Boys Junior Varsity Golf, Boys Varsity Golf · BUTLER SHOOTS A HOLE IN ONE IN WIN OVER CENTENNIAL


CORONA:  The boys golf team took on Centennial and at first the Spring break seemed to affect their game.  The team got off to a rough start and shot 15 over on the first hole alone.

But, that rustiness seemed to flake off as they went through the rest of the course and the team rebounded to shoot a 16 over on the entire day and beat Centennial by 32 points

Coach LeDuc said “we had a strategy to get off to a good start on hole 1 where we usually struggle, but we didn’t execute that strategy well.  Luckily we bounced back after that”

Evan Chavez concurred, saying, “Despite getting an 11 on the first hole, I think it helped me settle down and play well after that.”

He would play the final 8 holes 2 over par for a 44.

The highlight of the day came on hole 5 when senior Sam Butler fired his first hole in one of his career. Using a 5 iron on the long par 3 his 215 yard short hit a foot short of the pin and bounced straight in the hole.

“It was one of the most exciting moments of the season, and possibly the first hole in one in King History within a match” LeDuc said.

Butler used the hole in 1 to card the low score of the match and even par 36. Other notable scores were Sophmore Joel Gonsier’s 37 and Michael Higginbotham’s 39.

The Wolves are now 6-3 and 4-1 in league.
