The boys varsity golf team was defeated by Richmond last night at Westwood Golf Club 168-170. Brady Wheeler shot a 41, Spencer Stewart shot a 41, Trevor Turner shot a 42 and Nolan Beam shot a 46. Varsity Record is 7-1. Other scores were: Blake Hammond 42 and Brennan Sadler 52.
We really did not get beat my Richmond because we beat ourselves. We had at least 8 penalty shots, several punch outs and some 2 and 3 putts. Richmond’s #1 player shot a 35 so that really put us down some strokes because we did not have anyone close to him. I think the kids know they need to clean up their games and stop getting so many penalty strokes by keeping the ball in play. There were some serious looks on their faces that told me as a coach they were not happy and they were going to work to cure their situations on the golf course. I believe they will bounce back and start playing New Castle Trojan Golf.
