Vogwill places 10th at districts

Thursday, October 19, 2017 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

Mason Vogwill lived on the edge for the final two weeks of his high school golf career.

The Northwestern senior finished just two shots over the cut in a district qualifier to earn his spot in the championships. Then at last Wednesday’s District 11 Class 3A tournament, Vogwill found himself on the other side of the cut by a slim margin. He shot 82 at districts, which was held at Olde Homestead after a postponement Monday moved the event from Lehigh Country Club. He tied for ninth place and was one stroke short of moving on to the PIAA East Regional Championship.

Pair of Aces

Ben Tetzlaff makes two holes in one during a nine-hole practice round

On Monday Ben Tetzlaff joined an exclusive club in the world of golf. Then about an hour later he became one of the club’s most exclusive members.

The Parkland senior hit his first career hole in one during a practice round at Iron Lakes. Four holes later he hit another one.

“It was surreal, amzing and shocking, really,” he said. “I still can’t believe it and I’m the one who did it.”

Tetzlaff, whose been playing the game for just five years, got his first ace when he launched a gap wedge to a 104-yard flag on No. 2 at Iron Lakes and landed it just behind the hole.
