The PHU boys golf team is getting into the swing of things as they approach the end of their season. The team consists of 5 seniors and is lead by Coach Parisi.

In their first match, the boys defeated North East High School and Osceola High School by 30 shots, beating North East 158-188 and Osceola 158-189. Brent Hajian scored the lowest score of 36, giving PHU the win.

“Our strengths are that our swings are fundamentally sound and we have an experienced group of golfers,” said Coach Vincent Parisi. “[We] need to work on our mental approach to the game.”

On September 15th, the boys played a match against Shorecrest Christian High School and Calvary Christian High School and lost with a total score of 166 (Shorecrest scoring 163 and Calvary scoring 161).

“We are better than last year even though we lost a star player,” said senior golfer Patrick Carney, “We’re more consistent.”

The boys played a tournament on October 27 in Seminole Lake against 18 different schools. Sean Frommé shot a 73 which was the lowest point scored all night. In the end, PHU came in 6th place.

“Every match we’re getting better, physically, mentally, and emotionally,” said Coach Parisi.
