Greenville Invitational opens boys golf season

Young Green Wave team settles in following slow start at Greenville Boys Golf Invitational

GREENVILLE – Greenville got the 2022 season underway hosting the 26th annual Invitational Tournament with 14-teams at Turtle Creek Golf Course.

The Green Wave finished 13th out of 14 teams shooting a team 404 while Indian Hills took first place with a 298 placing the top five scorers in the Thursday invitational.

“I know the boys are disappointed in the way they played today but we had five boys playing in their first varsity match so I know nerves played into our score, especially early in the round,” said Greenville coach, Brian Stickel. “The more they played the more relaxed they played.”

Indian Hills’ Wyatt Higgins was Medalist shooting 71 and teammates Will Heekin 74; Tyler Heekin 76; Kyle Innis 77 and Alex Holzapfel with a 78 rounded out the top five finishers.

“We played one senior in Mason Shuttleworth, four juniors- Ethan Sunsdahl, Aidan Honeyman, Bryce Blumenstock and Will Gettinger,” Stickel noted. “Our lone sophomore was Carson Good.

The more these guys play, the better we will get.”

Ethan Sunsdahl carded an 88 to lead Greenville, Aidan Honeyman shot a 103, Carson Good scored a 105 and Bryce Blumensock finished with a 108. Will Gettinger recorded a 114 playing for the Wave.
