Trolls Open Spring Season
The Trolls opened their spring schedule in the Olivet Nazarene University Invitational at Kankakee Elks Country Club in St. Anne, Illinois. On the cold, windy, damp first day of the two-day competition, the Trolls finished in the middle of the field of eight teams. While the playing conditions improved on the second day the scores did not and the Trolls did not improve their final standings. Overall they finished in 5th place with a team total of 651 (323 and 328).
Steven Massey was the lead golfer for the Trolls. He shot a four-over par 76 in the first round and was positioned in tie for third place. He followed that round with a 78 on day two and ended in a tie for 5th of the total of 42 golfers.
After the first round Jonathan Zandstra was also in the top tier of the field in a tie for 10th place with a78. He came back with a 79 in the second round and moved up one spot for a 9th place tie.
Alek Svabek finished tied for 26th with rounds of 84 and 83. Jim Vos was 30th with final scores of 85 and 88 and Matt Dail shot an 86 and 95 for a 33rd place tie.
