SALINA — Dylan Teeter’s outstanding golfing summer continued on Tuesday.

Teeter, who is from Inman but practices at Turkey Creek in McPherson, shot a nine-hole score of 37 at Salina Municipal in the first round of the Kansas Golf Association Junior Sectional. He is tied for second place in the Under-11 division, as Lawrence’s Will Hedges shot a blistering 33.

The second round is scheduled for today.

Teeter recently was the winner of the U.S. Kids Player of the Year for the Kansas City region during the spring tour. He also recently won the Drive, Chip and Putt competition, contested at Newton. 

He has qualified for sub-regionals in Kansas City, with the hopes of competing in the national competition.

Those who play at Turkey Creek can often find him practicing on the putting clock and driving range as he appears to have a bright future in the game.
