Seeking a lifeline halfway through the Virginia 4A state golf championship, Alex Price turned to the man who always knows what to do. Holed up in a hotel with his Woodgrove teammates, Price called his father David.
The junior missed short putt after short putt Tuesday, he told his father, and was trapped in his head. He shot a 77. The elder Price told his son to focus on placing the ball at a specific spot rather than obsess over getting it in the cup.
