Nick Messinger | Golf
Messinger entered his senior year this week at Marquette Catholic High School, where he is a key member of the boys’ golf squad.
He wrapped up his summer on the links in fine fashion, helping earn him AdVantage News Athlete of the Week honors.
On July 30-31, Messinger won the 16-18 boys’ division of the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour event at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course in Alton. He carded a two-day score of 146, cruising to the 16-18 division championship by eight strokes.
Messinger shot a 2-over 74 on the first day, which included five birdies. He led by two strokes following the first day of competition. On Day 2, he shot an even-par 72 and collected three more birdies.
He finished the 36-hole tournament with 8 birdies and 20 pars.
Messinger will look to help the Explorers build on their seventh-place finish at the Class 2A state tournament last year in his final prep campaign.
