Albert Lea High School junior Drew Teeter competed in the boys 3A State Golf Tournament on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

He started out the tournament with a round of 79 on Tuesday and finished with a round of 76 on Wednesday.

Coach Jeffrey Groth said Teeter played good golf on Tuesday and was at +2 with three holes to play. At this point he was about four shots out of first place, but ended the day at +7.

Groth said he struggled on the front nine on Wednesday but finished the day +4 and +11 on the tournament.

This was Teeter’s second year in a row going to the state tournament as an individual. While he was hoping to do better, he improved from his last year’s score by three strokes, shooting 155 after posting a 158 last year.  

“Drew is a player unlike any other,” Groth said. “From the day that the state tournament ended last year, until the start of golf season, I was told there was not a day that he did not pick up a golf club. He has a passion for the game and a desire to get better. The work he puts in his evident when he gets out on the course. I am excited to have him back as a senior captain and look forward to having his leadership and grit for another year.”
