for, Big 8
By Steve Taylor
Friday and Saturday Husker goifers tee off in the Drake
Relays Invitational, another preparatory event for the Big 8
meet in Lincoln May 17-18. From performances so far,
Oklahoma State University has been tabbed the favorite in
the conference meet, with Oklahoma University and UNL
also figuring in the title chase.
the Huskers have finished third three times and first
once this spring, but freshman golfer Jon Rumfield claims
they can do a lot better.
"We really haven't had enough time to develop yet," he
says. "We are just about ready to hit our peak."
Rumfield has not been entirely satisfied with his own
play this season. "I feel I should be able to score in the low
70s. I had hoped to shoot a par or under par round this
year," he said.
So far Rumfie'd's best outing was the Cornhusker
Invitational where he managed two 74s and tied for
medalist honors with teammate Gary Teei. He
accomplished those scores in near monsoon conditions with
wind and rain and temperatures under 40. Bad weather is
something Rumfield is not altogether accustomed to.
He spent most of his high school days in Hawaii, where
his Air Force father was stationed. Jt was there that he
nearly had his first hole in one.
"I left it just a little bit short," he remembers. "I went
up and blew it in, but of course it didn't count."
Does he miss Hawaii?
"Not really," he says. "The weather is nice, but the
people there are prejudiced against Caucasions."
Rumfield's main concern now is helping the Huskers in .
their bid for the top spot in the Big 8 tourney. He thinks
the team might benefit from their home course advantage.
Rumfield plans on making a career out of golf. If he
improves, ha would like to turn professional after
graduation. His secondary goal is to become a club
professional and teach potential Johnny Millers the finer
points of the game.
Only 19, Rumfield has a while to go before career
worries. Between now and graduation will lie a lot of
important tournaments. This year's Big 8 meet will be one
