Long Ball Kowolitz is back. Medalist for the match was Jesse Kowolitz with a 44. I had an opportunity to play with three of the members in the opening day scramble at the San Juan Golf Club. After 18 holes of competitive golf I took Jesse aside and helped him understand why he was having so much trouble with his driving game. In less than one week he has made the adjustments and is back on track for some good golf for the rest of the season.
On a side note, our scramble team of Coach, Kowolitz, Hargrove and Thomas finished 3 under. We lost the low gross bragging rights to Jess Hargrove’s father’s team for the first time in three years.
The 44 for Jesse is a personal best for the season.
We have a new squad member named Joe Stewart. Joe was recovering from an injury from another sport and has finally been cleared to play golf. Joe has a lot of potential and is knocking on the door to become one of the regular traveling team.
Going off the island to play golf in Snohomish is a big deal. The ladies squad is not yet ready to put themselves in that level of competition. Yesterday ended up being an all guy trip.
