Experience in golf is crucial. Nearly all professional golfers started playing the sport at a young age.

No matter how old you are, what tournament you’re playing in, or who you’re playing against, experience leads to results.

After losing numerous players to graduation, the boys’ golf team was left without much experience.

With seven high school golfers – three of which are seniors – and six middle school students, the team lacks the much-needed experience. However, seniors Jared Brown and Ethan Huff have positive outlooks on the team’s inexperience.

“Being on a team with little experience is a challenge but is also a learning experience and a chance to get better by learning from mistakes,” said Huff.

“Being on a young team allows for a lot of growing room,” says Brown, who’s confident that the young team can develop into an “on-par team.”

With the inexperience, the team looks to the three seniors, Brown, Huff, and Nick Hounshell, for leadership and direction.

“Being a leader on the golf team means you are looked up to,” said Huff. “When people look up to you they tend to do what you do. “

By starting at a young age, Brown and Huff have high hopes for the inexperienced team’s future.

“I fully expect that by the end of their high school golf career that the team will have formed an unbreakable bond and be stellar golfers,” said Brown.

When Smoke Signals went to press, the team was set to play in the region tournament on Sept. 27. 

Despite the challenges of a new coach and an inexperienced roster, the seniors have persevered and led their team. 

“Throughout the season, our new varsity team has stepped up to the challenge and have tried to fill the void,” Brown said.

“It’s not been the greatest senior season I could have asked for,” Huff stated. “But I admit there have been a lot of fun times, and I will miss it.
