PLYMOUTH - Last night the Norwich Purple Tornado Golf team took on Windsor in a home match and won handily, 201-222.
The low score of the match was registered by Norwich junior Ryan Johnson who shot a 36 on the day; finishing with two birdies and two bogeys. Johnson is one of the most consistent members on the Norwich team and almost always finishes in the top three for the Purple Tornado. Right behind Johnson was Alex Gage with a 37. Just like Johnson, Gage always seems to be one of the top players for the Norwich team. Rounding out the group for Norwich were Nate Scheer with a 40, Brennan Maynard with a 43, and Connor Nial with a 45. The Norwich golfers have been a consistent bunch this season as the young team posts many of the same numbers match after match.
