Carter Broek shoots a 165 at state golf

FORT DODGE-For the first nine holes Friday, May 26, and Saturday, May 27, things were going Carter Broek’s way as the lone representative for the Western Christian boys’ golf team at Class 2A state golf at Lakeside Golf Course in Fort Dodge. But a couple bad holes affected Broek’s overall mindset and he finished 41st individually in the tournament.

Competition began at 10:30 a.m. Friday, May 26, and the first round went well as Broek shot an 81. But Wolfpack coach Jim Eekoff noted that score could have been much lower. On hole three and hole 10, Broek shot 6s and on hole 15 he shot an 8.

“The first day he had three bad holes and the rest of the day was awesome,” said Eekhoff. “Fifteen of the 18 holes he was one over (par). On the other three he was eight over. He had two bogeys and a quadruple bogey on three holes that really hurt his round.”

On Saturday, May 27, Broek had a good start on the front nine by shooting a 38. But on the back nine, he had trouble staying in bounds and ended with a 46 for a final round total of 84 and a 165 score for the tournament.

“Then the last day on the first round (first nine holes) he had a 38, which was excellent. Then the second round (back nine) he had a 46 because he had three out-of-bounds,” Eekhoff said. “So for the most part he golfed really well. He just had a few really bad holes each day.”

Eekhoff said Broek struggled at times with the mental part of the game.

“It was the same holes each day. I think he just got frustrated and lost his confidence a little bit, especially on the last day with the last nine (holes). He just finished very poorly because he got kind of discouraged when things weren’t going well. That 46 is not what he normally shoots,” he said

But Eekhoff felt the overall experience will pay off for Broek heading into next season.

“It was a great experience and I think he saw that he can golf with the guys that were there. He’s just got to have a little more consistency,” Eekhoff said. “We’ve got a lot of guys that are pretty even. I think he is obviously one of our top golfers, but I think (as a whole) we’ll have a pretty good team with some really good golfers.”

Winning the individual state title in Class 2A was Carter Stochi of New Hampton with a 140 (72-68). Winning the team title in Class 2A was Clear Lake with a 601. Kuemper Catholic came in second place with a 604 and Panorama was third with a 607.
