MA Golf Team Improves Stroke by Stroke
by The Milton Measure on Friday, June 8th, 2012
The golf team finished the season with a 12-6-4 record highlighted by outstanding individual performances. Duncan Bowden (II) was undefeated through the first 12 matches of the season and eventually finished with a team-best 16-4-2 record. Captain Louis McWilliams (I), Jackson Walsh (I), Mike McGee (II), Scott Majkowski (III), and season #1 seed Sam Procter (III) made up the rest of the Mustang’s golf squad. These boys had high hopes of winning a season-long race to the ISL championship; unfortunately, with their record the odds were slim to none.
The Mustangs, however, still had a glimmer of hope left in their season. Being one of the top teams in the ISL, Milton qualified their top 5 golfers to attend the Kingman Championship tournament at Wianno Country Club in Osterville, MA. This year-end tournament determined the year’s team champion of the ISL.
Sam Procter was asked about his expectations for the tournament: “Obviously, our goal is to shoot a good score as a team and win the tournament. I believe we have some very talented golfers going to the event and could post a low number as a team. To win it, we will likely need to shoot 310 or better, which is about a 77 stroke average for the best 4 out of 5 scores on our team.” This goal is attainable for the Mustang’s golf team.
Throughout the season, their 1-5 matches have routinely earned the bulk of points for the team. One thing coach Christopher Kane said about this year’s squad is that, “We have about four guys that can post some pretty low numbers, but they haven’t fired on all cylinders in one match yet this year. I think that’s where some of our losses came from; if we can get all our guys to go out and play their best at Wianno, there is no doubt in my mind we can take this trophy home.”
With arguably the best talent in the ISL and some new firepower lined up for next year’s team, the Mustangs golf program seems to be jumping to the head of the pack.
