Rockport — Could it be possible the next Tiger Woods or Lexi Thompson carried or pushed their clubs around Goose River Golf Course on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 9?

Only the future will determine that, but, in the present, dozens of middle school golfers from Camden-Rockport, Oceanside of Thomaston, Troy Howard of Belfast and Great Salt Bay of Damariscotta made their way around the hilly, tough, rain-soaked links in a quest for their best score on the day.

Watch video and see more photos below.

When the final drive had been struck, approach shot hit the green, chip attempted and putt holed in the Busline League championship event, the Cougars of GSB, led by standout Kellen Adickes, finished first.

The individual champion was Adickes at 36, while second was earned by Oceanside's Noah McLellan at 39 and third by CRMS' Liam O' Dwyer at 53.

The Busline League only has three official teams — GSB, Oceanside and CRMS — while other squads, including Troy Howard and Medomak of Waldoboro, have club programs.

More than 30 golfers participated in Wednesday's final event. The Busline League hosted six matches this fall. Megunticook Golf Club in Rockport, Wawenock Golf Club of Walpole, Goose River and Northport Golf Club were host sites.
