Moffat County’s Mike Bingham ranked 55th at state golf tourney

Bulldog shoots 91, 96 in two-day event

By the end of Tuesday afternoon, Mike Bingham couldn’t help looking back a few months, a time when he normally would have been out at Yampa Valley Golf Course perfecting the game he loves. With his attention on a summer job during the warm months, the only practice time he got was about two hours the whole season, which he certainly saw hurt him during his big moment. Bingham represented Moffat County High School Monday and Tuesday at 3A State Championships, shooting a 187 overall to place 55th out of 84 competitors.
