GOLF: CDO standout Jonathan Walters commits to Western Carolina then ties school record

It was a typical Monday for Canyon del Oro standout golfer Jonathan Walters. He went to school, made a phone call to Western Carolina to accept a scholarship offer and then shot a 5-under 31 to tie the school record for nine holes. Oh, and there was an eclipse.

11 state champions have worn the Green and Gold shorts for Canyon del Oro and, when you add other Dorado standouts like David McDaniel, it can get difficult to get noticed, but Walters did something Monday only two other golfers in program history had ever done….
