June 27, 2018

The second day for 9-year-old golfer Oliver Betschart proved a tough experience but he held on to tie for 2nd place on 89 [40 - 49] in the 12 & under age group at the Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club hosted by the North Florida PGA.

Oliver’s father, Marcus Betschart, beaming with pride, described how Oliver encountered difficulty on the long #12 water hole but rebounded with a par on the the very next hole and parred the final hole to tie for 2nd place, losing out on retrogression.

“Oliver struggled a bit and had a couple of bad holes but he handled it well and was able to keep things together bouncing back with a par on 13 after a 10 on #12 [lost ball and one in the water]and also finishing the 18th with a par and tie for 2 nd place at 89,” he said.

“It was hot today 92 degrees humid and no wind. Ironically, both the 1st place winner and the boy that tied Oliver are both 12-years-old, so Oliver knows what he has to do. He loved the experience and is already looking forward to the next tournament.”
