Boys’ and girls’ golf look to fine-tune

Both the boys’ and the girls’ golf team are set to play on Tuesday at the Baytree National Golf Course. The boys prepare to face Melbourne High School, and the girls match-up against Edgewood Jr./Sr. High School.The boys’ golf team is desperate to add to its one victory of the season against five losses.

 “I believe the main issue with the team’s performance lately is our overall lack of confidence,” sophomore Richard Darnell said. “Every match we enter we seem to do really well at one point and then poorly at another point, causing us to lose our focus and confidence.”
Darnell added that the team needs to overcome miscues.
“We need to learn to overlook petty mistakes and continue playing without those mistakes in mind. That is the key to victory,” he said. “As for myself, I have been playing extremely well lately, and I need to maintain that performance and focus in order to do well .”
 The girls’ team looks to climb above its 3-3 record.

“The team’s performance has been average lately. We definitely could be doing better,” junior Taylor Irwin said. “Our short game needs to improve because that seems to have been our primary issue throughout the past couple of matches. In order to achieve victory against Edgewood, our putting, chipping and other aspects of our short game need to show improvement. As for my individual game, I need to work on the accuracy of my drives.”
