Teeter finishes day one of state meet in tie for 59th
After 18 holes and a day of competition, Albert Lea sophomore Drew Teeter stands in a tie for 59th place out of 88 golfers with a one-round score of 80(+8).
Teeter started on the back nine of the Bunker Hills Golf Club in Minneapolis and got to work right away, carding a par on the first hole. He then bogeyed the ensuing par five before getting back on track with a par at the 12th hole.
He finished out the front nine with a score of 41(+5).
Teeter improved on the back nine, notching a birdie on the sixth hole, his only birdie of the day. Aside from a double bogey on the fifth, Teeter played a relatively mistake-free front nine, carding a 39(+3).
Teeter was even par on the par fives, +1 on the par threes, and +7 on the par fours.
Two student athletes are currently tied atop the leaderboard. Edina junior Jack Wetzel and Northfield junior Nate Stevens are both at 68(-4).
Teeter will tee off on the second day starting at noon, again beginning on the back nine.
