Golfers reflect on season’s end

Boys golf just finished a better-than-par season.

Many of the players agree the season went extremely well. Team members said they consistently practiced since the start of the Spring season, which contributed to an amazing golf year. Only a few practices were missed because of bad weather, however the rest of the season was completed in sunshine. The team also said tournament play went fairly well overall. The team said they were generally happy with how the season ended.

Junior Tyler Cross talked about his pre-season goals and what he was hoping to accomplish by the end of the year.

“I just wanted to shoot better than last season,” said Cross.

This season, the team planned on improving last season’s overall scores. Coach Gayne Nakano particularly looked forward to growing as a team in 2018.

“We want to improve on our games,” he said. “Our number one goal is to improve.”

The whole team and coach were hopeful about the future of the 2018-19 season and what it holds in store. While players are eager to better themselves, they all report different reasons for getting involved with the Bear River Boys Golf program.

Junior Hunter Smith, a golfer of three years, talked about what originally got him into Golf freshman year.

“My family kept bringing up how much golf tournaments pay professionals, and I decided to give it a try,” said Smith.

Cross explained that his family is what got him into golfing when he was younger, and he was particularly inspired by his dad.

“My dad is what got me into golfing originally,” Cross commented.

It seems as if family was a driving factor for many of the boys in Golf. They said, after they were introduced to the sport, their interest grew.

The team said they are ready to take next season and they are better than they ever have been. This year, the team reported being pleased with what they achieved, and can’t wait to continue growing as golfers.

Senior James Jackson talked about what he wanted to do throughout the season.

“To get back to where I previously was and just to get back into it,” said Jackson.

Senior David Aldrich commented about how he feels the season went and how, at the start of the season, he wanted to push past the slump he was in.

“Top three, that’s my goal,” he said. “…I’m in a slump right now, it wasn’t my best year. (But it) went pretty good.”
