Golf has always been a sport of calculated strokes, deep concentration and physical aptitude.
Brophy’s golf team’s performance thus far in the season is no exception.
In their first match, a close competition against Notre Dame, Brophy was awarded second place overall.
This would be the first sign of the matches to come.
On Sept. 14 Brophy golf battled for and won first place at a match hosted by Mountain Ridge.
According to Jordan Smith ’11, one of the most challenging tournaments this year was the Aguila Invitational. “We were down by three strokes going into the back nine of the final day,” Smith said. “We won by one.”
The golf team added a few new younger members to the roster this year. The new members are Timmy Briones ’14, Andrew MacMillan ’14, Chris Petefish ’14, Sam Triplett ’14 and Austin Groen ’13.
These additions keep the success of the team going into next year as Paul Pullin ’ 11, David Lowe ’11, Colin Prenger ’11, Jordan Smith ’11 and Mason Smith ’11 graduate.
As for the rest of the year, team members want to maintain and increase their results.
“We are going to continue to improve,” Jordan Smith said. “Although we are strong right now, we can still get better.”
