Boys’ golf takes a new course of action

Swinging into the end of their season, boys’ golf heads to Irving Golf Club Wednesday and Thursday for the District 9-5A competition.

“We enter with high expectations as our goal is to win the District tournament and earn a spot in the Regional tournament,” head coach Shannon Glidewell said.

For several athletes, extended practice is what it is going to take.

“I’ve just been practicing for longer hours,” junior Scott McCord said. “I’ve been honing in on things that I see I need to work on, just stuff I’ve been struggling in and kind of trying to relax and not put as much stress because whenever you get in your own head, that’s when you don’t shoot as well.”

While walking away with the lowest combined score is the base goal for the team, many feel there is much more to it than just a low number.

“Just to have fun is my biggest goal,” McCord said. “Golf is supposed to be fun. It would be nice to shoot well, but also if you’re not having fun, what’s the point. You want to be having fun doing something you like.”

With a smaller than usual roster, still yet to be determined, many may feel the Redhawks will have a harder time. However, junior Braden Cobb has another idea.

“Being with a small group of guys will be very beneficial just because we have that connection with each other,” Cobb said. “Yes, we are a smaller team, but we have a closer bond because of it.”
