Ike’s Roberts fires 79 at Karsten Creek
STILLWATER With Edmond North's team lapping the field at the Class 6A state tournament on Tuesday, Eisenhower junior golfer Mikey Roberts put his head down and went to work.
Roberts played the first 13 holes at Stillwater's Karsten Creek just 1-over par, including birdies at No. 1 and No.11, to card a final round 79 to lead the Eagles.
"He played really well. I thought for a minute there he'd be able to get in the 73 or 74 range," Ike head coach Maurice Mayfield said. "He had some trouble on the back, but he hung in there and made pars late in the day to keep it under 80."
Pars on 17 and 18 completed a round that could've been better if not for Karsten's unforgiving layout.
"If you miss by a little out there you're looking at bogey at best," Mayfield said. "Mikey just barely missed on a few iron shots and it cost him three or four strokes."
Playing in only marginally improved conditions from Monday's first and second rounds, Ike's Bentley Bross fired a final round 83 to lead the Eagles with a two-day total of 250. Roberts also carded a 250.
"Bentley played better than what his score showed on both days," Mayfield said. "Each round he had one or two holes that killed him."
