Putting woes slow Nadaline, Tilton at state

ANDERSON — Both Anderson's Morgan Nadaline and Pendleton Heights; Emily Tilton had some putting woes during the first round of the IHSAA State Golf Tournament Friday.

Nadaline finished with a 3-over-par 75 and Tilton carded a 6-over-par 78 going into today's final round.

That put Nadaline seven shots behind leader Harley Dubsky of Valparaiso going into the final 18 holes. Dubsky finished hot and finished at 4-under.

"She just didn't putt as well as I thought she would," said AHS golf coach Bob Windlan. "She was on the green in regulation 13 times but only made two birdie putts. Some of those putts were from 8 to 15 feet."

Her birdies were both at par 3s. She started at No. 10 and had a birdie at the 125-yard hole. She had a bogey at No. 17 but finished her opening nine at even par.

She missed five greens in regulation and took a bogey at every one of them. "She never did get up and down," said Windlan. "That was mostly because of her putting."

Tilton also started her round on the back nine and also started at 1-under after a 3 on No. 11. But five bogeys on the next seven holes left her at 4-over at the turn. She had two more bogeys over the next four holes, but followed that with three pars and a birdie on No. 7, a par-4, 320-yard hole.

"She's not playing very well," said PH coach Tom Harvey. "But she hit a bad second shot at No. 14 at No. 14 into a trap that was well below the hole. But she hit a great shot and hit the putt to save par."

Neither golfer is in an ideal position to challenge for the lead.

"I think she can go around in 75," said Harvey of Tilton prospects for today's round. "If she can get her putting lined up, she can improve her Friday round."

"I am very happy with her ball striking," said Windlan of Nadaline. "The course is playing shorter than I've ever seen it."
