Medalist for the match was a three way tie between Dylan, Tanner and Joe, all Friday Harbor Players...

 Some notable events: Dylan, Tanner and Joe continue to play well. When we have three players with about the same ability, we start to see a little internal competition on the team. They want to beat each other to capture that number one spot on the team. As we move into the last couple weeks before the tournament season, our focus is on the short game. These young golfers love to stand on the driving range and pound the drive to see how far they can hit it. For the next three weeks, we are going to focus on the real game of golf, putting and chipping.

 We had a number of personal best during this match. The top three players, Joe, Dylan and Tanner, each made a birdie during the match. If they make a birdie in a match the Coach buys them lunch. If these guys get much better, I might have to up the ante to two birdies in nine holes. First year player Joe Kaden scored a 56, beating his old personal best by 8 shots. 

Anna Romeo broke 60 for the first time this year with a 59 and Jocelyn Roberts had a personal best of 64. Our third lady Wolverine, Hallie Hargrove stumbled a little, but came in with a 68. 

The team that will represent the school during the Tournaments will be made up of six players. The top three spots have been earned. The bottom three positions are wide open. I have 15 guys and anyone of them could break out of the pack and earn a spot. It probably boils down to who spends the most time on the putting green over the next few weeks. 

Our next match is Thursday of this week. It will be a home match against Mount Vernon Christian.
