Pre-Season Report, Day 6: Top 5 Becoming More Clear

When the 4th round of qualifying began at Tetherow four individuals (Jonnie, Nick S., Casey, and Nick C.) were battling for the final two spots to the Kikkor Golf Husky Invite and after a difficult windy day at Tetherow, the cloudy picture became a little more clear as to who would represent the Beavers in their first event of the 2012-2013 season.    With a 68, the low round of qualifying to this point, Nick Sherwood went from +10 and in a tie for 5th to +6 and now in 4th place, eight shots clear of Nick Chianello in 6th place.

Sandwiched between Sherwood and Chianello is Casey King who fired an even par round of 72 to remain at +10 for the qualifying and open up a four shot lead on Chianello who went from +11 to +14 after a 75.

Barring some unforeseen disaster during Friday’s final round of qualifying it would seem that the top three thru four rounds, Scott Kim, Alex Moore, and David Fink are all but about lock’s for next week’s Husky Invitational. Sophomore, David Fink was the only individual to play the three rounds at Tetherow in par or better as he posted rounds of 72-71-71.

When asked about his team’s play at Tetherow, Coach Reehoorn sounded encouraged.  “The overall total scores of the guys are a bit skewed because of how we setup Trysting Tree as a par 66.  If you take away that round I think there are a lot of very good things from our trip to Central Oregon.  Tetherow is about as hard of a golf course as we will see all year and we have a lot of positives to take away.  I’m excited to see what we can bring to Seattle in a few days.”

The final round of qualifying will occur Friday afternoon at Corvallis Country Club.
