Drew Griswold Shoots One Over Par for Match Medalist & OHS "A" Team Brings Home A Plaque!

Drew Griswold shot a one over par score of 36 to be the match medalist for the 9 hole seven team match held on the East Course of Lakeside Links.

  While the team didn't really get a lot of rain during the match, It stayed dark and dreary throughout the event. It took extra effort to make the balls fly in the heavy , damp air. Wetness on the greens made putting an extra chore, but ,"we are the Portager's!"
   The events were held at Lakeside Links. The first match was held on the east course, where Sophomore Drew Griswold and Freshman Jake Matthews each produced personal bests. Drew finished one over par for a 36 to become the Match Medalist. Jake carded a 42, Jordan Pomeroy brought in a 45 and Levi handed in a 46 for a team effort of 169. Also shooting , but no factor in the score were Zac with 49 and Parker with 50.

Overall , the OHS Golfers, earned an 11-3 record to date. The Portagers get one more shot at giving Brethren/Bear Lake their first loss of the season, when they meet up at the Manistee National course next Tuesday.

The scramble was held on the West Course with each school bringing 2 teams of three men each. The Portager's A flight was Jordan Pomeroy, Parker Johnson and Levi Capper. The Team finished at 4 under, tied with Custer. When this happens, the officials go to a scorecard
tie breaker. They do this by looking back at the hardest par hole and seeing which team completed it with the lowest score. If each team is still tied, they keep looking forward. Onekama's A team won the A flight scramble on the 3rd handicap hole with a Birdie to Custer's par, and the Plaque was awarded to OHS. Look for it in the trophy case at school!
   Onekama's B Flight consisted of Drew Griswold, Jake Matthews and Zac Gilbert who finished 3 strokes behind Custer. Custer won this flight.
   Scrambles are a great way to break away and have some fun while still competing. The team members shoot from the best ball played giving some fun ,low scores to card. If a player is struggling in an area such as putting, chipping or driving that day, he may be able to shrug it off, knowing that he will still be shooting from the best ball. A lot of stress is gone over one's play that day and may even produce phenomenal shooting from all members.
   It's not over till it's over folks...This is clearly a year for Onekama and Brethren/Bear Lake to shoot it out to the end.... There is tremendous talent and skill on both teams. Congratulate your Golf team when you see them OHS!, For they are doing superb!
Whistles and Hugs Team! You make OHS proud! Now, go dry off your clubs and get ready for the next match.....
