FAIRMONT — Fairmont’s Brock Lutterman has a mission — to make the Class AA state golf tournament.
The Cardinal senior produced the meet for the duration of his sophomore year, but missed by one particular stroke as a junior final year.
He knows what he wants to do to get the job completed — playing two consecutive rounds of golf in the Section 3AA tournament played at Oakdale Golf Course in Buffalo Lake.
Lutterman had to shoot low sufficient on the 1st day of the tournament to advance to the sectional final, which will be played May possibly 31 at Oakdale Golf Course.
His Day 1 score of 41-41-82 earned him a tie for 15th all round and a spot in the Day two occasion.
“I produced it to (the state meet) as a sophomore, but I fell a tiny bit final year, thanks to a undesirable 1st day,” Lutterman stated. “I really feel very good and I really feel confident in my game this time in the tournament.” I have to place it properly.”
Lutterman practiced the day prior to the sectional tournament and is mentally and physically prepared for his sectional tournament. His nine-hole typical is 37 and his 18-hole typical is 76.
He has been a constant presence at or close to the major of the standings in just about every occasion played by the Cardinals golf group this spring.
Mother Nature also played a element as she threw all sorts of climate for him, from cold and windy in the early season to sunny and warm this week.
Lutterman held on and continued to make low scores. He lately shot a 1-more than 73 in the Cardinal Invitational at Interlaken Golf Course exactly where he completed second.
He produced the selection to take his golf game to the subsequent level. He committed to play his college golf at Morningside University in nearby Sioux City, Iowa. Morningside is a member of the Terrific Plains Athletic Conference.
Lutterman will play his college golf beneath the tutelage of head coach Nick Vanderscheid.
“He’s a good guy and he showed me about campus when I came to stop by,” Lutterman stated. “I will do my very best to crack the varsity lineup my freshman year.” It will be tricky for the reason that the group has young, very good golfers. I need to have to strengthen my game, but I can do that.
“I’m excited about the chance. I talked to a couple of guys on the group and they stated the student-athletes are treated fantastic.”
The varsity men’s golf group plays a fall schedule that runs from late August to early October and then competes in the spring, from late February to late April.
Lutterman also thought of playing golf at Iowa Central, Winona State, Minnesota State and Bemidji State, but Morningside appealed the most.
“I appreciate the campus, the academics, the student life and the golf plan,” Lutterman stated. “Sioux City is major sufficient (population 85,627), but not that major,” he stated. “It has sufficient stuff for me and it really is only two 1/two hours from house so my household can see me play golf.”
Morningside is 156 miles from Fairmont to Sioux City.
Lutterman grew up about the game. He 1st played baseball as a youth, but switched to golf in higher college. He discovered the game from his father, Chad, who played golf in higher college and continues to play as an adult.
“I grew up about the game, so I really feel pretty comfy on the track,” Lutterman stated. “My older brother (Brycen) played in higher college and is now a college student, and my younger sister (Belinda) plays on the higher college group.
Brock is the middle youngster of parents Chad and Chrissy Lutterman.
Brock is interested in majoring in company management, plus a minor in sports management.
“I want to be involved in some aspect of golf,” Brock stated. “I am not positive which aspect, but I unquestionably want to keep involved in golf as a profession.”
Brock moves into his dorm in mid-August and his 1st day of classes is Wednesday, August 23rd.
Brock also played football and hockey for the duration of his higher college sports profession.
