Boys' Golf Team Places Fifth at Nodaway Valley Meet With Unique Scoring System
Last Thursday at the Nodaway Valley Invitational the Charger boys' golf team was involved in an unusual way of scoring a golf tournament. Two boys shot their own ball, two were paired in best ball, and two were paired in better ball in which both played a hole with the lower score taking the hole.
"The boys had a great time and enjoyed the format," coach Lori McGivney commented following the match. "Gunnar Larsen and Nolan Wheatley finished second in the better ball competition."
The Larsen/Wheatley twosome shot an 83, just one stroke out of first place in the better ball play. Spencer Grove paced the Chargers in the traditional play with a 97, while McKlain Jorgensen shot an even 100. Eli Kading and Kael Hoing scored a 96 in the best ball competition, which was good for fourth place in that category. As a team the Chargers shot 376, good for fifth place out of the seven teams at the meet.
