This week’s KROX Athlete of the Week is Crookston Pirate Golfer, Isaac
Westlake, a senior is having another great season and is ranked #9 in Class
AA!!!!! Isaac shot his best round of the year on Monday when he was medalist
and shot a 71 (one under par) at the Bemidji Town and Country Course in Bemidji,
which is the site of the Section 8AA tournament. He shot a 74 and finished third
place at the Quarry Course at Giants Ridge near Biwabik on Friday and shot a 74
and 77 at the two day Jordan Invite earlier this year. He has an average score
of 75 and his all state ranking is 74.6.
He hits 59% of the fairways, and his greens in regulation is at 60% and is averaging 32 putts per round and his ups and downs are 50%. “Isaac has been our number one all the way through the year and every tournament he is in he is in contention to be the medalist,” said Pirate Coach Steve Kofoed. “He has turned in great scores the past two rounds and hopefully we will continue to see him post scores close to par the rest of the year.”
Isaac had a great junior season where he led his Pirate golf team to a sixth place finish at state and finished 19th individually after he shot a two day total of 151 and he was named to the all-state team while being named the Pirate Boys Golf MVP.
Isaac is a two sport athlete and went out for football this fall and had a great season. He was a defensive end and was named the teams Rookie of the year and was second on the team with 93 defensive points. “I loved football and wish I would have been out all four years,” said Westlake. Isaac was a defensive mid for the Pirate Boys Soccer team where he was a two year varsity player for the Pirates and won the most improved award his junior year, before switching to football his senior season.
