RDC struggles through first round
KAMLOOPS, B.C. — It was a tough day out on the course as RDC opened up its pursuit of a CCAA National golf title on Wednesday at the Dunes.
After the first 18 holes they will be forced to dig themselves out of a big hole after finishing way off the pace in both the men’s and women’s divisions.
The men finished with a disappointing total of 340 while Humber College finished first at 286, Kamosun was second at 295 and University of Fraser Valley was third at 296.
Landon Schmidt was the top King with an 81 followed by Jordie Weich at 83, J.D. Morrical 85, Ben Stang 85, and Jonathan Laniel 87.
“it was a surprisingly poor day all the way around,” said RDC head coach Scott Bergdahl. “Being at nationals I think they felt the pressure a little bit, although we didn’t talk about it much or put that pressure on them.
“Thankfully it’s a three day event, we have lots of time to improve.”
The Queens had similar problems in finishing up at 213. Durham was in first with a 154 while UBC Okanagan was second at 170 and Holland College was third at 174.
Caitlin Kelliher was the top Queen with a 93 while Melissa Koster shot a 110.
