Golf has short week
Published: Thursday, April 24th, 2014
Due to the typical spring weather, the girls golf team had a short week of competition.
On Tuesday, April 15, the team traveled to Belle Fourche to play 18 holes in the Belle Fourch Invitational.
“We had great weather. It was sunny all day long, but a bit windy,” said coach Royed Hollick. “It was a long day for the girls, but they did OK.”
In the invitational, Marlee Schneider shot a 118 while Cassidy Adam shot 122. Hollick said both girls managed to get one par during the course of the day.
“Cassidy could have had two, but she missed a four foot put on the last hole,” he said. “She had 11 on one and 12 on the other, so that brought her score up.”
Hollick said the team did get to practice outside on the golf course last Wednesday, before the snow covered the ground.
“We were able to play one hole before the snow came in and temperatures dropped,” he said. “It was nice weather when we started out there then the temperatures dropped. We about froze to death.”
Hollick said in practices, the girls are working on putting and using the wedges.
“I think they’re both beginning to understand why I stress the short game, especially around the green using the wedges,” he said. “They’re both sticking with it and are focused on improving their scores.”
The Custer Invitational that was to be held Thursday, April 17, was postponed due to bad weather. The invitational will now be held Monday, April 28. The girls will also travel to Spearfish on Thursday, April 24, for a pre-region invitational.
