Sullivan 12th heading into today’s final round of boys golf state finals

FRANKLIN — It was hot and windy for the start of the IHSAA boys golf state finals Tuesday at The Legends of Indiana Golf Club.

Columbus North was the leader at the conclusion of 18 holes and Sullivan is 12th going into the final round to be played today with tee times beginning at 8 a.m.

Sullivan’s Nathan Pirtle and Greencastle’s Alec Davis, an individual qualifier, each finished with 4-over-par 76 scores to lead the Wabash Valley contingent and were tied for 22nd with eight other players. The Golden Arrows’ Colton Kuppler was not far off their pace, finishing with 78 and tied for 43rd.

Play began at 8 a.m. in sunny, warm, humid conditions with winds that picked up at times.

Sullivan shot 320 and is only one shot out of 11th and two out of ninth with one senior in its lineup.

“That score is not bad with the wind that was brutal. But if you ask any of our players, they will tell you they were not satisfied with their scores. We’ll come back tomorrow …,” said coach Doug Boyd.

Sullivan began play on the No. 10 hole and Pirtle went 41-35 in his round. He was 2 over after three holes.

“It was a super wind. I had trouble hitting the ball off the tee and didn’t make putts. I came back on the second nine,” said the junior, who had three birdies.

Teammate Jace Moody shot 84.

Kuppler went 40-38 without any birdies.

“I had one double [bogey],” said the sophomore. “You had to be precise on your shots with the conditions.”

Luke Willis started with a 35 and finished with 86. “I had two birdies and the wind really affected me the second nine,” he said.

Riley Pirtle got off to a rough start but settled down on the second nine and shot 82. “I was 6 over after five holes then went par-par-birdie on the second nine,” he said.

His second nine at state was similar to the regional when he had four birdies on the first six holes of his second nine.

Drew Cahill of Terre Haute South and Davis teed off at 8:09 a.m. and both were 5 over par after their first nine, each shooting 41.

Davis came back with a 1-under-par 35 on the back to finish with his 76.

“I tweaked my neck on my very first shot and it bothered me. … I battled through it on the [second] nine. Conditions were good. The wind was a big factor, especially on the back,” he said.

Cahill finished with 41-44 for 85. “I could never get into a rhythm … I did not hit the ball well,” he said.

Dylan Meyer of Evansville Central and Michael Vandeventer of Columbus North each were 2 under par for 70 to share the individual lead. Christian Fairbanks of Columbus North was third with 71 and four players had par-72 to tie for fourth.

Davis will tee off at 8 a.m. today and Cahill will start at 8:36. Sullivan tee times begin at 9:21 and wind up at 9:57, the same as they were for the first round.
