WORTH | When your last name is Mulligan, maybe you do want a second chance on the golf course.

Homewood-Flossmoor freshman golfer Jack Mulligan carded an 11-over-par 83 Saturday at Water's Edge Golf Club to help the Vikings place seventh in the Mount Carmel Invitational.

Mulligan, who has scored as low as 74 this summer in IJGA play, was disappointed with his result, seeing room for improvement in his game.

“I'd prefer better,” said Mulligan, who managed two birdies, including via a pitching wedge approach to two feet on one hole. “My short game helped me today.”

H-F junior Tyler Reid also had an 83.  He sank too many 10-footers to recount to save par or bogey en route to his total, hence the satisfaction in his score.

“I think it was a pretty good score,” Reid said. “There were a few mistakes, but it’s a good score.”

A pair of birdies on the par 5s on the front side were set up by brilliant chip shots. More of that from the Vikings as a whole and H-F could surprise this season.

“Our goal is this year, and maybe next year, is to make state (Class 3A) at least, and maybe try to place in state,” Reid said.

Illiana Christian, again showing itself to be a Class 2A contender, tied Marist for fourth at 39-over 327 thanks to a quartet of scores of 83 and better, including a leading 8-over 80 by Jonathan Zandstra and a 9-over 81 by Dan Lagestee.

“You’ve got to keep it straight here, with the tall trees left and right,” Lagestee said. “Keep it simple.”

For the most part, he did so, with a 25-foot birdie putt on the par-4 sixth the reward.

Ryan Hernandez led host Mount Carmel with a 9-over 81. The Caravan finished tied for ninth at 53-over 341, 27 strokes behind winner Oak Park-River Forest, which was paced by the 3-over-par 75 of medalist  Tim Walsh.
