Broncs Golfers Tee Off at State Tournament this Weekend

Written by on September 19, 2019

THE HIGH SCHOOL GOLF SEASON IS NEARING AN END. THE CODY BRONCS FIRST HIT THE LINKS FOR THE 2019 CAMPAIGN AUGUST 12TH AND ARE NOW PREPARING TO TAKE PART IN THE STATE TOURNAMENT JUST A MONTH AND A HALF LATER. FRESH OFF THEIR 4TH PLACE FINISH AT REGIONALS IT’S A QUICK TURNAROUND ONLY BEING ABLE TO PRACTICE MONDAY AND TUESDAY. HEAD COACH JAKE KRAFT TALKS ABOUT WHAT HE EXPECTS FROM THE GOLFERS DURING THE THURSDAY PRACTICE ROUND.

CONFERENCE WAS AT VALLEY VIEW LAST FALL. SO WE’VE PLAYED THAT COURSE, MOST OF OUR KIDS HAVE PLAYED THAT COURSE. JUST GETTIGN A FEEL FOR THE GREENS AND WHERE WE’LL FIND OURSELVES OFF THE TEE AND HOPEFULLY POSITION OURSELVES IN A GOOD SPOT. JUST GETTING SOME EXPERIENCE ON THE COURSE. WHO KNOWS WHAT THE WEATHER’S GOING TO LOOK LIKE OVER THE NEXT THREE DAYS. WE’RE JUST HOPING THAT WE’RE ABLE TO GET OUR STATE TOURNAMENT COMPLETE.”

COACH KRAFT GOES ON TO OUTLINE HOW THE COURSE WILL PLAY AND WHAT COULD BE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES THE GOLFERS WILL FACE.

THE COURSE IS RELATIVELY SHORT. THE HOLES ARE SIDE-BY-SIDE. IT’S NOT ON A LOT OF ACREAGE SO THERE’S GOING TO BE A LOT OF ACTION PROBABLY HAPPENING, CRISS-CROSSING FAIRWAYS POTENTIALLY. NOT HITTING THE WRONG BALL WOULD BE AN ISSUE, FOLLOWING OURSELVES OFF THE TEE, MAKING SURE THAT WE’RE ABLE TO GET UP AND DOWN FROM THEIR GREENS. THOSE PEOPLE THAT ARE GOING TO GRIND IN THOSE 36 HOLES ARE GOING TO BE THE ONES THAT ARE SUCCESSFUL.”

CONSISTENCY WILL BE KEY ESPECIALLY AT A TOURNAMENT WHERE WEATHER IS GOING TO PLAY A BIG FACTOR. COACH KRAFT TALKS ABOUT THE TEAMS GOALS.

YOU KNOW I THINK REALISTICALLY IF WE COULD GET INTO THE TOP SIX THAT WOULD BE A HECK OF A GOAL. THERE’S A FEW TEAMS BETWEEN WORLAND, STAR VALLEY AND LANDER THAT HAVE PROVEN THEMSELVES THIS FALL AND THE PREVIOUS FALL. REALISTICALLY IF WE COULD GET INTO THE TOP FIVE OR SIX THAT WOULD BE A HECK OF A GOAL. KIDS ARE GOING TO HAVE TO GRIND AND THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE TO PLAY THROUGH DIFFICULT WEATHER CONDITIONS AND A FIELD THAT’S PRETTY TESTED.”

THE CODY BRONCS GOLF TEAM HITS THE LINKS ONE FINAL TIME THIS YEAR OVER THE WEEKEND AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT IN STAR VALLEY. STAY TUNED TO THE BIG HORN RADIO NETWORK FOR RESULTS.
