Broken Bow likes playing at home
Swedes improve, but it’s not enough.
Playing their home course worked well for Broken Bow golfers as they posted four of the top nine scores while winning their own invitational Friday.
The Indians finished with a team score of 329, compared to 332 for second place Holdrege.
Gothenburg took sixth out of eight teams with a score of 394.
Swede coach Don Graham said he was encouraged by the improved scores from the day before although warmer temperatures and an easier course also contributed to the 29-stroke difference.
Adam Speck had the third best score for the Swedes after one round but improved seven strokes on his second nine to finish with a team-low score of 95.
Jake Matthies shot a consistent 49-49 for 98. Drake Brand was close behind with a 99.
The Swedes will play Friday at Ogallala in the Southwest Conference Meet which is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. MT. Gothenburg competes in the Cozad Invitational at 9:30 a.m. Monday and then travels to Scottsbluff for a 9 a.m. MT tee time on Tuesday.
