After having his perfect record for the season snapped in the last-two tournaments while competing in the Boonville Invitational and Sedalia Smith-Cotton Invitational, Boonville senior golfer Brett Windsor cringed at the idea of playing Tuesday at Heritage Hills Golf Course in Moberly.
Although the course has never been kind to Windsor, the UCM signee blistered the course on Tuesday in windy and cold conditions by firing a 4-over par 74 to capture first place.
This is the second year in a row that Windsor has won the Moberly Tournament.
Of course the Pirates were a distant 12th in the final-team standings with 380 points. Mexico captured the team title with a score of 322 while LaPlata finished second at 327 and Hannibal third at 330.
Boonville Pirates golf coach Rob VanderLinden said the conditions and the golf course not being in good shape was cause for each of the golfers to struggle.
“Every golfer was above their average,” VanderLinden said. “Brett struggled on the back nine by posting five bogeys in a row but was able to finish strong with a couple of birdies to win the tournament for the second year in a row.”
While competing against a field of 19 teams, Windsor still managed two birdies, 10 pars and six bogeys in the tournament.
Trevor Watson of Hannibal finished second with a score of 75, followed by Harrison Kleinsorge of Mexico and Logan Smith of LaPlate with a score of 76 and Austin Kelsey of Mexico and Tanner Cooke of Hannibal with a score of 77.
As for the rest of the Boonville Pirate golfers, senior Eric VanderLinden finished the tournament with a score of 93 with six pars and seven bogeys. McKenna Stumph shot a score of 105 with two pars and three bogeys while Kyle Chrisman added a score of 108 with six bogeys and Thomas Simmons with a score of 108 with one par and eight bogeys.
