Willy Hein

David City's Willy Hein putts the ball during the David City Invite on April 17.

David City golf hosted its annual home invitational tournament on April 17 and took full advantage of playing on its home course, finishing first as a team with a total of 340 strokes. 

Senior Will Danielson led the Scouts with a round of 81 and a second place finish. 

David City also battled the weather, taking a break for an hour-long lightning delay halfway through the tournament. Though the players returned to different conditions, the Scouts maintained their momentum.

"I am proud of the Scout golf team of their attitude and efforts today," said head coach Tom Van Winkle in comments sent to the Banner-Press. "I thought they competed through some tough conditions with the hour delay and wet and windy conditions to pick up the win. 

"I hope that they can gain some confidence and use this experience to be able to compete at a high level at the conference meet that will be here in a couple of weeks."

Heartland placed second as a team with a 342 total and Humphrey St. Francis' Gabriel Pfeifer was the individual medalist with a 78. 

David City placed three golfers in the top 10 as Ethan Zegers carded a 85 for fifth and Keyan Helgoth scored 86 for seventh. 

Jordan Kracl finished with a 88 and Wiley Hein scored a 91.
