Finally under sunny skies and favorable spring playing conditions, the 2013 Packerland Golf season got underway yesterday. Sturgeon Bay’s golf team earned a first place finish with a very consistent effort. They were 19 strokes better than second place Sevastopol. Gibraltar, N.E.W. Lutheran, Oconto and Southern Door rounded out the field.
The top medalist on Thursday was Sevastopol’s Bryce Birmingham with the low round of 40 at Idlewild Golf Course. Pioneer teammate Sam Potier tied for second with Sturgeon Bay’s Bryce Hartl each shooting a 42.
Also from Sturgeon Bay, Matthew Seiler and Sean Hogan each finished in the top five. Gibraltar sophomore Sam Higgebotham shot a 45 to tie for fifth place.
