Boys golf is really getting into the swing of things, placing top three in both tournaments played last week. The buffalo golf team played on home turf Saturday, March 31st, at Buffalo Dunes Golf Course. The team placed second out of five other schools shooting 349, only 28 strokes behind Hays. The second tournament played was held at Auburn Hills Golf Course for the Bishop Carroll invitational. The golfers did very well placing third out of 14 other teams and shooting about the same as the Garden City invitational with a total of 338. The weather was definitely a factor for the golfers in both tournaments, ranging down into the 40s with lots of wind.
“Buffalo Dunes is our home course and we were very familiar with it.” Tyler Moran said, “I’ve played Auburn Hills a couple of times but it was some players’ first time at a challenging course such as Auburn Hills. Buffalo Dunes is always kept in great shape, Auburn Hills is a tight course which makes it hard to recover from a bad drive. The cold and wind was a large factor in both tournaments but there is room for improvement as the year progresses.”
