Merrick and Spindler help Knights to 3rd place in Long Prairie

Written by Kraig Hunter on . Posted in WCA Sports News

On Thursday, May 4th Jackson Merrick took the 6th place individual medal in Long Prairie with a score of 90 and Kaden Spindler fired his best round of the year with a 93 to help the Knights claim 3rd place in Long Prairie.   OTC won the meet, Pillager was second, the Knights 3rd followed  by Long Prairie-Browerville and Underwood.

Brady Enniking of Pillager was the individual medalist with a 78 followed by three OTC golfers Adam Young 79, Noah Chase 82, and Jackson Nyhus 83.   5th place went to Brandon Lefeniere of Long Prairie-Browerville with an 89 and Merrick 6th with a 90.

WCA Scoring:  Merrick 90, Spindler 93, James Wiese 97, Alex Endreson 105, Max Duncan 116, and Aiden Winter 130.

Knight Coach Kraig Hunter said, "The difference in Jackson's game the past couple of meets is his mental game.  He is in a good frame of mind on every shot on the course regardless of what happens and he is staying in the moment playing one shot at a time.  Kaden is really coming on for only his 3rd meet.  With all new golfers, short game is the thing that is behind and he has made big improvements in his chipping and putting which has really helped bring his scores down.

The other bright spot today was Alex Endreson shot a 45 on the back nine.  He has had a great attitude on the course as well and now he is looking to put together two good nines consecutively.
