DICKINSON â€” In both days of the Class A state boys golf tournament, Valley City High School senior Nick Jenson saved his best for last. The last nine, that is.
In both days of the 36-hole tournament, which ended Wednesday at Dickinsonâ€™s Heart River Municipal Golf Course, Jenson struggled in the courseâ€™s front nine, but was able to make up for it on the back.
â€śI like the back nine a lot better here, so I knew Iâ€™d make some birdies and I didâ€ť he said.
He finished with a final score of 155, which tied for sixth place and earned him All-State honors.
