Big hill to climb for North golf

Patriots are 21 strokes behind leaders at IHSAA boys golf tourney

FRANKLIN — In each of the first two rounds of the IHSAA boys golf state tournament, Evan Perdiew’s score proved pivotal.

Terre Haute North needed fifth-score tiebreakers to win the sectional title and to finish in third place at the regional. The regional finish qualified the Patriots for the state finals for the first time since 2000.

Perdiew had the team’s highest score at sectional and regional, but each time it was enough to help his team advance. After the first day of the state finals, it will be up to someone else to play tiebreaker for the Patriots.

Perdiew bounced back after bogeying the first two holes to make 13 straight pars and finish with a 4-over 76 at the Legends of Indiana Course. He shared team scoring honors with fellow senior Sam Pollock, who opened his round with an eagle on the par-5, 501-yard No. 10 and added birdies on No. 6 and No. 7 on the backside.

Their play helped the Patriots finish the first day of the state finals ahead of the only other unranked team in the 15-team field, Triton. North is at 311 as a team after the opening round, 21 shots back of first-round leader Columbus North.

Greencastle’s Luke Brotherton, competing as an individual, also shot a 76 Tuesday.

Perdiew played a practice round with North coach Abe Nasser on Monday.

“He beat me,” Nasser said. “It was a good time.

“I think maybe he got something out of that, got a little confidence. He went out there and made 13 straight pars after bogeying the first two holes and finished pretty strong today.”

Perdiew said the key to his success Tuesday was hitting a lot of greens.

“I didn’t make many putts, but I got close and made a lot of two-putts,” Perdiew said.

Pollock said Perdiew, North’s No. 3 golfer, played “phenomenal” on Tuesday.
