It wasn’t the best of weeks for Folsom High’s golf team, as the Bulldogs battled through some poor play and poor playing conditions. Folsom’s week started with the team posting its highest score of the season on Monday, shooting a 432 at the Thunder Invitational at Sunset Whitney. Brian Knoll shot the low round of 76, followed by Dalton Theis’ 83 and Taylor Knoll’s 88. “We struggled against a good course and a good field,” Folsom coach Steve Burgess said. Two days later the Bulldogs were back at it again during the Delta River League’s second tournament, this time at Empire Ranch. Folsom had plans of improving its second-place position to Jesuit while playing on its home course; however, a strong wind made shooting a good score difficult. “The wind gust from 20 to 30 miles an hour made the course much longer and much tougher,” Burgess said. “Jesuit found a way to finish in 388 and we came in at 420, one stroke in front of Pleasant Grove.” Brian Knoll against led the way with a 74, as Taylor came in at 80 and D.J. Christensen finished his round in 83 strokes. Theis ended up with an 87. “Going into spring break, we will try to recharge the batteries and get ready for our end of the year run into the playoffs,” Burgess added.
