Fairmont golfers place 2nd, 3rd at events | News, Sports, Jobs

BYRON — Two days after winning their regular-season invitational, the Fairmont Cardinals golf golfers withstood the 35 mph wind gusts to capture third place at the 12-team Byron Invite at Somerby Golf Club.

Solveig Senf and Maggy Totzke each produced top-10 individual showings to guide Fairmont to a score of 388 — 22 strokes off tournament champion Lake City’s winning pace and only one shot back of runner-up Shakopee.

Senf generated a co-team-best three pars to pace her 18-hole round of 45-46-91 to garner fourth place overall — eight shots off of Lake City golfer Emma Berge’s gold-medal mark of 83. Totzke finished in a three-way tie for sixth place individually by firing a 47-48-95, including two pars on the round.

Anika Haugen and Brynn Gustafson completed the Cardinals’ counting scores by carding back-to-back 49s en route to a 98 and a 51-53-104, respectively. Haugen also sank a co-team-best three pars en route to sharing 13th place overall, while Gustafson made Fairmont’s only birdie by carding a 4 on the par-5 first hole en route to tying for 24th place individually.

Bailey Martinson contributed a 56-50-106 to the Cardinals’ effort, while Lauren Davis sank one par to net a 55-53-108.

The Fairmont girls team tees off the Redwood Valley Invite at 2 p.m. Thursday in Redwood Falls.
