Falcons Guetlin and Lindsay make the cut at state

Two golfers from South Whidbey have a good first day at the state golf finals.

South Whidbey’s Brooks Guetlin shot a two-day score of 150 to place 10th at the 2A golf state finals in Birch Bay Wednesday. Teammate John Lindsay fired a combined score of 155 to place 16th.

Only 80 golfers qualified for state and just 40 made the first day’s cut to move forward.

The South Whidbey boys team placed third with 54.5 points after Hockinson — located north of Vancouver, Wash. — with 190 points and Lynden with 88.5.

Rated the top course in Washington, Loomis Trail Golf Course is a par 72 water hazard-laced nightmare.

“Our boy’s poise and concentration — the way they carried themselves on the course — was outstanding,” Falcon coach Steve Jones said. “I’m really proud of their efforts.”

For Jones, the good news is that Guetlin will be back next year.

“This was only Brooks’ second year playing the game and I have great expectations,” he said.
