Trio of golfers set to step up for Boone – Sports – Boone News-Republican

A trio of Boone golfers is set to show what they can do as mainstays.

Christian Bushore, a senior, Dylan Bangs, junior, and Mager Miller, sophomore, were either part-time varsity players or on the fringe last spring.

Now, they’ll be asked to fill a void in the lineup.

“They all gained considerable experience last year,” coach Steve Sandvig said, “but because we were kind of top heavy with seniors, (they) didn’t see as much as I would have liked them to see.”

Bangs played well late into the 2018 season and earned all-Raccoon River Conference honors, after placing seventh at the league meet by shooting an 82.

He averaged 44.3 strokes per nine holes as a sophomore.

Bushore was in and out of the varsity, averaging 44.29 strokes per nine holes and carded an 89 at the PCM Classic.

“I think he’s got a lot of potential for us,” Sandvig said.

Miller continues to improve after a series of promising outings as a member of the Toreadors’ junior varsity.

Weather has been the most difficult obstacle so far, and will likely keep Bangs, Bushore and Miller off the course for a couple more weeks.

“We won’t get outdoors for a while,” Sandvig said. “Even with the rain we’re supposed to get this week, there’s going to be some melting.

“Then, it’s getting the frost out of the ground and getting that thaw taken care of.”

Adding to the practice glitches will be spring break, which is next week.

“I don’t see us being on the course for at least two weeks,” Sandvig said. “We’ll do as much as we can indoors, and get creative with things.

“We’re really not going to get into the real grind of it all for probably at least two weeks before the winter clears up, and we can get everybody back.”

Boone is supposed to open its schedule April 2, against Bondurant-Farrar, but events will likely get backed up as coaches scramble to get duals and tournaments in.

In the meantime, the Toreadors will continue to tweak their work out routine and try to maintain their competitive edge.

“We’ll be going to the gym and hitting inside (with foam golf balls),” Sandvig explained.

“We’ve really got to be committed to being focused in practice and making good use of our time, because you’re still not going to be playing in ideal golf conditions until probably May.”
