Jock Talk


A big weekend of golf is on tap at the Four Winds Golf Course as it’s time once again for the Three person Father’s Day Scramble. Golfers will be teeing off at 12 noon on Saturday and 9 a.m. on Sunday, so open golfers be sure and call the Pro Shop for open golf times.

Golfers participating in the Father’s Day Tournament will also enjoy an evening meal at the Wind Break Restaurant on Saturday evening, and the Kimball Cheer Leaders and Dance Team will be serving lunch each day as well at a minimal cost. Cost to enter the tournament is $95 per player with an optional skin game cost of $30 per team. There will be attractive hole-in-one prizes on all of the par 3 holes and also 9 flag prizes each day.


Another reminder also to sign up your four person team for the Team Mates Tournament set for June 24. Just $60 per player which gets you 18 holes of golf on the beautiful Four Winds Golf Course plus lunch at 12:30 followed by a shotgun start at 1:30. Each golfer will also receive a golf towel and a sleeve of Pro V1 golf balls. Flag prizes on every hole. Enjoy the Four Winds Golf Course and help a very worthy cause.


The Four Winds hosted the Panhandle Junior Golf Tournament this past week with 48 golfers participating. In the field of 15 boys in grades 10-12, Tristen Zitek and Dillion Wise tied for top honors with a round of 73 forcing a playoff that Zitek won in two holes of play. Other scores by our immediate area golfers saw Kole Bush shoot a very good round of 78, Zane Anthony 81, Andrew McCloud 86, Izaac Reuter 93, Jacob Walker 118, and Cole Henton with a 121.

Kimball 8th grader, Payton Wise, won the 10-12 grade division of the 15 field of young ladies as the 13 year old Payton moved up a class and shot the winning round of 94. In the grade 6-7 boys, Tayton Zitek was the winner with his score of 44 over nine holes of play. This gave the Zitiek family of Pine Bluffs a pair of firsts on the day. Trevor Williams shot 111. In the same division for the girls, Tori Williams shot 111. In the grade 4-5 boys division Kyler Lusche was the winner shooting 32 in 6 holes of play with Kaymon Lusche second with 41 and Branson Keifer was fifth with 50.


On the subject of Junior Golf, Four Winds Pro Chad Wise sends notice that there will be no Junior golf at the Four Winds this coming Monday as he is taking some kids to Colorado for an event.


Kimball’s Jordan Greenwood is still taking his game to high levels. He most recently played in the Nebraska Boy’s Match Play Tournament at the Wild Horse Golf Course in Gothenburg, where you had to shoot a qualifying round to advance into the match play bracketing. Jordan shot a solid round of 76 which did advance him into match play where he met up with Cade McCallum of Grand Island, who had shot the low round of qualifying of 68. Jordan lost out in his round of match play to McCallum six and four.

More honors came Jordan’s way this past week when he was selected as an All State Golfer by the Nebraska Coaches Association. State meet finishes dictated the selection of the All State Team. Congrats one more time to Jordan who closed out his Kimball High golf career this past spring as Kimball High’s first ever four- time state golf medalist! Now he heads off to Beatrice and play at the college level for Southeast Community College. This weekend he will be in action with his father, Kenny, and brother, Jeff, in the Father’s Day Tournament at the Four Winds.
