Area Golfers Battle Through Tough State Course

Issue Date: June 7, 2018

Jacobson/Carriveau Lead Golfers in D2 Competition

Behind a ninth-place finish from Bryce Jacobson, the Peshtigo golf team was sixth in the state at this week's Division II State Golf Championship in Madison.

Going into the second day, Jacobson was third individually at one shot over par, but he struggled a bit more on the tough University Ridge course to finish day two with an 84.

"I hit the ball well the past two days but trying to putt on those greens was very challenging," Jacobson said. "I struggled with the speed of the greens."

Jacobson said the tie for ninth was "a nice way to finish my career," but said, "it would have been better if I could have played better [on Tuesday]."

Peshtigo coach Kyle Chaney also noted the greens and their effect over the two days.

"There's a lot of risk-reward in putting on greens at a championship-level course. They're definitely faster down-grain and slower up-grain," he said. "The greens dried up and got faster and we had a lot more three-putts than we should have seen."

Jacobson wasn't the only one to have some issues with the greens. Most golfers had a hard time adjusting to the speed.

"My stroke wasn't there and these greens were so fast and I just couldn't read them right," Peshtigo's Tyler Lund said after shooting scores of 86 and 88 for the tournament. "It just didn't go my way the whole week"

For Lund and Jacobson, their goal this season was to make it to state as a team, which they were able to do in their final go-around.

"I'm very, very proud of the entire team and the work that they've put in. They set a goal earlier this year to make it to state," Cheney said. "Getting here and winning sectionals last week really proved that this team was special, because obviously being the first team in school history to make it here is a very impressive thing for all of them and the work that they've put in."

Junior Trent Carriveau shot an 83 on day one and a 79 on the second day. He said on playing at state, "It was so fun. The experience was just amazing. Having so many people watching was fun."

The team wasn't all based on senior leadership, however, with the Bulldogs primed for another strong season next year, with juniors Carriveau and Ty Davis, along with freshman Jordan Carvenough, coming back.

"Being here and experiencing it was nerve-wracking but I think now that I did it, I realize it's a big deal but nothing to be nervous about," Carvenough said. "Being here as a freshman really sparks that it's impressive and you want to keep getting here. Seeing all the better players out makes me want to be better to beat them, really."

Carvenough shot 94 on the first day, but rebounded with an 88 the second day. Davis carded scores of 91 and 87.

Davis said playing at state was a big confidence-booster going into next season, when the Bulldogs will be hoping to continue the programs' upward trajectory.

"It's very exciting, Bulldogs coach Jim Dufrane said. "We're so happy for Bryce and Tyler as seniors to do it, but we have some good kids with Trent, Ty and Jordan and some others that are going to be coming up behind them next year. I think it's really positive for the program."

Marinette is one local program that is used to sending its whole team to state. This year, Marinette's lone representative was junior Matt Wagner, who tied for 29th in the field with 169 total strokes.

He had a rough first day, shooting an 88, but he rebounded to shoot an 81 the second day, which he said was more indicative of his abilities.

"I struggled around the greens both days, where I'm usually pretty good, so that hurts," Wagner said. "My putting wasn't terrible. A couple three-putts and stuff, but it wasn't too bad."

Marinette coach Cary Waloway noted that besides a few holes that got away from Wagner, he hit the ball pretty well during the week.

"Play-wise, he hit the ball pretty good except for a few balls each day that cost him a nine on a par 4 and an eight on a par 5," Waloway said. "You just can't have those. Those are score-wreckers, but he hit the ball well."

While the Marines didn't send their whole team to state this year, they're hoping with some youth coming through the ranks and improvements of their core, they'll be right back in Madison next year.

"Definitely next year as a team," Wagner said. "We've got to get some of the younger kids that are coming up. There's a couple of freshman that could be pretty good if we get them all playing and practicing. We'll have a chance definitely as a team next year."

Casper and Bauer Finish In Top Third of D3 Field

Coleman's Kasey Casper and Crivitz Wolverine Shane Bauer are used to battling back in forth in the M&O Conference. For the two Marinette County golfers, this week's Division III State Championship was no different.

Bauer held a four-stroke lead on Casper after the first day at University Ridge in Madison, with Bauer's 82 keeping him near the front of the DIII pack. Casper shot an 86, but was also still in reach.

On day two, Bauer had another good round, firing an 83, but Casper carded a 78 to jump him by one stroke. Casper was 16th in the 52-golfer field and Bauer was 17th.

Coleman Coach George Laitenen said Casper was getting unlucky on the first day of competition.

"He didn't get any breaks," Laitenen said. "Anytime he mishit it a little bit, he was either in the deep rough or in the sand trap. It was all day long-just barely in the rough or just trickling into the sand trap. He didn't get any breaks."

This was Casper's third time back at state, and the first time he got into the 70s at the event.

"It was a great feeling to be back there for my third time," Casper said, noting that he was able to make some more putts and keep his driver shots square on Tuesday.

Casper will be a senior next year, when he'll try to make it a perfect 4-for-4 on state trips in his high school career.

For Bauer, this was the last run of his career as a Wolverine.

"I wish I would have shot better, but all in all, it was a three fun days and it was great ending my career at University Ridge," he said. "It was a great accomplishment to make it to state and it was an incredible atmosphere."

Wolverines coach Brad Taylor referenced the tough greens a lot of players were having trouble with, saying, "Reading the greens started off a little shaky but now he's dialed in and playing the greens very well."

Outside of a few "mediocre holes," as Taylor called them, he said Bauer played good golf, hitting the ball well.

"It's just a couple of mediocre holes that he rebounded from with birdies, but he's hitting the ball clean," Taylor said. "His ball-striking has been very good the past two days."

Taylor said the course at University Ridge was "in top-notch shape," adding that "you couldn't ask for better conditions."

Not a bad way to end the high school season for the two M&O Conference competitors.
