Meyers’ Second Place Finish Propels CCS to a 13 Shot Victory

ActionCorey Meyers took an unplayable lie on the final hole of the 36 hole Columbia Basin College Invitational at Horn Rapids Golf Course in Richland, WA and it proved to be the difference as he fell one stroke back of medalist Branden Dalton of North Idaho College.  Meyers shot a pair of 74’s to finish second, one shot ahead of teammate Tyler Johnson (77-72).

Spokane started and ended the second day of the tournament with a 13 shot lead, claiming the first place trophy for the second straight year.  The course was playing very tricky with high, gusting winds over the two days.  The second day was slightly milder and did not have the drizzling rain of the first day.  The course features a bit of a desert target style and is a great change of pace from the conventional courses in the area.

Spokane finished the tournament with five golfers in the top 10 and six golfers in the top 11 in a very consistent team effort.  Kyler Gable finished in fifth place and was followed by Taylor Porter and Jason Molner in seventh and eighth place.  Sam Krause struggled a bit on the first day and finished in eleventh place.  Freshman Brooks Guetlin played as an individual and continued his improving process by cracking the top 18 with rounds of 80-78.

”The tournament did not count towards league standings, but anytime you get the chance to tee it up, you want to make the most of the opportunity.  I felt our guys competed against some great competition and a tricky course to shoot some respectable rounds.  We are looking forward to improved weather and course conditions in the Spokane area so we can continue to work on our games and get better,” commented Coach Scott Kramer.

Spokane looks to keep the winning streak going with a two-day, 54 hole event with North Idaho College on April 2-3 in Coeur d’Alene, ID.
