The men’s golf team had a successful weekend this weekend at the Lou Jarvis Invitational at Jay Peak golf course.
After two weekends in a row finishing second, the team was finally able to pull out its first team victory.
As well as finishing first as a team, Zach Temple took an individual first place victory. After shooting plus sevenn on the first four holes of competition, Temple hit his stride finishing the day with 7 birdies and a score of 76 to finish the round.
I asked Zach about what how he was feeling going into this weekend and how himself and the team prepared.
“The team felt very confident going into this weekend,” he told me, “Coach had us doing a lot of work around the green this week, chipping and putting which led to a lot of our birdies.”
When asked about how he felt about the round Zach said he and the team had a lot of confidence going into this weekend after practice all week.
Coach kept the team focused on chipping and putting, which Temple attributed to his and the teams success.
The team’s next tournament is this Tuesday competing in the Westfield State Invitational.

I never thought this day would come as quick as it did. The final time being out on a football field. It’s been one hell of a ride but, I’m not sure if I’m ready to let go. My whole life revolved around football since the second grade and it holds a special place in […]
