Galion golf wins the Bucyrus Elks Invitational

BUCYRUS – Galion coach Bryce Lehman was asked about what he thought of his golfers’ ability to put bad holes behind them easily this early in the season.

“That’s why I have all this gray hair,” he laughed.

After shooting a 165 on the back nine, four of the five Tigers dropped scores on the front for a 152. The team’s 317 total clinched the Bucyrus Elks Invitational title for the second consecutive year ahead of Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference rival Ontario (343) and county foe Wynford (350).

“Early on we didn’t play very well, our first nine was the back,” Lehman said. “Logan (Keller) shoots a 41 then catches me and says he’s on a heater with four birdies in a row. I thought a couple kids would shoot higher based on their demeanor on the course. Nate McMullen shooting an 82 is good score for him , (76) was a good score for Nick (McMullen).

Galion's Logan Keller tees off on No.  6 at The Golf Club of Bucyrus.

“We use this as a practice round for our league tournament — not that we didn’t have interest in this — it’s just an opportunity to get over here and play. But I’m pleased with the scores, last year at the MOAC tournament we shot a 338 and didn’t win the tournament. They’ve played this several times, but anytime you can play it again is a good thing for us.”
