CRANSTON — Westerly High sophomore Joe Juzmic made eagle on No. 10 and finished tied for 16th at the state golf tournament at Cranston Country Club Wednesday
Kuzmic, the only Westerly golfer to qualify for the second round, finished with a two-day total of 166. He shot 86 on Wednesday after opening with an 80 on the opening day. Par is 71.
“He chipped it in from about 150 yards,” Westerly coach Gary Korytkowski said. “It must have hit and rolled in. It’s a hidden hole and you are hitting onto the top of a hill. When we got up there the ball was in the cup.”
The 10th hole is a par 4 at 385 yards.
Korytkowski, who has been coaching the team for 14 seasons, said it was the team’s first eagle of the season.
“They don’t happen all the time. You are more likely to see them on a par 5,” Korytkowski said.
Kuzmic birdied the hole on the first day of the tournament.
Korytkowski said Kuzmic is considered tied for 14th in the boys’ championship after two girls finished ahead of him. The girls hit from shorter tees.
