This is very true and my kids are not on the level that most of this boards children are but they do enjoy the competition and look fwd to matches and practice. The schools they attend barely have a program at all, there is no internal competition for a place on the team. Show up and your on. Of course only the better players travel to matches but that's kind of a joke. My daughters team is her (1), who normally scores around 43-48 and another girl who shoots mid to high 50s and 4 first time golfers who cant finish nine. My son attends a different school and its pretty much the same there. His good days are low 40s but he can post up a smooth 53 with the best of them and he is the 1 seed. Only 9 hole matches too. (?) There is one school in Naples that has some damn fine golfers and I think those kids take some long a** bus rides for competition but that aint us. LOL. It just irks me that that there is no spring golf when everything is in place to support and promote it. I think it would help carry the stoke through summer and result in a stronger crop of junior golf come fall. /rant. Thank you for replying.
NOTE* He did get his match in yesterday, said he played like crap, wont tell me his score... such is life.
