Despite winning the KHSAA state golf title for a second straight year, Jay Nimmo was not able to repeat as Mr. Golf in 2020. He did however get named First Team All-State by the Kentucky Golf Coaches Association and Golf House Kentucky.
Nimmo finished 30 points behind Cooper’s Rylan Wotherspoon, who the Marshall County senior defeated on the first playoff hole in the dark to win the state title. Nimmo played in four fewer points tournaments than Wotherspoon, who will play collegiately at the University of Cincinnati.
Nimmo, who will play in college for Mississippi State, posted several invitational wins throughout the season while also playing in several national tournaments that coincided with his high school schedule.
The All-State Golf First and Second Teams are chosen by points earned in high school invitationals, KGCA All-State Championships, Regionals, and the KHSAA State Championships.
