When the snow finally melted, the golf course cleared off and that meant many golfers showed up to hit the links. Unlike the basketball kids, who can always find a court to play ball on, the golfers have to suffer through a long Star Valley winter, waiting for the opportunity to finally tee a ball up on grass.

The one winter activity they could maybe do is take a golf cart drifting! Even though they have to suffer through about 9 months of snow, they are no less excited for the spring golf season to come around. This spring the golfers played tournaments in Rexburg, ID, Star Valley, Lander, and Pinedale, and the boys won all of the, except Rexburg where they took 2nd place.

MS talked to a couple of SVHS’s finest golfers to see how they’re feeling about their favorite sport.

  1. Do you like spring golf or the normal season more? I like the normal season better because I usually golf better, and it is more competitive.
  2. What’s your best memory of Spring Golf? My favorite memory would be when I dunked a shot from fifty yards out for an eagle.
  3. Are you good at driving a golf cart? I am pro at at driving golf carts, but I can’t get too crazy or Fullmer gets after me.
  4. How often do you practice? I play nine holes every day after school and during the summer I play anywhere between 4-6 hours a day.
  5. How have you been doing? I’ve been playing alright, but I could definitely be playing better.
  6. Where did you go last? Last tournament was in Pinedale where I tied with Kaden Spaulding for 1st.

  2. What’s your best memory from spring golf? Mine would be playing super stick man golf 3 on the bus rides.
  3. Do you like it better than the normal season? I like Spring golf better because it is like practice for fall golf.
  4. Would you suggest others to participate? I would definitely suggest others to play because it is super fun and really laid back.

Junior Tyler Hodges

  1. Do you like Spring Golf or the normal season more? I like the normal season better because it’s more competitive and usually warmer.
