Men's Golf Player of the Tournament
ROSS GILBERT - NORTH IDAHO - FRESHMAN
Ross Gilbert, Cookeville HS / Bozeman, MT, helped his Cardinal team to victory Monday scoring a 143, two strokes ahead of runner up Jackson Hall of Spokane. This is Gilbert's second win on the season as he previously won the North Idaho Invitational on September 26.
NIC head coach Russell Grove on Gilbert's play, "I was very proud of how Ross handled the first round at Druids Glenn. The rain was pretty miserable and with the greens being as slow and bumpy as they were it was tough out there. He stayed patient and stayed away from big numbers which kept him in contention. On the second day he cruised around the course shooting 70. He hit every green and one putted two holes. That's about as easy as it gets. Obviously he would have liked to hole more putts, but I'm excited the way he's striking the ball."
