Koh ’08 Leads PA vs. Exeter

After suffering tough losses to both St. Marks and Deerfield last week, the Andover Golf team looked to redeem itself during the second leg of competition for the Lovell Cup and the Witherspoon Trophy. Andover’s number one, Nicholas Koh ’08 attacked the course with his distance and was able to make several clutch putts. Exeter struggled even more than Governor’s, as Andover blew past their six-stroke lead with strong play and good teamwork. Following behind Koh was Ben Ho ’11 with a decent score of 43. Will Lindsey ’10 played impressively in the sixth position, garnering a 44. Wutae Lee ’10, Jim Ricker ’09 and Brian Russell ’09 all added 45s and distanced themselves from their Exeter competitors. Following play, Andover is currently seventeen strokes behind Governor’s and is slightly ahead of Exeter in the stroke play competition. Andover has two of the largest competitions of the year on the line Saturday as it will have to finish the season this weekend with some season best scoring to retain the Witherspoon Cup, as Exeter lead’s 4-2 in match play. Andover looks for its top three players, Koh, Ho, and Lee, to break eighty, while the bottom three will have to shoot scores in the mid eighties for Andover to have a chance.
