Nick Choate, a senior at Trigg County High School, will continue his golf career at Murray State University.

A ceremony was held last Wednesday at the school during which Choate unveiled his choice and signed paperwork for a partial scholarship with the Racers.

Choate’s mother, Jamie Towler Choate, won two region championships while playing at TCHS in the late 1980s-early ‘90s.

Last month, Choate earned the 2013 1st Region individual championship, firing a 2-under-par 68 at Mayfield-Graves County Country Club. The win gave him an automatic berth in the state championship tournament at Bowling Green Country Club, where he tied for fifth with a two-round total of 2-over-par 146.

“After a pretty conservative first day, he went out the second day and let it all hang out,” Trig head coach Jim Garnett said. “That was probably one of the best rounds of golf I’ve ever seen. It’s amazing what he can do with a golf ball. There’s nobody that can hit a long iron like he can, and this year he learned how to putt. He’s going to be a pretty special player at Murray State, and I hope he has goals after that.”
