It was a cool day in the middle of spring. The trees were blowing, the ground was soft and wet and it was a great day to be playing golf at Mahoney Golf Course. This was our last tournament of the season as a team. I started out putting and chipping on the putting green. I remember I could tell I was going to have a great game because of how close I was putting the ball to the hole.

At the age of fifteen, the end of my freshman year in high school, I started golf. Being in a sport I had to keep up a high grade point average I worked very hard to maintain a 4.0 GPA on our 5.0 scales. Therefore, I continued to work hard to stay up in the ranks and also stay eligible, I was able to receive an invite to join the National Honors Society. I was excited that all my hard work was paying off not only for just being eligible to play golf, but to also be allowed to join a very elite and well-known Society. Golf motivated me and helped me have a positive look at my schoolwork, which also helped me receive my Golf Scholarship, to the Colorado
I walked into the first day of tryouts thinking I could not do it, but by the second day I walked in having total confidence in myself because I knew I was good and I had these tryouts in the bag. It was important because golf is my everything and even though I bring myself down about it, I love golf and I would have regretted it so much if I could not to do what I love. Making it felt like one of the biggest accomplishments, I have ever made and it really boosted my self esteem. From this experience I learned that even when you have doubts in yourself that should not affect how much effort you put into whatever it is that you are
Even though Lee had a “baseball-like swing”, but that didn’t stop him from getting a golf equipment named after him, and winning all these awards. Lee was also in the Marines for, four years and he loved it. He would play at golf matches when he was there, but his love for golf was so strong he wanted to go on and pursue his love for it. At the 1975 Western Open he got stuck by lighting but was still practicing golf in the hospital! I think it is amazing that even though he has been through so much he has fought through it because he didn’t want to give up golf.
I got 6th place in the tournament and was not happy but I gained experience and never gave up. My father and I drove back to Dallas and were greeted by the rest of my family who were all over the country and some in different countries. My Spring Break was fun because I got to spend five days with my dad and we did what we both love to do. I was upset that I did not win but you can’t always win and you have to learn how to lose and be a good loser. Spring Break 2018 was one for the record
My parents and friends knew the struggles I was going through with soccer and they all said the same thing, “why don’t you try cross country?” My answer was the same each time, “I would never even consider doing cross country, that's not going to happen. Sophomore year started and again I put myself through the pressures of making a soccer team. That year, the program cut 21 girls and I was put on a team mostly filled with freshman. I was devastated by this because I had worked relentlessly for four months during soccer pre-season
I used to think that I was going to participate in an after school activity for fun, but then my cross country team won the state championship meet, now I know I can do anything I put my mind to. Nothing was extraordinary about my life. I was just a normal ninth grader on the junior varsity cross country team. My times were not that great, so I had no intention of running varsity at all. We had a Saturday meet at Walker, but only the top seven varsity girls were going to compete.
Phil Mickelson and the lucky 13th hole Phil Mickelson is a true daredevil of golf. In the 2010 Masters he was holding a one-shot lead and with the impediment of the two trees that stood in front of him and a mind blowing distance of 207 yards, he just took the swing like it was nothing. The ball took a perfect trajectory and landed just 4 feet away from the hole. After the tournament he declared very amused and relaxed that the gap between the trees wasn 't big but it was enough to fit the ball through it, making it look like an easy shot; it was a miracle that the ball landed so close to the 13th hole and the trajectory was very precise even if there were obstacles along the way. 4.
I was sitting in a chair after the golf tournament to see if my name would be called for a medal. The guy yelled out “Connor Mikesch for 10th place”. There were 60 people at the tournament and I got 10th place. I was really excited because I have never gotten a medal before in a tournament. Learning Golf was struggling and hard at first but then it got better over the years by going out and playing a lot.

Of course, my team decided we were not going to take the game too serious since we won before and karma caught up with us really fast. Somehow, two quarters in and we were losing terribly but I had to let my team with a horrible fall to my head. In the beginning, I was unaware of injury to my head so I kept on playing till I felt dizzy and knew something was wrong. Even after my terrible fall, I wanted
