Fellow Eagle Spencer Klimek also finished under 40, with a 39. Green rebounded from a 41 the night before, a prediction of Head Coach Andrew Thompson’s that held true.“It was nice to see Tyler recover from last night and shoot par at home,” Thompson said.Columbia City posted two other scores below 45, including Max Dryer’s 43 and a 44 from Trent Murphy.But none could predict a co-medalist performance from Homestead’s No. 4 linkster, Grant Jagger, who also scored par Friday night.To read the rest of this story, see the April 27-28 issue of The Post and Mail.
