The junior shot the lowest score of the tournament, 143 — including the lowest round with a 4-under 67 in the second round at the Class 3A state golf championships at the Duncan Golf and Tennis Club.


Schaefer said his second round was better due to his short game.

Monday marked the fourth time this year that Schaefer played Duncan's course. He had never played the course before this year.

He said he played “not this well” the three other times, shooting in “probably the mid 70s.”
