The Season begins with one shot!

"If I hit it to the right, it's a slice, if I hit it to the left, it's a hook, if I hit it straight, it's a miracle."

first shot green view
 
The shot required a careful finesse over the corner of the tent frame with a sligh fade to the flagstick perched on the highest point of the practice green. Dan "The Senior Official" for the days event was ready with his Home Depot measuring tape. After a few shots, a helmut was offered for protection, but Dan being old school said he could duck better than the golfers could hit the ball.

Saint's Suit Up for Spring Snow, Wind, and Rain

 
"There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing."
 
The Aquinas Saints Women's Golf Team has already started and finished their spring season. The Saints had seven tournament rounds over the course of three weeks in April. Although there was a stretch of good weather, the tournament rounds only brought wind, rain, and snow for the ladies. The ladies headed out to the course with as many layers as they could swing in and plenty of handwarmers.

Early spring golf challenges the players to mentally and physically battle the elements. The Saints were able to battle the high winds and shoot their season low at Arbor Trace in Marion, IN, home of the Indiana Wesleyan Wildcats. The ladies came in with a team total of 338 with the top three players firing 74, 83, 83.
