Owen Rexing of Rosemount views his senior season like moving day. Instead of climbing the leaderboard, though, he wants to keep moving up in the state rankings.
The 29th-ranked boys’ golfer by the Minnesota Golf Association started that trek by winning the 28-team Bunker Hills Invitational with a 3-under-par 69.
“I played pretty good,” Rexing said. It was the best outing of the year for the St. Thomas recruit.
Rexing is long and straight off the tee, putting him in good position to hit greens in regulation.
“I am solid off the tee and hitting it well right now,” Rexing said. “I need to keep improving my chipping and putting.”
Rexing shared 31st place in the Class 3A tournament at Bunker Hills a year ago. He wound up with an 8-over-par 152 in his initial state tournament appearance.
“His ability to shake off mishits and creatively recover from anywhere on the course makes him one of the most consistent golfers in the state,” Rosemount coach Anthony Mahady said.
