JOPLIN, Mo. — Trevor Biggerstaff has created a legacy for future Canton golfers to follow.

The senior earned his second state medal Tuesday, finishing third at the Class 1 boys state golf championships at Twin Hills Golf and Country Club. Biggerstaff carded a 156 total, tying with Sacred Heart’s Luke Jenkins.

Biggerstaff, who also finished third as a junior, has the perfect place for his second state medal.

“It will go up on my golf wall in my room above my bed by some scorecards and other medals,” Biggerstaff said.

More important than the memorabilia is putting Canton golf on the map.

“I’m very proud to represent Canton and to finish high my last two years at state,” Biggerstaff said. “I think in my career I have done a good job and think many more people know of Canton golf because of what the team has done and what I have done.”

Biggerstaff sat in fourth after Monday’s 18-hole round with a 76, but scores across the board went up Tuesday. He shot an 80 as only six golfers in the 91-player field shot in the 70s.

“It was definitely more challenging than yesterday, and on my last few holes, it got harder with the wind picking up,” Biggerstaff said. “The only problems I had today were on the greens.”

Biggerstaff didn’t feel his game was at its best, but it was good enough to leave a legacy.

“Finishing top three feels good knowing how I played,” Biggerstaff said. “I definitely didn’t bring my ‘A’ game with me this week, but knowing how I played finishing that high feels good.”

Canton’s Avery Uhlmeyer improved four strokes, shooting an 88 and finishing tied for 44th.
