Trevor Uhl of Canterbury won last year’s invitational.

Course is champ’s foe

Canterbury’s Trevor Uhl isn’t looking to play against the past in the Fort Wayne Country Club’s High School Invitational today. The senior simply wants to play against the golf course.

Uhl is the defending boys medalist after shooting a 4-over 75 last year and will be among the group of of the best prep golfers from northeast Indiana who will try to tame the FWCC course.

“Being the defending champion has no influence on how I am approaching the invitational this year,” Uhl said. “I’ve prepared for the invitational like any other tournament, and in order to be competitive, I will need to show up (today) ready to go.”

Uhl was one of 11 players who broke 80 in last year’s invitational, beating out DeKalb’s Spencer Shoemaker and Triton’s Quinten Carpenter, who both shot 76.

Uhl bogeyed his first four holes after starting his round on No. 3 before getting it going. It was the first time Uhl had played in the invitational, making him a veteran going into today’s outing.

“The FWCC is a difficult course in that it is very narrow and will cost you a lot of strokes if you aren’t consistently hitting fairways,” Uhl said. “The greens are fast and each hole has a unique green in regards to slope and where approach shots need to be landed. All aspects of the player’s game need to be strong in order to score well at the FWCC.”

Liz Carlson, a 2012 Fremont graduate, won last year’s girls title.

Also playing today for the boys are several players from a Bishop Dwenger team that finished seventh at the state finals, as well as Heritage senior Carter Dornseif, who played at state as an individual. The girls side includes Katie Skidmore from DeKalb, Jaycee Bunner from Blackhawk Christian and Nicole Norton from Concordia.

The invitational will give Uhl a chance to offset a disappointing finish to the high school season.

Canterbury was fourth in the sectional by a single stroke to third-place Homestead. Bishop Dwenger won the sectional, played at Canterbury’s home course at Chestnut Hills with a 310. Heritage was second with a 317, Homestead third with a 318 as the last advancing team. Canterbury was fourth with a 319.

Uhl’s 78 was just two strokes from advancing as an individual. Teammate Trent Van Horn advanced to the regional with a 76.
