  • Friendship on the links

    Golf can be a sport for anyone and for two Grant County High School golfers it has caused a lifelong friendship.

    Senior Zach Wright and Tim Livingood have been friends since they were in elementary school.

    When Wright was little, his parents and grandparents played golf, which garnered his interest in the game. Wright began playing golf in school when he was in the sixth grade, catching the “golf bug.”

    For Livingood, it was also family that got him into the game.
