DW COMBINE-Carson Potter shot a 60 at the Veterans Memorial Golf Course on March 27. DW Coach Mike McGhan said that Potter's execution of his shots was the best he had seen this year, and his short game is his strength.
Teammates Sarah Daves shot a 74, and William Daves had 78 on the 9-hole course.
At Milton-Freewater on March 29, Sarah Daves shot a 62 on the 9-hole course.
"Sarah's focus is improving," said McGhan. "She keeps the ball in the fairway, and her scores have improved every match."
McGhan said William Daves is slowing down his game and focusing on each shot. His scores on each hole reflected this as he shot a 65.
Abbi Paolino is a first-year golfer. "In fact, she only had a quick instructional practice prior to her first match," said McGhan. "She was nervous, but she is athletic and very coachable. She strikes the ball well, and I think we will see her improve quickly and gain confidence. Paolino shot a 65 at her first match."
"I am very pleased with the progress of this year's team. Improvement is not always reflected in their scores; that will come," commented McGhan.
