Congratulations to Paul Weyland Golf Students Nate Barkan and Jake Slocum for their great play in the 11 to 12 year age division of the ID Junior Golf Association District Championship. After 18 holes of regulation play they were tied for first place with scores of 76.  Nate won the tie breaker in a chip off to take first place.

Both these young boys are very fine golfers, but more important they have great attitudes and they play the game for fun and to challenge themselves… not for trophies.  They are also fine young boys who have great character, sportsmanship, and respect for the game.  These things are much more important than scores they shoot.  Winning at this age is not important, what is important is that these young golfers continue to develop a passion for the game, respect the game, have fun, and learn something every day.  Golf is a marathon not a sprint!!!  Great job boys and I wish you all the best at the Idaho State Championship in August!!!
