Chilly, breezy weather on a golf course doesn't go hand-in-hand in with great scoring. Despite the less than ideal conditions at Black Rock Creek Golf Course yesterday, Grandview's Matt Dailey worked through the elements and played solid, bogey golf.
The GHS junior fired a 90 on his home par-72 course - on front and back nine scores of 46-44.
No birdies along the way for Dailey, said Grandview Coach Dave Uggetti, but the Greyhound golfer did par three of the holes and recorded bogeys on six others. Dailey's round also included two, touchy-feely up-and-downs that prevented big scores. Uggetti also noted that Dailey only found two of Black Rock Creek's bunkers during his 18-hole round.
As well as Dailey played, the 'Hounds had to settle for the last place spot at Tuesday's four-school CWAC match. West Valley's Rams, with an aggregate score of 334, edged the Othello Huskies by two strokes for the top spot in the team standings. Ellensburg was third with a team score of 371, followed by Grandview with a total of 434.
Yesterday's medalist proved to be Othello's Trevor Salsbury. He carded a 4-over-par 76.
Second in for Grandview's boys yesterday was Justin Murbach. Experiencing difficulty in getting his tee shots to find the fairway, he settled for a 103. He scored a 55 on the front nine, but shaved seven strokes off that after the clubhouse turn, posting a 48 on the back side.
Grandview's Dylan Parker turned in the third lowest round for the 'Hounds Tuesday afternoon. He tallied a 117 with front and back nine scores of 64-53. Sean Charvet, playing his first competitive round in about two weeks, closed out the team scoring for Grandview with a 124 (55-69).
The GHS boys golf squad is out of action until Thursday, April 25, when the team will play another home match against Ephrata and Othello.
