Boys Golf: 3 Tigers make second round

Lucas Berg
Unsettled spring weather played havoc with the Section 1AAA tournament played Saturday and finally Tuesday at Montgomery National Golf Course in Montgomery.

Heavy rains suspended play on Saturday and wet grounds postponed play on Monday, so all teams returned on Tuesday to complete round one and play round two.

The Tigers didn't make the final eight in team competition based on opening round scores but still played on day two as three individuals--Darby Grengs, Lucas Berg and Sam Newcomb--did qualify in individual play.

"Nerves got to us the first day," coach Jon Holmes said, "and that took us out of the team competition."

Berg had the low opening round (83) for Farmington and drew some positive words from coach Jon Holmes

"Lucas played solid and stepped up," Holmes said. "He's got a very good mental game and is able to get up and down to save pars and bogeys...It was awesome to see him be rewarded with consistently lower scores as the season progressed."

Isaac Ferm
Newcomb and Grengs joined Berg in the final round with identical scores of 87. Isaac Ferm and Jake Jensen finished the opening day at 88 and Tyler VanWinkle shot 91.

For the two days, Berg and Ferm carded 162, Jensen 167, Grengs 173 and VanWinkle 174. Newcomb could not finish his second round after being hit with an errant shot and taken for medical treatment.

"All in all, it was a valuable experience for our young team," Holmes said. "I'm excited to work with them this summer."
