Freshman Ryan Meyer capped off his first year in the Oakdale High School boys golf program with a solid performance at the CIF Masters Tournament. Meyer qualified as an individual to play at The Reserve at Spanos Park for the CIF Masters Golf Tournament by shooting at 71 at the CIF Division III Tournament on Monday, May 7 at Morgan Creek Golf Course.
Under high winds of nearly 25 miles per hour, Meyer shot an 81 on the day at the par 72 Reserve course, placing him second amongst Division III players.
“In my group they were all upperclassmen and tremendous golfers,” Meyer said.
He added that he enjoyed the experience of playing in the prestigious tournament and hopes to return to The Masters again during his high school career.
“It was a great experience and I had a lot of fun playing. It takes a lot to get there and you are playing with the best in the area,” Meyer explained. “I hope to reach the tournament again and hopefully shoot better.”
As a team Oakdale finished third in the Division III Tournament with a score of 397, nine strokes off the leader Vista del Lago. Along with the 71 from Meyer, Calvin Reed shot 77 on the par 72 course. David Myrtakis posted a 78 for the Mustangs and rounding out the day for Oakdale were Tristan Jaramillo (85), Max Moore (86) and Kyle Seese (97). Overall 2018 will go down as a memorable season for the program as they went undefeated in the Valley Oak League and won the league championship in the process.
