CARMEL – After a pair of rain delays, play finally was able to conclude Tuesday at the IHSAA Boys Golf State Finals at Prairie View Golf Club.
Four local golfers were among the group, but all are well off the pace after the rainy opening round.
Warsaw junior Sam Yeager is tied for 79th overall after his round of 83. Yeager had nine bogeys and a double bogey in his round, unable to birdie any of his holes in his first state finals appearance. Yeager went 42 on the front side and 41 on the back, finishing 11 over. Yeager is tied with Fort Wayne Dwenger’s Logan Ryan and Columbus North’s Henry Keil.
Plymouth’s Micah Calhoun shot an 82 to sit just ahead of Yeager tied for 71st, able to fire two birdies but lost the edge with a double and triple bogey. Manchester’s Harley Kruschwitz and Northridge’s Logan Morrison are both tied for 58th overall with their rounds of 80. Kruschwitz, just a freshman, highlighted his round with three straight birdies on 9-10-11 of his day, and Morrison was just three over on the front nine.
Westfield’s Noah Shanteau is the clubhouse leader at three under (69), one shot better than Perry Meridian’s Nick Osterburg heading into the championship flight.
Carmel shot an amazing round of 286, going two under as a team in day one, six shots better than Center Grove and seven clear of Westfield.
Tomorrow’s final round will begin at 8 a.m.
