STOCKTON — In a nice start to the season on Monday, the Davis High boys golf team took second place at the Lincoln Invitational, but it was the way the Blue Devils did it that made coach Karl Ronning really happy.

All five DHS scorers shot 83 or better, and not because the Brookside Country Club course was easy. Far from it …

“The course was really hard, the pin placements were really difficult,” Ronning explained. “And there aren’t too many courses out there where the rough is as difficult as at Brookside. It was challenging … and I’m really proud of the guys.

“You get really familiar with your home course so it’s good to get out of your comfort zone and perform well.”

The Devils did just that as returning senior Cyrrus Espino and new player Brandon Strong — a senior Davis hoops star who is playing on the golf team for the first time this spring — each shot 78. Sophomore Sam Yamauchi was right behind with his 79, while junior Preston Walchli, the defending Delta Valley Conference Player of the Year, carded an 81.

Sophomore Andrew Arnheiter rounded out the local scorers with his 83 and junior Patrick Cajandig finished the course in 91 strokes.

According to Ronning, the scores reflect the Blue Devils’ deep roster.

“We’re going to be really competitive just figuring out who the top six will be for each tournament,” said the veteran coach. “I’m excited, with Cyrrus coming back for his senior season and the sophomores like Sam and Andrew coming on. And every year there is always one surprise, one wild card, and it would be really cool if that could be Brandon.”

Ronning added that the Blue Devils will hit the practice links for the rest of this week as they work to figure out who will make up the top six for the Father Barry Open, set for Saturday and Sunday at Ancil Hoffman in Carmichael.

Espino, Strong and Yamauchi will play after scoring below 80 on Monday, leaving eight Devils to compete for the other three spots.
