Class act

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Fif­teen-year-old Strat­ton Nolen de­serves a ton of credit for his vic­tory in the Fire­cracker Open at Lions Mu­nic­i­pal, where he de­feated de­fend­ing cham­pion Scott Roude­bush and Jor­dan Woolf in a play­off. But Roude­bush, an Austin High grad who just fin­ished his ju­nior sea­son at TCU, should get some recog­ni­tion for his class on Mon­day.

Af­ter los­ing in a play­off, a lot of guys would have dashed to the park­ing lot. Roude­bush stayed around to visit with friends and fam­ily. He ap­plauded Nolen when the teen re­ceived the tro­phy and even posed with the new cham­pion for sev­eral pho­tos — smil­ing and po­lite the whole time. Roude­bush has a great golf game, but his man­ners and eti­quette are even bet­ter.
