Brock Kehres

MANSFIELD — Shelby’s Brock Kehres admits his golf game was “on another level” when participating in a league Tuesday evening at Westbrook Country Club.

After carding a 31 on the back nine at Westbrook, Kehres noted that was his best score on the second half of the course, and he opted to play on.

The Shelby High School graduate and former state qualifier joined seven others from the league for an ‘eightsome’ to play the front side where Kehres turned in another 31 for a course-record tying 62.

During the round of golf, Kehres said he “hit 17 of 18 greens and made some putts” to equal the course mark first set in 2003 by current club professional Greg Smith and then by Chad Scott in 2010.

Kehres’ previous best was a 65 he shot at the Shelby Country Club and said he “was honored” for being a part of a course record where there have only been two other similar scores in the history of the country club which was constructed in 1922 by world-renowned architect Donald Ross.

Having just graduated from the University of Findlay with a double major in marketing and sports business with minor in business management, Kehres is now working on a masters in business administration at Findlay where he is a member of the Oilers’ golf team and was granted another year of athletic eligibility because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
