The VASJ Viking golf season begins in just a few days. The team is optimistic about
their chances in 2020. Their schedule is loaded and begins with three 18-hole
tournaments taking place August 5-7th.
The linksmen return their entire starting squad from last year’s team including their #1
and #2 men in BK Kwasniak(JR) and Paul Wise(SR). That is as solid a #1 and #2 as
you will find locally, they can both go low,” said first year Viking coach Brian Dunmire.
Looking to build upon a strong late 2019 season and an impressive off season will be
the #3-man Patrick Dunmire(JR). “He has put in the work, now it is time to deliver
consistently in matches,” said Coach Dunmire.
The 4th-6th spots will likely be secured by Zac Tizzano(JR), Samantha Turk(SO), and
Liam Brown(SR). All three have the athletic ability to make the leap and provide
significant contributions in 2020. Tizzano and Turk were consistent contributors in 2019.
“I’m very excited to see the progression of Zac, Sammy, and Liam, Zac’s had a busy
and impressive baseball off-season, so we need to get him transitioned quickly to golf.
Sam just works and works. Always puts the time in and will do whatever it is we need
her to do. She’s playing from the men’s tees, the distance makes it tough but she finds
a way to move it around and post solid scores. And don’t sleep on Liam Brown, he has
transformed his body over the past year and I’ve seen him play a few rounds this
summer, he has dramatically improved and I expect him to continue to get better,” said
The Vikings begin regular season play Wednesday August 5, 2020 at the Kenston Invite, 8:00am tee time.
