Heritge Golf

Golf has morphed into a large part of my life over the past years. It started out as a fun hobby but as I got to high school, I knew that it was something that I was going to continue through college and maybe even past that. A large part of my golf career has to do with Heritage Golf. As a freshman, being able to play with talented seniors helped me to become a better. Heritage golf also helped me handle my nerves and anger better. The team always competes to play in matches and it was very competitive freshman year because of the number of good players. There were seven seniors who were good so every time I played I knew it was going to matter in the long run. Luckily, freshman year I made the districts team and from there we advanced to states. The team placed second and even though it wasn’t my best week, I was glad to be there. 

The next year, without all the seniors, the team took a small step back because we weren’t as talented or experienced. Unfortunately, the team lost at districts and only two of us advanced to regionals individually. Me and another kid. Neither of us played well and didn’t move on to states. Although, after a year, the team came back and knew we were going to do better. After placing second at districts and regionals, we had the opportunity to win states for the first time in the golf team’s history. We ended up not doing well, but, my team member won individually and I placed 5th, getting All-State honors. Now, it’s my senior year and districts are coming up soon. We are hoping to get to states for the 3rd time in 4 years and finally grasp the win.

  1. This was very interesting to read. I remember having the same feeling as a freshman. Playing with all the seniors was a very important part of my early football career and it made me into the player I am today. Even though my high school football career has not been as successful as your golf career, it is nice to read a different perspective. Figuring out that your attitude about your sport is the same as mine is relieving to know.

  2. I can completely relate to you knowing your golf career was going to venture beyond high school. I feel exactly the same about baseball. I also like how you described the feeling and specifics of being on the journey with all those seniors. Lastly, I wish you good luck and hope you guys win states this year.

    1. I remember us talking about baseball and golf in math last year. I’m glad that we feel the same way about our sport!

  3. I see some very similar things in common in between our posts. I just wrote a post about baseball and how it has affected my life and I see some of the same points in both.
