Lukas Scheufler of Wellington continues hugely successful summer golf season

Luke Scheufler

Sumner Newscow report — It has been a significant season for young Wellington golfers this summer. As Deitrek Gill won the World Teen Championship in Pinehurst, Lukas Scheufler was playing havoc as a darkhorse in the Kansas Amateur Match Play at Colbert Hills Golf Course.

Scheufler, son of Dr. Steve and Kitchel Scheufler, finished in the quarterfinals in the 64-player field. He would lose to Jared Helin, a Kansas State graduate and assistant coach for the university’s women’s golf squad, 1-up in the quarterfinal. Scheufler entered Saturday with plenty of momentum. He already had two big titles to his name this year, winning both the Kansas Junior Tour and the Kansas Junior Match Play Championship.

Helin was the oldest player in the tournament while Scheufler was 17-years-old.

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Deitrek Gill of Wellington has made national headlines by winning the U.S. Kids Golf Foundation World Teen Championship for 2020 for 15-18 boys Saturday in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

Playing on the prestigious Pinehurst No. 2 golf course, Gill would win the three-day event over the nation’s best young golfers to win the cup. Gill shot a 71, 72, and 72 for a 215 score to become the only golfer to finish below par in this year’s event.

He defeated Solomon Petrie of Akron, Ohio, who shot a 217 for second place. See the full results here.

Gill, son of Chad and Carissa Gill, was one under par at the end of the three-day event.

“It’s unbelievable,” Carissa Gill said from Pinehurst. “Coming in, Deitrek’s goal was just to be in the top half of the main event so he could qualify to play the famous Pinehurst No.2 course. We were pleasantly surprised at how well he has played.”

Gill is actually in three events at the World Championship and is still playing golf at Pinehurst at this writing. He participated with his dad in the parent/child championship, which they won on Tuesday. Today, he is playing in the Van Cup which is a Ryder Cup event with the top eight golfers in the tournament. Usually, this is the U.S. vs. International event. But this year’s event is a little different in that International players are unable to compete due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
