Young Mens ZEBRA GOLF PREVIEW 2017
The Zebras Linksters lose 3 players from last season's SECTIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM and will be an underdog for the 2017 title but there are possibilities....  Senior and #1 player Killian Bailey returns and has had the low scoring average in each of his first 3 seasons.  Senior, #2 Player and individual Sectional Champion Jackson Sawyer also returns to the line-up.  Then, Sophmore Wes Scobie and Freshman Kalvary Lingenfelter are expected to contribute to the top 5 early and often.  Juniors Josh Wooten and Trey Adley were new to the game 2 years ago but will likely contend for a top 5 spot with newcomers Garrett Eytcheson and Freshman Jacob Mark.  The remainder of the team (5 Freshmen) is completely inexperiences and hoping to learn a significant amount this season that could pay dividends in later seasons. 
 
The overall outlook for 2017 should be to expect a moderately competitive team but one that will need to improve throughout the season if they hope to steal a Sectional Championship.  Regardless of the team position, it is highly likely the Zebras will send someone to the Regional and hopefully on to the IHSAA State Finals.   I'm anxious to see how the new short game drills and games will impact scoring.  There is quite alot of work to do.  GO STRIPE IT ZEBRAS!

Young Ladies ZEBRA GOLF PREVIEW 2016
The Lady Z's will start the 2017 season with a very young team.  Four time State Finalist and Kinley Lingenfelter will be playing for Philadelphia University in the Fall and will be sorely missed.  Several returning players from last seasons team will be Sophmores in the fall and will be called upon to contribute respctable scoring.  Ashliegh Navarro, Renae Bickle, Ashlyn Foster, Maddie Henning,  Abbie Sheetz, Marley Strasser, and Kelsey McKee will all contribute.  If the zebras are going to be competitive they will likely have to do it with balanced scoring and a solid line-up of 5 potential contributors.  Freshman Kristianna Lingenfelter has more tournament experience than the other players and would be a welcome addition to the squad but is currently homeschooled and has not made a committment to attend RHS (like 3 of her 4 older sisters have done) in the Fall.  The Zebra's season will be largely dependent on the hard work they put in over the summer and the effort they make to solidify fundamentals.  I do think Coach Chad Thomas is hoping to make a run and I certainly think this team is capable of a few suprises.
 
The 2017 Lady Zebras team will still be an underdog starting the fall campaign but it is always fun to watch these Z's try to catch their stride.  If nice progress is made this season, the young Z's could be a force in 2018 & 2019. GO STRIPE IT ZEBRAS!
Round Barn PGA Professional Lyle Lingenfelter
has designed a series of putters under the Intelligent
Design name and has limited quantities available for retail
distribution.  The 3 models (Believe, Trust, Expect) provide 3 slightly varied balance points to accomadate different stroke types and are available in either bead blasted silver or flat black oxide.  Each head is available with or without a sightline.  The 303 stainless steel putters are 100% made in the United States right down to the epoxy, grip tape, solvent and paint fill! The computer programming work is being done locally by JE Engineering (Jeff Elliot) and the putters are being milled at Machined Castings (Monte Hoffman), also in Rochester, Indiana.   Headcovers with the Intelligent Design Logo and magnetic closure are made by Delilah's Headcovers in Evansville, IN.  A complete list of USA Components will be available.
 
The design specifics will be presented fully in a pamphlet and a short video demonstrating the benefits will be posted as well.  Custom options are available for the milling of a name on the heel or toe area of the putter face although this milling has to be planned and done in small batches about every 3-4 months.   
 
Prototype putters have already won several college events, IGA Mountain Dew events, IGA Prep events and been played at the IHSAA State Finals.  One PGA Tour Professional has tested the putter as well.

A Brief Description....

The Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek (formerly Mill Creek Golf Course) is a traditional 18 hole layout located in downtown Rochester, Indiana. The Golf Shop moved to its current location, at the renovated Gerig Round Barn on the south side of the course, in January of 2005 and the golf course layout has also undergone some routing changes. The course is asthetically pleasing and challenging for golfers of all ability levels and additional improvements are underway that will continue to establish the Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek as one of the best places to play for golfers seeking both quality and affordabilty.

The course par is a very traditional 36-36 = 72, and each nine is a challenging blend of reasonable birdie opportunities and tough pars. The opening hole is a difficult starting hole that features a small lake down the left side and Mill Creek down the right side and crossing the fairway. Holes 2 through 4 offer a little relief and a chance to get into the flow of the round. The 5th through the 9th may well be one of the more difficult finishes to a nine in this part of the state. Included in that streatch is a Par 3 that can play up to 221 yards, a moderately long dogleg Par 4, and 3 consecutive holes that feature water almost entirely down the left side. The 10th is a par 3 that begins from an elevated tee in the shadow of the Barn and heads due East to a two tiered green gaurded on the left by a well placed bunker. The 11th is a 580 yard Par 5 that is reachable only by the longest of hitters. The 12th is a risk and reward Par 5 that is reachable in two with a carry over a large waste area or easily playable in 3 shots without ever needing to unleash the driver. The 17th is another risk and reward hole that can be a great temptation. A well struck tee shot will carry Mill Creek and leave less than 100 yards while a layup is much safer but requires a 175-200 yard approach. The 18th is a short par 4 that also features a small lake on the left and Mill Creek on the right. Scramblers may try to drive the green while those playing for their own score will likely hit a 200 yard tee shot and a wedge.
