PH displays depth, dismantles Delta

PENDLETON — Three of Pendleton Heights top five golfers sat out Tuesday’s match against Delta, and the Arabians barely missed a beat.

Tyler Meyer and Chase Simpson fired low nine-hole scores of 36 to pace the Arabians to a 159-190 victory over the Eagles.

“A couple guys played really well,” Pendleton Heights coach Jim Phillips said. “I thought it was cold and windy out there. Overall, we didn’t play bad tonight."

Phillips said that Colin Proctor, Trevar Denney and Zach Farrer sat out so they could get some individual work in as well as to give other players a chance to get experience and work.

Meyer and Simpson filled in as the No. 1 and 2 golfers in the Arabians' lineup, and each were at even-par through their first six holes.

They both carded birdies on the 288-yard dogleg left par-4 No. 16 to go under par.

Meyer hit a towering tee shot that settled on the front fringe of the green. He then pitched up to about 4 feet from the cup and finally rolled in the birdie putt.

“It was downwind, and it’s a pretty short hole,” Meyer, who posted his nine-hole low for the year, said. “I just hit a nice little three wood with a smooth swing and had a good ball.”

But their under-par score quickly faded during the final two holes.

Holes No. 17 and 18 played as the hardest for the Arabians, as Daniel Amrine carded the only par on either hole, No. 17, for Pendleton Heights.

“I am not a big fan of hole 17,” Simpson said. “I hit it out of bounds a lot. I duck-hooked it and got lucky and hit a tree, and it stayed in. Then hit a shot onto the green and three-putted.”

The sophomore said that with the white out-of-bounds stakes on the left, the hole gets into the players' minds as they try to keep the ball in play.
