GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – Bobby Moyer has yet to lose a tournament at Glenwood Springs Golf Club.On Monday, the Aspen freshman and several-time Soda Pop Open champ picked up his first high school win at the course known as The Hill. The Skier’s 77, which would have been much lower had he not taken a nine on his 13th hole, led all swingers on a warm day in Glenwood. “I played really good until about the 13th hole,” Moyer said. “I had a couple other bad holes. … I wish I didn’t have [the nine]. Then I could have gone under par.”Still, Moyer’s 7-over-par round proved enough to deliver a one-stroke win over Moffat County’s Mark Dockstuder. Back in third was Cortez’s Brian Grubbs.

Kevin Flohr netted the top mark for the host Demons, shooting an 83 that landed the sophomore a share of eighth place with Montrose’s Kevin Masterson and Roaring Fork’s Micah Evonitz.Like Moyer, Flohr lamented a rough stretch that upped his score.”I played good until I had a triple on 5 and a double on 7, on the back,” he said. “I had a 40 on the front.”Still, it was a huge improvement over Flohr’s previous tournament showing this season – a trip to Battlement Mesa Golf Club in which he shot a 107.

Flohr credited his performance to home-course advantage. He’s been playing The Hill since he was 6 years old.Taylor Mays posted Glenwood’s next-best score, an 87. Michael Braklow shot a 90.Cortez prevailed in the team standings, its top three golfers combining on a 242. Moffat County was second (251) among the 13 varsity teams in attendance, and Battle Mountain took third (255). Right behind the Huskies in fourth was Glenwood Springs (260).
