Steamboat Pilot & Today Athlete of the Week Kaelen Gunderson

Kaelen Gunderson

School: Steamboat Springs High School

Year: Senior

Age: 17

Height: 5 feet 11 inches

Sport: Golf

Why Gunderson: The senior shot a 1-under-par 71 last week at the Steamboat Sailors Invitational to take home the low medalist honors. He was the only player in a field of 86 golfers and 22 teams to have a round under par. His round included five birdies and four bogies.

Quotable: “It was one of those rounds when you were just missing putts. They were lipping out and not falling. It could have been lower the way I was playing.”
