Shadowood Golf Course has been kind to the Trinity Lutheran boys golf team this season.

On Tuesday, the Cougars improved to 4-1 on their home turf with a 190-211 win against Edinburgh.

Midway through the match, the rain began to fall a little, and both teams continued to struggle hitting their spots.

“I am real pleased,” Cougars coach Greg Personett said. “All of the players are leaving shots around the greens, so we know what we have to work on, and we will improve.”

Trinity’s Parker Criswell and Edinburgh’s Chris Quillen tied for medalist honors with 45s. Criswell had two pars and six birdies.

The Cougars’ Clayton Terry shot 46 with one par, while Clayton Pottschmidt shot 47 with two pars, and Andrew Rodriguez rounded out the scoring with 52. Also, Jack Harweger shot 53, and Garrett Dixon had 71.

“Pottschmidt shot a 47, his career low on the Trinity team,” Personett said. “Rodriguez shot a 52, and his score counted tonight with no circles. Everybody else pretty much hit their averages.

“We have a young team, and they are still struggling with their swings a little bit, but they do have good swings. It’s a growth period, and we have freshmen and sophomores, and they are struggling with a height change. They are working on it, and I am seeing an improvement every match.”

On Friday, the Cougars travel to play Jac-Cen-Del.
