AMBOY — On Saturday Sept. 11, the Amboy Boys Golf Team finished runner-up at the Kewanee Invitational. The Clippers fired an impressive 349 to winner Rock Ridge 341. 

Team members Wes Wilson shot an 80 to lead the team and finished fourth. Hayden Wittenauer placed sixth shooting a 83, and rounding out the top ten, Jackson Rodgers shot an 85 for ninth. 

“I was proud how after a couple of our guys had a rough start, they battled,” said Head Coach Zach Ross. “The players stuck to our philosophy of; play the golf course and not your opponent.”  

The Clippers are 6-3 in conference and 7-4 overall so far. Upcoming matches include Forreston, and next Saturday at the River Sale Invitational. 

“My guys are starting to understand the course management part of the game,’ explained Ross. “We are a young team with no Seniors, so the future looks bright.”
