Congratulations to all the Paul Weyland Golf students who played in the recent Idaho State Junior Golf Championship. Not everyone played to the level they wanted, but after watching my students play over two full days I was proud to see how they all displayed great attitudes and professionalism even when they had poor stretches of play and faced adversity such as playing in 50 MPH winds. Learning every day is the most important part of this experience. The beauty of golf is that there is always another day, another shot, and the key is to stay in the process of learning and get a little better every day.
Some notable finishes were:
Carson Barry 1st place in the 14-15 year old division with rounds of 71, 70
Jake Slocum 3rd place in the 11-12 year old division with rounds of 39, 39
Natalie Mullins 4th place finish win the girls 16-18 division with rounds of 85, 79
Drew Lunt 10th place in the boys 16-18 with rounds of 78, 69
I also want to bring special attention to Paul Weyland Golf student, Carson Barry, who is one of the four players to represent Idaho in Portland, OR at the Hogan Cup. The Hogan Cup is a two day team event consisting of four players from eight different Western States and British Columbia. All the best to Carson and the entire Idaho team.
