Merrill’s Russell Dettmering wins State Golf title

Merrill’s Russell Dettmering is on top of the Wisconsin prep golf world tonight.

The sweet swinging junior won the WIAA Division 1 state title with an overall score of 137 through 36 holes.

He shot a 71 (-1) on day one, and followed it up with a 66 (-6) today to finish with the third lowest score in D! history.

Dettmering is Merrill’s first champion since Dave Preboske shot a 145 to win in 1972.
