It was the first time that I was playing in a higher age division. I was also entering my Freshman year of highschool, and knew that I would play a handful of these guys again during the season. I was determined to play well to earn their respect. Over the next couple of days, I spent hours getting ready. I would wake up early to hit five baskets of serves, later that day I would two baskets of forehands, and two baskets of backhands.
I became apart of Marcus Golf my sophomore year after I switched over from soccer. With a smooth transition I was able to be successful very early on. I was nominated to be team captain my sophomore year when I was on JV, and when I got moved up to Varsity I continued to be a strong leader. With lots of hard work and dedication every day I was able to win an award for Most Fairways my junior year. I enjoy being a part of this program, and love being a leader on and off the
One thing that Tiger Woods has managed to do his whole career is being able to mentally keep a level head through all the ups and downs during a tournament. That’s why he has had such an incredible career. Things like pressure seems to excite him, and even when he struggles he has the mental ability to overcome that and find something to help him push on in the tournament. When I play in a tournament I try to do the same. I am trying my best to become very similar to Tiger
When I first started Carolina Courts I had no idea what I was getting into. First the season started horrible then our final game we reach the championships. I had no idea how unpredictable this season was going to be. If I could do it again I wouldn't have changed a thing. I was so excited as I saw the door of Carolina Courts this was going to be a great season.
There was one putt that I made that was nearly fifteen feet across a curving green. As time passed, more of my team members arrived along with the teams from other schools. Pretty soon, the first players were teeing off the number one tee. I watched my teammates tee off, hearing their drivers connect to the ball with a ping, and then see their ball streaking away toward the fairway or just left or right of it. Soon it was my turn
Riley Timmons Mr.Forbes September 16, 2015 4th Hour Personal Narrative Broken Baseball Player The general definition of a teammate is a person who works with their team towards a common goal. Now what kind of teammate would I be if I stopped helping my baseball squad achieve their goal, just because I was injured? I tried to picture what the game would be like in my head; me sitting in the stands while my team lost the tournament. The fill-in pitcher for my team threw the batter an easy ball, resulting in another home run.
My dad ambly walks over the the tee box where I had put my tee. He slowly placed his ball on top of the tee. He lazily moves the club back, He quickly thrusted forward with his knees to have the ball go about 150 yards. It rolled to where it was about 200 yards from the
This defeat would be one of the reasons that led the Creekside tennis team placing outside of the top three at the county tournament. My doubles partner and I had just had won the toughest match we had ever played in the previous round of the tournament. We defeated our opponents in a thrilling comeback after
As a freshman who just came to US for less than a week, I decided to join the school Junior Varsity Golf team, a sport that I have only seen on TV before. I don’t know what gives me the courage to join team. However, I’m very thankful that I made the decision. For the following four years, I have learnt so much and have had so much fun in the team that I would not image a fall season without playing golf. At first, I couldn’t even hit the ball or just dig a big hole in the ground.
As there were ten minutes before the game we kept on doing the drills until I heard my coach announcing the starting lineup. I heard my name being announced so I prepared myself to go to the field. I could already see the trophy as it was in a table. As I walked in the field I could smell the trimmed grass and could hear my teammates say “we got this.”
Picking up a golf club for the first time, I fell in love with a new game. I played every chance I got that summer. Begging my parents for clubs and lessons, my passion grew and most of the following summer was spent on the golf course, not the baseball field. I was headed to LaSalle High School that fall, and was warned that the golf
The theme I chose was “Fear can prevent people from pursuing their dreams”, (Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist). I can relate to this because I have experienced fear trying to reach this goal I had set. This goal was to be an incredible golfer. About two years ago I was pushed by my parents to join a golf tournament. At the time I was playing golf and I absolutely liked it
I’ve been golfing since I was a little kid. I’ve experienced many highs and lows, and have created many friendships and memories playing the game I love. Golf can teach you many lessons, if you pay attention. One of the lessons I’ve learned is that it takes perseverance and hard work if you want to excel at something. I started hitting golf balls at the age of 2 with my dad and older brother.
