No Tiger hardware at Hub City Open


By Jay Davis
The Tigers had to settle for landing outside the medal stand at the Hub City Open in Aberdeen on Tuesday.
Eric Looyenga finished just off the medal pace with an 87 and part of a tie for 22nd place.
“Eric played pretty solid golf,” said coach Jason Weisbeck. “His play is coming right along. He has worked hard and it is paying off.”
Tyler Villbrandt and David Jensen finished in the top two-thirds. Villbrandt tied for 32nd with a 92. Jensen came in tied for 38th with a 94.
“Tyler and David rounded out our two and three spots,” said Weisbeck. “Each of them had a tough moment, but they worked through it. They still have better rounds in their bags.”
The course was tough on Trent Hammer, Trevor Jerome and Joey Heil. They finished closer to the back of the field. Hammer shot 108, Jerome 114 and Heil 127.
“Trent, Tanner and Joey struggled from time to time,” said Weisbeck. “It will be interesting to see what these guys do the remainder of the season. We will need them to step up in order to compete in our region. I feel they are up to the challenge.”
The Tiger golfers have one week to hone their skills before heading to an invitational in Redfield on Tuesday.
