Indian-logoThe Van-Far golf team had some solid performances competing in recent matches.
In Paris, Brayden Christian was the medalist after shooting a 43 to help the Indians win the match by 42 strokes over Northeast-Cairo.
Jayson Orr shot a 47 to be the match runner-up.
“Real happy with the kids and how they shot that day,” said Van-Far head golf coach Joe Basinger.
“It was playing really tough with high winds. Brayden and Jayson had really nice rounds today. It’s nice to see these kids start getting used to competitive golf and playing like they’re capable of playing.”
In the Palmyra JV Tournament held on Monday, Van-Far finished third with a 403.
Christian was second overall with an 86 while Orr added a 97.
“Brayden played a great round today,” Basinger said. “He isn’t the longest player around but Brayden has a really good short game and he’s been holding a lot of putts which is very important. Jayson has been going through some swing changes at the moment and for him to still finish in the Top-10 is good to see. We are hoping these changes will allow him to be a more consistent ball striker going forward.”
