Comets continue to lag behing Tunstall in golf

SoVaNow.com / September 02, 2013
Tunstall continued to set a blistering pace in Piedmont district regular season golf action Wednesday.

Tunstall fired a team score of 295 at Greens Folly, leading a four-team competition. Host Halifax County lost, finishing second with a 311.

Peter Gasperini had a round of 74, two over par. “It wasn’t what I hoped for. I didn’t manage my mistakes,” he said. “I hit the ball very well. The putter was non-cooperative.”

Josh Irby had a 76, Joey Gasperini had a 79 and freshman Jamie Binner had an 82. Gasperini said the freshman stepped up as his scores continue to improve.

“I think the younger guys are really going to help our team out this year,” said Gasperini. He noted the older guys have been working to help Binner.

Chase Wilkerson had a solid round with 85, as he showed more improvement.

“The team’s getting a little better. The younger guys are starting to step up. The scores haven’t been what we had hoped for so far this year. Individuals have played good here and threre, but the consistency we’ve all hoped for isn’t quite there yet,” said Peter Gasperini.

“Tunstall has such a solid team. They’re deep through their top six. Their five (golfer) shot even par today,” said P. Gasperini.
