STOCKTON — After a strong performance at the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Division V tournament at Merced Golf and Country Club on May 9, Bret Harte High School freshman Eli Weidmann qualified to compete in the Section Masters Tournament. CIF Sac-Joaquin.
In the biggest tournament of Weidmann’s young high school career, the freshman finished the day shooting an 87 Monday afternoon at Elkhorn Golf Club in Stockton. Unfortunately for Weidmann, his season came to an end, as he did not qualify to advance to the NorCal tournament.
“I didn’t perform as well as I would have liked and I’m a bit disappointed, but I learned a lot in the process,” Weidmann said.
Weidmann was not only Bret Harte’s best golfer all season, he was possibly one of the best in the Mother Lode League. And although he was unable to continue his season, Weidmann feels his first trip to the Masters was something to build on for years to come.
“The overall experience has been amazing,” Weidmann said. “Just having the opportunity to participate in this tournament is awesome. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity. I will continue to work hard and hopefully I will go a little further next year.
