Golf displays high expectations
The golf team has made strides in the fall and expresses hope that they will continue with the successful trend into the spring.
“I believe we have a very physically talented group with lots of mental toughness,” said head coach Jonathan Dismuke. “We work hard on our chemistry and get along very well.”
UH played consistent and competitive golf as a team in all four tournaments with impressive team finishes and two individual championships.
“Once we were there, I feel that all the players were forced to elevate their games just to play in the tournaments,” said junior Kyle Pilgrim. “We had consistently high individual finishes and the team approached every match knowing and believing that we were the best team.”
The team finished the season with a host of top-five individual victories.
“I’m hoping for a lot to come in the future,” said junior Roman Robledo. “I’ve learned to not look back and stay as current as possible.”
The golfers said they have high expectations and feel as if they did pretty well but are still in search of the ultimate goal.
“Every time we played and didn’t win, we left feeling a little disappointed but mainly motivated to improve for the next one,” Pilgrim said.
As of Oct. 2, according to Golfstat.com, the team is ranked No.14 in the world. The Coogs had an impressive fall season, including victories from Pilgrim and Robledo.
The team said they are definitely ready for what the spring season will present.
