Trasamar takes 40th, More 66th
Blue Earth Area golfers Jon Trasamar and Tom More were both disappointed in where they placed at the State Golf Meet on June 5 and 6.
Trasamar shot a 166 (83-83) for a tie for 40th place, and More shot a 174 (84-90) for a tie for 66th place.
“Both Jon and Tom hit the ball well both days,” Buc golf coach Steve Fernholz said.
Trasamar struck the ball well and putted well, Fernholz said. “Jon just didn’t give himself a lot of chances to score well,” Fernholz explained.
Trasa-mar has been able all year to put together a lot of birdies in a hurry, which didn’t happen at the State Meet, Fernholz said. He had one birdie total for both rounds.
“He also hit No. 18 on the worst conditions of the day, with the wind blowing up to 40-50 miles per hour,” Fernholz said. “He was in position to birdie until the wind blew the ball off the green and he took an eight on the hole.”
More had a good tournament and hit the ball very well also, said Fernholz. “Tom’s putting was not good, and that was disappointing because he has been one of our better putters all year,” Fernholz said. “But it hurt him at State.”
Although they both were disappointed they did not place higher, Coach Fernholz said he felt that the two did alright at the State Tournament, under less than ideal conditions.
Trasamar had rounds of 40-43 the first day, and 43-40 the second day., although part of the first round was actually played on Friday, due to weather. More shot a 40-44 the first round, and a 47-43 the second day.
The State Meet was played at the Ridges at Sand Creek Course in Jordan. Robert Bell of Pierz won the Class AA Tournament with a 151 score. Myles Pfingsten of Fairmont tied for sixth place with a 157 score.
Orono won the team portion of the tournament. Waseca, the representative from this section, was in eighth place.
