With 18 of 36 holes complete at the W-I-A-A state
boys golf tournament...Bennett Hutson is in position
to become the second individual from Onalaska over
the past four years to walk away with the state title.
Hutson one of two from the area qualifying for state
as an individual in Division one.
And what a day for him.
Here is his approach on the 9th hole of the day...he'd
two-putt for par...and is at one-under at the turn.
Hutson then goes two-under on his back-nine.
Here on his 18th hole he pars to finish his round
Hutson goes into the clubhouse tied atop the leaderboard..
Each of the last two years being here, just getting
I feel really, really comfortable out here now.
It's a good feeling, the nerves weren't quite as present
as they have been the past couple of years.
So it's just a lot more relaxed out there today.
Kaylor Steger of Oak Creek would end up finishing
his day with a 68.
So Hutson enters tomorrow's final round tied for second
place....and just one shot behind the leader.
Tomah's Trey Hewuse also there as an individual.
Hewuse has a great opening nine holes...finishing
at even-par...including this par he'd get on his 9th
Hewuse ends up shooting a round of 78.
Me and coach had a big game plan after our practice
round yesterday and we stuck to it for the most part
and that's how I was able to stay solid.
Holmen making their first state team appearance since
a runner-up finish in 2012.
The Vikings have a front-nine to forget...more specifically
hole number-one as the team went plus-13 on that hole
Now on nineTyler Church misses the birdie...he makes
Church is plus-ten today.
The final nine holes going much better for Holmen.
Eric Olson finishing up his round missing the birdie
and tapping in the par...he finishes with an 81.
Connor Frawley does get the birdie make...one of two
for Holmen today.
Compare that plus-13 the team shot on the first hole....to
the plus-12 they shoot over their final nine holes.
If we score the last nine holes and don't score the
first nine it would be a totally different story.
We throw away those first three holes - 10, 11, 12
start today - it would be a different story you'd
be talking about.
After one round Holmen is
in 13th place with a 335...27-shots
behind first place Homestead.
Eleva-Strum qualifying as a team in Division three.
Pick things up on hole 9...
The Cardinals' Alex Larson looking to save par...
He just misses, he would tap in on his way to a 93.
Stay on hole 9...
From the fringe, Eleva-Strum's Jake Hulberg with the
long par putt...
That stops just inches from the cup...
He taps in from there on his way to an 86.
Eleva-Strum sits in sixth place after round one...Lancaster
holding the D-three lead.
