Rain could not stop Redhawks golf from finding success on the green finishing fourth in the in the District 10-5A Preview. “The rain was a factor for the first quarter of the round,” head coach Shannon Glidwell said.

The boys’ golf team finished fourth in the District 10-5A Preview Thursday at The Bridges Golf Course despite having to deal with some rain and wind in the process.

“We played well,” head coach Shannon Glidwell said. “The rain was a factor for the first quarter of the round. For the rest of the round it was wet, but it wasn’t raining. It did have an influence on some of our play, and I think the guys struggled a little bit with that. Overall, we had a few too many strokes here and there, [but] I think it went well for a lot of them because for many it was the first time playing the course and we were able to figure out some strategies.”

Freshman Ian Lin found the course challenging, but also sees easy ways for himself to improve.

“The preview was pretty hard and I didn’t do as well as I planned to do, because the Bridges is the hardest course that I’ve played so far in any tournament,” Lin said. “I feel like I could have done better because my short game was good, so if I get on the green with fewer strokes, I could definitely play a lot better. There’s a lot of middle islands in the Bridges that you have to get your golf ball onto without making it roll off into the river, so that means you have to play your shots well to make sure your shots don’t go short or go long. They have to be perfect.
