Add golf to the list of things Shepherd people excel at. In the month of August, Alan Schulte and Andrew Frandsen each won their respective club championships. Andrew is a former collegiate golfer from IU and Alan was a certified PGA Teaching Professional before they joined the Shepherd team.

At Old Oakland Golf Club, Alan Schulte won the two-day qualifier on August 16th and 17th and entered the Club Championship as the #2 seed behind the 2013 club champion. Focusing on solid, consistent golf, Alan won two matches in a row on Saturday, August 23rd, advancing to meet the defending champion in the final match on Sunday morning. The match was hard-fought, but Alan sunk a clutch 12-foot putt for par that closed the door on his opponent late in the match.

The story from Crooked Stick Golf Club was Andrew Frandsen’s dominant performance over a field that included more than 50 competitors. The three-day, 54-hole, stroke play format made for a full weekend of golf. At the end of the second day, Andrew held the lead by 7 strokes and knew that all he needed to do was manage his lead on the final day. A solid nine out on Sunday morning gave him the cushion he needed, and made for a fairly stress-free back nine as he tapped in on 18 to win by a dominant 8 strokes. He credits his experience in tournament play and being comfortable playing with a lead as two primary factors leading to his championship win.
