BHS golf: Dale's 75 leads Jacks at Greystone

Trey Dale shot 75 to lead the Bemidji boys golf team at Tuesday's triangular held at Greystone Golf Course near Sauk Centre.

Joining the Lumberjacks at the meet, which was designed to help the players become more familiar with the course that will host the section tournament, were Moorhead and Fergus Falls.

The Spuds won Tuesday's triangular with a 297 while Fergus Falls shot 316 and Bemidji 324.

"The kids learned how important it is to hit the fairways and stay out of the fescue," said BHS coach Seth Knudson. "The fescue is four inches long and very thick and the best you can do with a good lie is maybe advance the ball 100 yards.

"But you may lose the ball entirely," Knudson added.

Dale's 75 on the par-72 layout was six shots behind Ben Welle of Moorhead who shot 69. Lumberjack Elliot Leinen carded an 81 while Max Hazelton shot 82, Kodi Craft 86, Kaleb Hanson 88 and Jordan Manick 91.

"We could have shot better and I expect that we will Thursday when we come back here for the Melrose Invitational," Knudson said. "But we are improving.

"At the start of the year we were shooting in the 330s and 340s and now we are disappointed with a 324. Last week's 306 at Longbow is where we want to be at and we'll work on getting back there."
