SIOUX FALLS — Mitchell golfer Masy Mock stands in second place in the standings of the inaugural South Dakota Golf Association Sanford Golf Series, which is taking place this summer around the state.

Mock, who is an incoming junior for Mitchell High School, has logged 150 points, only behind Reese Jansa, of Sioux Falls, who has won twice this season and has 200 points. The event includes five regular season one-day events, followed by the series championship at Sutton Bay on July 30. The top high school players in the 2019, 2020, and 2021 classes had preference to be selected to the series.

Mock was second in the tournament at Red Rock Golf Course in Rapid City on June 24, shooting 91. Mock finished third with a round of 81 at Moccasin Creek Country Club on June 17, and tied for sixth on July 1 at the Country Club of Sioux Falls with a round of 83.

On the boys side, Carter Libis, of Springfield, has the low round among region players this season, shooting 78 at Red Rock on June 24, good for a tie for second place. He was also eighth, shooting 80 in the season opener at Moccasin Creek in Aberdeen on June 17. He ranks tied for seventh in the season standings with 90 points. Kevin Kolb, of Spearfish, has the season points lead with 170, 10 points in front of Aberdeen’s Lucas Schaefbauer, who won July 1 in Sioux Falls with a 6-under round of 66.

Platte’s Brody Boltjes shot a round of 80, tying for 12th in Sioux Falls on July 1. Libis and Max Dailey, of Mitchell, each shot rounds of 81, tying for 17th for the event.


The schedule includes an event Monday at Dakota Dunes Country Club near North Sioux City, and the regular-season finale July 15 at Hillsview Golf Course in Pierre. The top finishers will receive an invitation to the Sanford Golf Championship, a two-day event in Sioux Falls in August.
