Montezuma–Cortez’s Jakob Rudosky swept the two-day Durango Invitational. He was the individual medalist Monday at Hillcrest with a 73, then again Tuesday at Dalton Ranch with a 76. Overall, he was tournament medalist with a 149, leading the Panthers to a team victory, too.
Greg Gibson of Grand Junction struggled like everyone else to stay out of Dalton Ranch’s hazards, even if he shot a second-best 77 on Tuesday. “They had some really nasty pin placements: up on ridges, down in holes,” Gibson said.
Geese weren’t the only living hazard Cory Gillespie had to compete with; a group of cows had to be chased off the 17th fairway before Gillespie could tee off. Still, the freshman was the Demons’ top golfer with a 79 on Tuesday and sixth overall with a two-day total of 156 at his home tournament.
Durango’s Trevor Bogus wasn’t the only golfer to find some frustration at Dalton Ranch Golf Club on Tuesday. “It was a tough day, I think, for everyone out there,” Durango High School golf coach Kirk Rawles said. “This is as tough as Dalton could play.”
After shooting an 80 at Hillcrest on Monday to stay in the hunt, Durango’s Bo Ward struggled with Dalton Ranch on Tuesday, finishing with an 87 and a 165 overall. Still, DHS head coach Kirk Rawles thinks Ward has a shot at qualifying for the state tournament at regionals next weekend in Cortez.
