The Boonville Pirates golf team had what head coach Rob VanderLinden called one of those days in a dual meet Tuesday against Moberly.
While shooting 22 strokes higher than their average team score for the season, the Pirates as expected fell Tuesday against the Spartans at Heritage Hills Golf Course by a score of 188-207.
“Golf is a crazy sport and extremely hard to improve every time you play,” VanderLinden said. “Through most of the matches, some players shoot better than their average and some shoot worst. On good days more people shoot under their average, on bad days most people shoot about their average. Today was not a good day for not only Boonville but Moberly also struggled. The weather was perfect and the course was in good shape, but just not a good day for golfers. Every golfer except for Brent Hall from Moberly was about their season average. Hopefully things will be better on Wednesday when we face Mexico.”
Brent Hall of Moberly was the meet medalist with a 6-over par 41. The Spartans garnered the top three individual spots, with Bryson Yowell and Nick Long finishing with a 12-over par 47. Brayden Page had the low score for Boonville with a score of 49 with one par and five bogeys while Jake Horst finished the meet with a score of 50 with one par and three bogeys.
Other scores for Boonville had Adam Schneringer with a score of 54 with three pars and one bogey. Grady Baker also shot a score of 54 with one par and one bogey while Cole Corbitt finished with a score of 57 with one par and two bogeys and Lucas Ziegelbein with a score of 58 with one bogey.
