Hatchets place sixth at Fuzzy Zoeller

SELLERSBURG — Washington recorded its best finish in the Fuzzy Zoeller Invitational Saturday, placing sixth in a 13-team field.

The Hatchets finished with a 351 team score, paced by a round of 84 from Clay Hatton.

"Clay led us with a steady 84," Washington coach Bill Ricke said. "His ball striking was good." The field was forced to wait for four hours before an early-morning fog cleared. This was our best ever score and finish in this tournament," Ricke said.

"The course was set from the back tees and the ground was wet. Our players placed 19-39 in the 65-player field." Hatton was followed by Cam Lancaster (86), Connor Brown (90), Tyler Stoll (91) and Andy Garland (97).

"Cam played well. He made par or bogey on 16 holes, but was eight over on the other two," Ricke said. "Connor played with a great deal of poise. He had 15 holes of either par or bogey, but went 10 over on the other three.

"Tyler's driving stats were really good," Ricke said. "His iron play cost him, but he can turn that around with a little work. Andy (who was competing in his first varsity golf event) certainly learned a lot. The experience will certainly help him in the  future.² Washington (7-5) now plays Saturday at the Golf Club of Old Vincennes - the team¹s first look at the traditional sectional site of the season.

"I was happy with the start," Ricke said. "Overall, we played a steady round of golf. We had instances where we made some big numbers which vaulted our scores. In general, we made par and bogey our main score, and that is acceptable. Our goal now is to eliminate big numbers that we threw in the mix."
