Across the board, the scores were higher. The pin placements were tough, the greens were light and fast, but the course is the same for everybody.
The freshman took their scores down 10 shots this year, and Ethan Smith improved a lot, too. In the next three years we are going to have some incredible teams.
This will be a nice transition. It's good to have someone in the community coaching.
We've been coaching course management, and he really took it to heart on this course. When I was watching him make his club selections, I couldn't have changed anything. He chose accurate clubs instead of distance clubs.
All these guys think they can shoot a 72. If they were capable of hitting 90 percent of their shots, they would shoot that, but they are only capable of hitting around 70 percent of their shots, so this is where the frustration comes in.
If we can get fifth or sixth we'll be doing well. There's no way we'll beat Aspen, Summit or Vail Mountain School, but if we can stay ahead of Battle Mountain, that'll be great. For a bunch of kids who train for two-and-a-half months out of the year, they do great, and I'm real proud of them.
