Great summer for local golf

Cody Santone's victory in the Louisiana Golf Association Junior Amateur Championships gives Shreveport-Bossier City a sweep of the state's individual titles.

Shreveport's Jason Kuperman won the men's State Amateur title in June. Santone is a Bossier City resident who will be a junior at Parkway this fall. Last May, he helped Parkway win a second straight Class 4A state title.

The sweep speaks a lot for local golf, which has traditionally been strong. Hey, even former Shreveport Pirates quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver is getting into the act. After Friday's first round, the Shreveport resident was leading a celebrity event at Lake Tahoe.
