Young Ladies ZEBRA GOLF PREVIEW 2019
The Lady Z's will start the 2019 season with several returning starters including the 2018 IHSAA Sectional Champion Kristianna Lingenfelter, Marley, Strasser, Ashlyn Foster, and Maddie Henning.  
 
The 2019 Lady Zebras team will also include little Karah Lingenfelter.  Karah will be a freshman in the Fall and has some prior golf experience which could make the Zebras a potential threat to win the TRC tournament (Kristianna Lingenfelter & Marley Strasser were both All Conference contributors in 2018).  If Coach Chad Thomas can get this team to gel, they may even challenge for a birth out of the Sectional and into the IHSAA Regional Tournament at Noble Hawk in Kendallville, In.  Regardless, it will be 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 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 wed
ge.
Young Mens ZEBRA GOLF PREVIEW 2019
The Zebras Linksters return their top 4 players from a team that squeaked out a trip to the IHSAA Regional Tournament in 2018.  Sophmore Reece Renie played the #1 position for most of the 2018 season and is expected to lead the Zebras.  Junior Kalvary Lingenfelter had the low Zebra score at the Regional and is expected to play solidly at #2.  Sophomore Wade Shafer made great strides in 2018 and will ultize his solid fundamentals to post a valuable score every round as well.  Senior Wes Scobie seemed to be a little off last season but is expected to contribute throughout the season. The remaining varsity position is expected to be hotly contested. Junior Andrew Dunwoody appears to have the inside track to the #5 position but Junior Jason Salyer and Sophomore Andrew Bauch will round out the roster and could certainly contribute with a strong effort early in the season.
 
The overall outlook for 2019 should be to expect a highly 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 possible 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!
