The WPIAL will provide live online scoring for the WPIAL Class AAA boys individual golf championship on Wednesday.
Observers following the players will enter scores after each hole at Diamond Run Golf Club in Sewickley, said executive director Tim O'Malley. The leaderboard can be found at www.scrolf.com/club/lbTraditional.aspx?EventID=6503&adid=1&color=1.
The first tee time is 8 a.m. The last of the 12 groups starts at 9:28 a.m. Online scores are unofficial, but will allow fans to follow the rounds of all 36 golfers.
In past years, “unless you were (on the course), there was no way to know what was going on until after the fact,” O'Malley said.
The idea came from Mt. Pleasant coach Matt Gross and Ringgold coach Bob Osleger, both members of the WPIAL golf steering committee. If this trial run proves successful, live scoring could expand to other WPIAL golf events, O'Malley said.
