WHAT HAPPENED: The Grand Haven boys golf team headed to the Macatawa Legends golf course to participate in the West Ottawa jamboree. This was the first time a full team was available to play  for the Bucs, since two of their golfers served four-game suspensions. Grand Haven earned a fourth place finish out of the seven that competed.

WHAT IT MEANS: Since it was the team’s first competition where everyone was available, there are still improvements to be made and better golf to play. The team will be optimistic that they will be able to place better in future jamborees once the team gets back up to speed.

THEY SAID IT: “We can play smarter,” junior Luke Deater said. “We just need to take a breath after a bad shot and not let it affect our next shots.”

KEY PLAYERS: Juniors Tai Chamberlain and Kai Rensland lead the way by shooting a pair of 40’s. Juniors Broc Wilson and Luke Deater shot a 41 and 42 respectively.

UP NEXT: The team will head to The Meadows early in the morning to compete in a full day’s worth of golf at the O-K Red mid-season tournament.
