Wright City senior Deryk Rowland fell shy of qualifying for the MSHSAA Championships at Norwoods Golf Club on Monday.

He carded a 97 during his final round of his prep career.

“Overall, for it being a different course, I played pretty well,” said Rowland. “I only had about two holes that messed me up. Besides that I played pretty well.”

Rowland was making his first Class 3 Sectional appearance in his fourth year on the varsity level for the Wildcats.

“Honestly, I was just happy that I made it to sectionals,” he acknowledged. “Going into the day I didn’t have any big hopes of qualifying for state. If I did, great, but I just wanted to go out and play.”

Rowland carded a 48 on the front nine, before recording a 49 on the back.

“I was proud of his round,” said Coach Bill Schaffer. “He did a good job.”

“There were a few strokes that I should have got back but didn’t,” said Rowland.

He says the greens were the other troublesome part of his game.

“Putting was difficult because the greens were slower on some holes and a lot faster on others,” said Rowland. “The rest of my game was pretty well on for the most part.”

The lowest score of the day was recorded by Southern Boone’s Blake Lammers, who shot an even par 72.

The individual qualifier cutoff was an 83, while Palmyra and Macon advanced their entire teams to state.

“I was thinking I’d have to shoot around an 88 to make it, but there were some pretty good scores that came in,” said Rowland.

Schaffer says course conditions improved as the day progressed.

“An awful lot of yesterday depended on where you started on the course,” said Schaffer. “The longer the day went, the better the course got.”

Schaffer says Rowland has been a franchise player for the program, playing the No. 1 role, even as a freshman.

“He, J.J. Pluchinski and Daniel Donaldson really stand out among the rest in recent years,” said Schaffer. “Deryk has been a leader on this team nonstop.”

He has shouldered heavy responsibility since joining the team and was named this year’s Most Valuable Player.

“I’ve pretty well carried the team, shooting 15 to 20 strokes less than anybody else,” said Rowland. “A lot of teams we knew we wouldn’t be much of a threat as a team, but we were just happy to get out and play.”

“He has certainly been an important part of our program,” added Schaffer.
