Golf: Golden Bears get 7-stroke win over Pirates

Apr. 17—GREENSBURG — The weather finally produced a nice day for golf Monday as the Pirates played host to Shelbyville. On the front nine at the Greensburg Country Club, Shelbyville held off Greensburg 163-170.

Greensburg's Colten Schroeder was the medalist, carding a 37.

Hunter Springmeyer finished with 43. Brant Acra was a shot back with a 44. Kaden Acton and Logan Simpson both finished with 46. Reece Chapman had a 48 and Keegan Lewis a 54.

"We finally had some nice golfing weather, and even though we didn't come away victorious, I thought we played a pretty decent round of golf," Coach Mize said. "Shelbyville is a sectional favorite this season, so to hang in there with them is a nice little confidence boost moving forward."

"Today, it was short game, short game, short game. It absolutely killed us. I thought we struck the ball very well, but if we can't convert up and downs and we're turning birdie opportunities into bogeys and doubles, then we're going to have to really hone in on that part of our game. It will certainly be a focus of ours," Coach Mize added.

Shelbyville was led by Jake Garrison with 39 and Brock Wischemeyer and Logan Tobian, both with 40.
