Girls golf finds comfort in home meet

Back in familiar territory, the Indians golf team hosted the Manhattan invitational. However even with a familiar course and short trip, the Indians did not compete to their best on Monday.

“I think we all could have played better,” senior Delaney Wisdom said. “Everyone came together with ideas of how to improve, but the wind was the biggest factor.”

The wind affected the way the girls had to play as well, causing them to adjust their shots and it forcing them to overcompensate. The wind mainly impacts the longer shots causing drives and fairway shots to curve off target, but not really doing much damage for green play.

The girls have been playing well lately but with this small setback they will continue to work hard and practice to improve their playing.

“Personally,” junior Camy McAtee said, “my short game needs to improve. I had 75 shots from inside of 50 yards so it all came down to finishing on the greens and up close. I definitely will work on my putting and chipping.”

This is the lady Indians final meet before entering regionals which will take place on Oct. 9.
