CLAYTON — Senior Noah Thayer and junior Brendan Siehl both shots rounds of 43 Thursday to help lead the Northmont varsity golf team to a 178 to 180 victory over Troy at Meadowbrook at Clayton.
With the victory the Thunderbolts improved to 3-0 overall. The match was played on the par 36 front nine in perfect weather conditions on the well maintained course that provided ideal scoring conditions for both teams.
Medalist honors for the match went to Troy’s Holden Scribner who posted a three over par total of 39.
“Thayer blistered a drive on the par 4, first hole to just 30 yards short of the green,” said Northmont Coach Nathan Hannahan. “His close approach shot led to an opening birdie to jumpstart his round. The only blemish on Siehl’s scorecard was a costly triple bogey 7 on his final hole of the day. Luckily, he made four crucial pars earlier in his round highlighted by a terrific tee shot on the par 3, eighth hole that settled 10 feet from the pin.”
