Golf plays last event of fall season

Wednesday saw temperatures in the mid 70s with a brisk wind that gusted 15 to 25 mph. A northwest cold front came in overnight dropping temperatures to the low 50s and depositing about half an inch of rain on the golf course. The rain resumed about an hour before the second round and continued through the first three holes of the second day. Rain resumed half way through the round and continued for the rest of the day dropping another two-thirds to three-quarters of an inch of rain during second-round play. Temperatures hovered at 49 degrees as golfers finished.

The Baker Varsity played well the first round and posted a first round low team score of 315. However a rules question with Baker junior Adam Taylor’s first round regarding the play of a second ball on hole 18 under the “doubt as to procedure” rule was resolved the morning of the second round by disqualifying Adam’s first-round score of 75. The varsity squad was forced to count the no. 5 man’s score of 83, dropping the team out of first place and into fourth place behind the Baker JV (first round 319).

Confronted with brisk northwest winds, a soggy golf course, cold temperatures, and on-and-off rains, the Baker varsity, led by Adam Taylor’s second round 74, stepped up its intensity and played an outstanding second round while posting a team score of 310 (74-78-78-80), 9 strokes better than the tournament’s second-place host team, Ottawa University.
