On Monday, April 19th, the Ste. Genevieve Dragons Varsity Golf team traveled to Jackson to play in a highly competitive tournament. The team did well, coming in with a score of 369, to secure ninth place out of 15 schools. All of the Dragons shot in the 90’s, with three players tying for the low score of 92.
Grant Weiler led the way, coming with a team low of 92. Head Coach Ryan Mueller stated, “Grant was having a great day and ended up shooting his career low. Grant had a positive attitude the entire day and was able to use that to help his game. His driver was his strong suit without missing a fairway. He had great tee shots to help him see success by being able to get five pars on the day.”
Bryce Barley also shot a 92 to tie Weiler. Said Mueller, “Bryce also was playing a great round of golf. Bryce was able to have five pars on the day as well. He was seeing success with his short game and his approach shots were helping him on the scorecard. Bryce’s irons were definitely strong, and proved so by getting par on all on the par three’s except one.”
Zachary Burr shot a 92 as well. “Burr had his best golf round of his career. He played excellently all day, and used his three wood successfully on multiple holes. Zachary was able to shape his shots, definitely on hole ten. He was able to play the dog leg left perfectly with a draw that landed him within 150 yards to the hole. Zachary was able to use successful tee shots to help him keep his overall score in the low 90’s.”
Luke Basler was just out of the top three, coming in with a 93. Mueller commented, “Luke was able to get three pars on the front nine. Luke again shows his consistency on being in the mid to low 90’s. Luke played extremely consistent on the back nine while scoring all bogeys except for two holes where he scored double bogey.”
Landon Rose came in with the next score of a 96. Mueller knew Rose was capable of more, and said, “Landon did not have the round he had expected entering into this tournament. Landon had two double pars on the day, but was still able to stay in the 90’s. He was able to salvage his round by shooting three pars and a birdie. Landon had several great drives that left him just short of the green twice. He showed great shots with his irons to help him overall with his scores.”
With Districts just around the corner, the Dragons will look to tighten up their game this week in practice.
