We had a really nice end to the season. Our top six golfers showed improvement in a lot of areas. In terms of “golf experience” we were really young, as two of this year’s top players are freshmen and three are juniors. The wet spring really limited the number of courses and competition the team faced this season.
The post season was a great learning experience about what it takes to succeed and how focused one has to be for 18 holes in order to get to the top.
