Back to back eagles highlight Bucs win

By Staff | May 5, 2008

Tom More watches his shot on a cold and cloudy Monday. More and teammate Jon Trasamar both had eagles during the round.

Scoring an eagle (two under par) on a hole is a big deal in golf. Having two players score eagles on the same hole during the same round is rare, and having them do it on consecutive shots is almost unheard of.

That is exactly what Blue Earth Area golfers Jon Trasamar and Tom More did last Monday evening.

They both scored a two on the par four hole number 15 at the Riverside Golf Course, and they did it one after another as they were in the same foursome.

The Bucs downed the St. Peter Saints by 60 strokes, winning 334 to 394.

Jon Trasamar was the medalist, scoring a blazing hot 69, three under par, despite the cold and cloudy conditions. He had rounds of 37-32.

More used his eagle to help out with an 82 (43-39) score on the home course.

Andy Aukes added a 91 (50-41) and Derek Abel had a 92 (47-45) for the Bucs.

Laird Miller led the Saints with a 92 (45-47).

The Bucs junior varsity team lost to the Saints by a score of 199 to 225. Leading the JV squad was David Erdahl with a 49. Jacob Black added a 54.

The Bucs are scheduled to play St. James on Tuesday, and will play at Belle Plaine on Friday in a makeup meet.
