The Eldon High School boys' golf team won the Tri-County Conference Tournament going away on Wednesday, beating second-place Versailles by 27 strokes at Dogwood Hills in Osage Beach.

Last year's champion, Osage, finished fourth with a team score of 361.

"We struggled a bit today but it's hard to get everyone to have their 'A' game every day," Osage coach L.J. Weeks said. "Golf's a funny sport like that... I'm still very proud of the guys and look forward to teeing it up again at districts."

Eldon had four golfers finish in the top six. Dalton Oden took medalist honors with a round of 74.  Versailles' Lucas Bell led the Tigers with a 74. Osage's Matt Eidson carded an 84.

District tournaments are next week.

Eldon and Osage will play on Wednesday at the Class 3, District 5 tournament in Clinton. Versailles will play in the Class 2, District 4 tournament on Thursday at Eagle Knoll Golf Course in Hartsburg.
