Linksters face Carls and quad
Unable to clinch wins in the opening two matches of the season, the St. Olaf golf squad will seek to crack the ice this coming week with a meet on Tuesday with Carleton and a quadrangular contest Friday at Keller Golf Course in St. Paul.
Tuesday's match with Carleton will provide the Ole linksmen with a formidable opponent. Carleton, boasting four junior lettermen who aided the Carls in taking second in the conference last year, is reputed to be one of the stronger teams in the conference.
Last Wednesday 'Carleton was blasted by Macalester, 11-4 in a dual meet on the Keller course. Judging the Carls by this would be unwise for as Ole Coach Rolf Mellby put it, "They had a bad day."
Friday's quad-contest with Macalester, Gustavus, and Hamline will give the Vikings a generous portion of MIAC golf talent. Mellby reported that Mac will be the most serious threat to Ole aspiration of victory as they are well-balanced and capable of excellent golf.
Last Friday the Lions scored a near-victory as they tied a strong Macalester squad on the Northfield links. Con Freeman took midwest honors with a 75 while Carl Carlson followed with a 76.
Rain and high winds hampered play but the players scored relatively low considering the condition's. Ole scoring went like this: Bob Angelici-80, Dell Fystrom-83, Dave Kelly-83, and Jerry Tostrud-81.
At River Fall's College the Ole Linksmen placed second in a quadrangular meet. Competing in the event were River Falls College, Bethel College, and Winona State.
