Boys Golf: Tigers 7th at Dakota County Invite

Tyler VanWinkle shot 83 at Emerald Greens
Farmington posted its second lowest team score of the spring but still finished seventh in a quality nine-team field at Saturday's Dakota Invitational played at Emerald Greens.

Eagan edged Rosemount 308-309 for the team title. Simley ranked third at 314, followed by Lakeville South 317, St. Thomas Academy 317, Eastview 319, Farmington 327, St. Croix Lutheran 350 and Trinity incomplete.

Sam Newcomb had his best outing of the season and topped the Tiger scorecard with a round of 79, one stroke better than Jake Jensen. Tyler VanWinkle checked in with a season-low 83, followed by Lucas Berg 85, Isaac Ferm 87 and Darby Grengs 88.

"We need to continue to work on tempo and our short game," assistant coach Terry Holmes said. "We need to develop a short memory after a bad shot."

The weather-plagued spring has caused next week's schedule to turn into an endurance test. The Tigers will play in Missota Conference meets Monday (Chaska Town Course); Tuesday (River Hills) and Friday (Southern Hills).
