ARCANUM – The Arcanum boys golf team defeated Versailles by the score of 163 – 190 at Beechwood Golf Course just a few days after winning the WOAC post season tournament and garnering a share of the first ever WOAC Boys Golf Title.
Will Brubaker was the medalist shooting a par 36 for Arcanum. Clay Hess had a 41, Graham Brubaker 42, Aiden Psczulkoski 44, Chad Pitzer 46 and Nate Kessler a 53.
During the match Arcanum golf coach Jordan Greve gave me some insight on his team and the spectacular season they are having.
Arcanum is led by the Brubaker brothers; Will who is a senior and Graham a freshman. Less than a tenth of stroke separates the two who are 1st and 2nd in the conference averaging 37.8 strokes per 9 holes.
“Will and Graham Brubaker are great kids and a lot of fun to watch golf,” Greve commented.
“I can’t talk about them without saying how proud I am of them, they as just good people and make it so easy on me as a coach. They are good students, get good grades, very respectful. Then bring in the golf, I wish I had a swing as good as them,” Greve exclaimed.
“Graham for a freshman is so impressive with what he can do with a golf ball and Will has been so steady over the years. Honestly, their swings are to a point that it’s beyond my ability as a coach to impact them. What I try to do is help them game manage the course and shot – club selection and here’s what to do in that situation. That is about as good as I can do for them considering how good they really are,” Greve blushed.
The Trojans have a pair of seniors Chad Pritzer at the 3 spot and Clay Hess at the 4.
“Both are fun to coach, Chad is a little more serious – stoic, while Clay Hess is the clown on the team and they balance each other well, which is why I pair them up to keep each other levelheaded. Chad has played the last couple of years on varsity and been very solid and consistent and we can count on him for a good score. Clay has struggled a bit down the stretch but he’s very capable of going low and we’ll need that going into the post season,” Greve stated.
Playing the 5 spot is junior Aiden Psczulkoski and at the 6 is junior Nate Kessler.
“Aiden is the most improved player from last year. He came in very green and caught the bug and is all about golf, asking how he can get better and playing all the time. It’s really showing to this year as he has knocked off between 10-15 strokes a round,” Greve boasted.
“Nate is a first-year golfer and a very athletic guy who also plays basketball and baseball. We were excited he joined the team this year. He’s kind of finding his way, learning about golf and I’m excited about his future as he puts more time into his game this summer as we will need him next year,” Greve concluded.
