WCHS?grad shoots 5-under over 27 holes, follows in twin brother’s footsteps; Flattery, Yates and Ross round out top 4

Webster City native Avery Fuhs won the Briggs Woods Amateur by six shots on Sunday.

WEBSTER CITY — The Fuhs family continued its reign of dominance at the Briggs Woods Amateur golf tournament on Sunday.

One year after Alec Fuhs claimed the title, it was twin brother Avery Fuhs’ turn to hoist the top prize, as he bested the field by six shots at Briggs Woods Golf Course.

Avery Fuhs, a 2016 Webster City High School graduate, blistered the par-72 layout for a 3-under-par 69 to take a three-shot lead into the championship 9-hole round. He carded a 2-under 34 over that stretch to increase his advantage by three more shots.

Robert Flattery (72-37-109) of Fort Dodge was second. Logan Yates (72-37-109) and Matt Ross (73-37-110), two more WCHS graduates, were third and fourth.

Ross is a former Briggs Woods Amateur champion. He was the runner-up in 2017.

Avery Fuhs finished up his sophomore season at DMACC earlier this month where he helped lead the Bears to the NJCAA Division II national tournament. Flattery was also a member of the Bears’ squad.

The Fuhs twins will head to Grand View University in Des Moines in the fall where they will join the Vikings’ men’s golf program.
