge took one bounce straight into the cup.

"We discussed getting off to good start on the front nine because the back is much more difficult." Waynesboro coach Ryan Henderson said in a press release. "(He) made the shot of the tournament on hole nine."

Reiber followed with an approach to three feet and made birdie to move to 3-under on the round and 1-under for the tournament.


"When Kevin stuck his approach on 10 ... I felt that he had a legitimate chance at winning this thing," Henderson said.

Reiber made a sand save for par on 13, making the 10-foot par putt. He bogeyed 17 to fall back to even-par, but parred the difficult 18th to seal the victory.

"I am very proud of Kevin and the way he dealt with the pressure of this tournament," Henderson said. "He made several crucial three- and four-foot putts that helped him secure the win."
