~From Coach Linda Patrick
With just a few days before the new WIC conference tournament on Saturday, August 29, the Lady Cougars are still struggling to find ways to quickly improve their scores and become more consistent in their game. The two newest players are gradually improving and are beginning to understand that there is more to golf than just hitting the ball. Learning what club to use when, different stances for a certain club, risk taking, strategy, rules, etc., can all become overwhelming to a beginning player.
Rebuilding a golf team takes time and effort. All players are realizing that their individual school is critical to the team and all have to individually focus what is their most critical skill that needs to be improved.
The Lady Cougars recently played in the Western Boone Invitational but did not post a score due to having only three players. On Monday, August 24, the Cougars hosted a three way meet with Cloverdale and Owen Valley. Owen Valley took first with a score of 207, Cloverdale arrived without their number one player and carded a 229 and the Cougars struggled throughout the meet with putting and posted a 251. They will play again on Thursday, August 27 against Danville at Danville.
