Folsom High’s golf team won the Masters Golf Tournament on Monday at The Reserve at Spanos Park in Stockton. The Bulldogs survived a difficult day of golf which featured terrible winds, winning the tournament with a score of 417, one stroke in front of rival Jesuit, who won the Delta River League, as well as the divisional tournament. Taylor Knoll shot the low round for the Bulldogs, scoring a 78, and his brother, Brian, followed with an 82. D.J. Christensen shot an 84; closely followed by Dalton Theis (86) and Alex Morgan (87). Zack Bouchard rounded out the scoring with a 108. It is the school’s first section championship in golf. “We felt that going into this tournament that we had a chance and we also felt that the more windy it became the better for our team,” Folsom coach Steve Burgess said. “I believe that the only reason it being windy was to our advantage was because we talked about it and decided we would not let it bother us. Our scores weren’t great, but us and Jesuit were the only teams to have their five best scores in the seventies or eighties. “I’m extremely proud of this team. As they learned to believe and trust in their games, they began to win and then realized that they are a team that can compete with anyone.” The Bulldogs will advance to the Nor-Cal Tournament on Monday at Butte Creek Country Club in Chico.
