The Menlo Golf team played in the worst conditions of the season fighting 30 mph winds, cold temperatures, and steady rain at the Gunn Invitational featuring 8 teams from the Peninsula area. What began as steady rain in the beginning of the match turned into heavy rain with 6 holes remaining and really impacted play.
Junior Andrew Buchanan shot an even par 72 and tied Senior Kevin Knox of SHP for medalist honors. Buchanan started slowly and was 3 over after 5 holes. Under difficult conditions, Buchanan finished strong going 4 under over the last seven holes to get back to even par.
Senior and Co-captain Will Petit fired a 79 and was just a few strokes over par until succumbing to the drenched hands and wet grips on the last 4 holes. This was a consistent theme for most of the team. Jackson Dean shot an 80, Ethan Wong shot an 83 and Senior James Huber shot a 91 to round out the scoring.
Andrew Buchanan (Jr) 72
Will Petit Sr) 79
Jackson Dean (Sr) 80
