Wind couldn’t stop strong finish for Rasmussen

By Michael Johnson, Editor

It huffed and puffed but the 50 mph wind gusts couldn’t deter Washburn senior Jeff Rasmussen from his goal of improving on his eighth place state finish from last year. Rasmussen went up against 130 other golfers at the state tournament in Carrington and shaved off one at a time to earn sixth place in the state. Rasmussen said it was tough being the last one to tee off on the first day as the wind continued to blow harder with each swing of the clubs. But he felt comfortable there having played there last year. It was the wind that threw a wrench in the plan. “Windy days like those, it’s tough,” Rasmussen said. “You can get good shots and not even deserve it.”
