Lakeland Invitatinal Golf results

 

Saturday did not start the way Spencer Mortola wanted it to.

After hooking his tee shot out of bounds on the first hole at Heron Creek Golf Course in the Lakeland Invitational, Mortola scrambled to card a double-bogey six. The Laker junior went on to bogey five of the next eight holes to finish the front nine in seven-over 43.

The back side, however, was a different story for Mortola, as he parred six of the first eight holes, then birdied the 515-yard, par-five 18th to come home in 36 strokes. His round of 79 earned him medalist honors in the tournament.

Mortola was the only golfer to break 80 amid the unseasonably cold weather conditions that included a brisk, North wind between 10-15 miles per hour. Eric Ruff of Angola finished four shots behind the Laker on the medalist list with an 83.

The Hornets fared much better in the team title chase, however, shooting a score of 339 to claim first prize by 10 strokes over the host Lakers (349). Goshen was third with 354.

Cody Richardson of Lakeland and Denis Weirich of Westview each fired rounds of 85 to tie for fourth place in the individual column.
