Tiller caps Zionsville career at state meet

Zionsville senior Clark Tiller saved his best for last at the IHSAA State Tournament on Wednesday, June 18.

Tiller fired a 2-over 74, his best round at the state meet in his five rounds in high school, and finished with a two-day total of 7-over, 151. He placed 19th.

"I was happy with the round," Tiller said. "Looking back on yesterday, I really took what happened and learned from it. You can see that in the score."

Zionsville head coach Steve Simmons said he thought his senior had a good two days at the Legends of Indiana.

"Other than a bad break on No. 8 yesterday and one poor tee shot, he played really well both days," Simmons said. "The conditions were tough, I think if we could do it again we probably would have changed clubs on the 8th yesterday so he doesn't hit it out-of-bounds. But for the most part, he played really solid golf. Today, he played about as well as he could play."

In round one, on June 17, Tiller got off to a great start in his round.

Starting on the 10th hole, he birdied the 10th and 12th holes to be 2-under through 3.

He bogeyed the 12th and 17th, but had a birdie at the 15th to finish 1-under for his first nine.

"I was feeling really good," Tiller said. "Everything was clicking. I was hitting it well off the tee but the big thing was putting. Putting was huge. I only had 13 putts on the front and it seemed like everything I had a good look at was going in. I have always been a pretty good putter and it was all clicking today."

After a bogey on No. 1, Tiller got back to red numbers with a birdie on the second hole.
