Farmington boys golf: Jensen’s 73 paces Tigers

Farmington’s Lucas Berg shot a pair of 79s for the Tigers last week.

The Farmington boys golf team just missed finishing in the top half of the field on one of its home courses Friday.

The Tigers placed fifth with a team score of 311 strokes at its fourth Missota Conference meet of the spring at Southern Hills Golf Course.

Chanhassen topped New Prague 296-302 for the team title. Chaska was third with a 303, followed by Shakopee with a 309. Red Wing was one stroke behind the Tigers with a 312.

“The scores were low today with the wind down,” Farmington coach Jon Holmes said. “The boys were a tad disappointed they didn't finish in the top three since it is many of their personal home course, but all in all it was a productive day.”

Jake Jensen led the Tigers, firing a career-low round of 73 to place second. Sam Newcomb overcame a rough first hole to place second for the team with a 78 and Lucas Berg followed with his second straight round of 79. Darby Grengs provided the fourth counting score with an 81.

Tyler VanWinkle added an 82 and Isaac Ferm shot an 89. Brock Lange led the JV team with a round of 81.
