Bulldog linksters beat out the rain; beat North in Metro dual

(Continued)

Matthew Walker made the most of his return to competition. Playing in a competitive round at Cedar Creek for the first time since winning the Greater City Championship title in August, Walker fired a nine-hole two-under 34 to earn the medalist honor by three shots over North’s Colby Chup.

“The varsity guys all wanted to play because it was at home,” Maas said. “It was a chance for them to play in front of friends and family for one of the few times and it was a chance to play on a course they’re familiar with.”

In fact, that familiarity helped Ottumwa golfers finish the rain-shortened day with several of the day’s top scores. All told, 12 of the top 13 scores posted in the dual were posted by OHS golfers with more Bulldog JV golfers unable to finish due to weather.

“It was nice when we get to play a lot of guys at home because we got all the junior varsity guys out there too,” Maas said. “It was going along nicely until the rain cut loose.”

The Bulldogs will look to continue building off of what’s been a very good and very busy week of action having already played in the Ames Invitational on Monday and the Metro duals Tuesday and Thursday. OHS will wrap up the week at Elmwood Country Club in the Marshalltown Invite before next week, which will lead feature more tournaments against more top-notch competition including a return home next Thursday for another Metro dual meet against Des Moines Roosevelt that the Bulldogs have had marked on the calendar for a solid year.

“They have a very, very good team that beat us last year up at Waveland,” Maas said. “We thought we had a pretty good team ourselves last year when they beat us, so we’re looking forward to playing them at the (Ottumwa) Country Club next Thursday.”
