Canby's Rogers, Olson compete in state golf tournaments
A Canby golfer represented the blue and gold at both the 6A boys and girl's tournaments May 16-17. The boy's tournament took place at Trysting Tree Golf Club in Corvallis, while the girls tournament took place at Emerald Valley Golf Club in Creswell.
Canby junior Jake Rogers finished four under par with a total score of 138 in the boy's tournament. That finish was after having a stellar second day where he was five under par. In those 18 holes, Rogers recorded seven birdies against just two bogeys to inch his way into the top five.
The first day of the competition was tougher for Rogers, who finished the day one over par. A double bogey on the seventh hole and a bogey on the fourth were the cause of the stroke over. Otherwise, Rogers parred 14 holes and had a pair of birdies to keep his name amid the top of the leaderboard.
In the girl's tournament, junior Tyler Olson finished 27 over par with a score of 171. That score was good enough to tie Olson for 26th place with Grants Pass senior Kye Daywitt.
Olson finished the first day 14 over par, struggling over the course of the 18 but recording a birdie on the 15th hole. On the second day of the tournament, Olson lowered her score by one stroke to finish the day 13 over pa,r thanks in large part to a birdie on the eighth hole.
