BARRON—Behind his first competitive eagle on Friday, Grantsburg junior Jordan Knutson posted a 73 at Pheasant Hills on his way to winning the 36-hole Baldwin-Woodville/Somerset tournament last Friday and Saturday.

Knutson and senior Drew Alderman were the only two players for the Pirates.

“I believe Drew shot his lowest competitive 18-hole round on Friday,” coach John Addison remarked.

Alderman tied for 18th place.

The players played 18 holes at Pheasant Hills near Baldwin on Friday and another 18 at Bristol Ridge outside of Somerset on Saturday.

Tuesday’s opening conference match at Grantsburg was postponed to Monday, April 27.

Knutson cards 73 for win

BARRON—Despite not fielding a complete team for the first match of the season, John Addison, coach of the Grantsburg Pirate Golf team, considers last Wednesday’s meet a good start.

“Jordan (Knutson) won the event,” Addison explained. “He shot a two-over par 73.”

The Barron Invite, as opposed to West Lakeland conferences matches, was an 18-hole affair.

“It was good experience for the guys,” the coach remarked.

The only other Pirate golfer to finish the round was Drew Alderman, who carded an 83.

“Drew made some choices which kept him from a top-seven finish,” Addison reported.

The third golfer from Grantsburg, Paul MacKean, chipped and putted well. He withdrew before finishing all 18 holes.

“I had him working on different parts of his game,” Addison explained. “I didn’t necessarily want him to finish.”

Addison walked some eight miles while his golfers were on the course Wednesday.

“The kids appreciate me being out there,” he said.
