Yesterday Ram Golf traveled to Atlantic, Iowa for the Trojan Invite. Glenwood finished in a first place tie with Carroll Kuemper with an impressive 298 but Carrol Kuemper would win the Tournament after a 5th Score Tiebreaker. Glenwood’s Eli Bales finished second overall with a 72 on the day. Colton Book’s 73 earned him 4th place individually. Coach Joyner was proud of his team as they broke all four possible team/individual records at Nishna Hills for a Ram Team/ Ram Individual.
Those Records were the following:
New Front Nine Record for a Glenwood Team is 145 (previous was 151)
New Back Nine Record for a Glenwood Team is 151 (previous was 163)
Front Nine by Individual Ram: Eli Bales 33 (even) (previous was Clay Davis 34 in 1975)
Back Nine by Individual Ram: Ryan Leath 35 (-1) (previous was Rhodes 2016/Gotschall 2002 37)

Coach Joyner’s Recap as Rams defeat the Cardinals:
The Rams beat the Clarinda Cardinals on a blustery day at the Clarinda Country Club by a score of 157-184. Ryan Leath carded an excellent +4, 37 to win medalist honors and Colton Book carded out Pierce Harrington to earn runner-up with matching 39s.
Man, I don't know if I'm more sunburnt or wind burnt. Those were some tough conditions and we pushed through and put up some pretty good scores. The wind was extreme all day and it took a while to get adjusted. Back at it tomorrow at the Atlantic Tourney.
