Zhao Runner-up at Mission Inn

{}

Cam Mission Inn web Nate Mission Inn web Sam 2 Mission Inn webNathan Zhao (2015) kept his consistent play in tact this past weekend at the Golf Center of Excellence traveled to sunny Florida to compete in the FCWT Mission Hills event just outside of Orlando, FL in Howey-in-the-Hills.  After an opening round of 74 (+2) Zhao found himself in a tie for 2nd place, 4 shots behind the leader.  During his first round, Nathan was up and down during his first nine holes with a 39 on the par 35.  Zhao then hit the accelerator with 3 birdies on the back side and a 35 (-2) on the par 37 giving a total of 74.  The final round had Zhao paired with the leader who attends a golf academy at Mission Hills which is his home course and facility.  The plan on day 2 was for Zhao to play aggressive from the start to try and apply pressure with the conditions turning very windy.  Nathan did just that coming out with a birdie on the first hole.  Then his competitor birdied the 2nd hole to withstand the charge Zhao was applying.  Nathan finished the front nine with 3 bogeys and a double, but then regained his composure to finish the back nine strong with a 36 (+1) and take sole position of 2nd place.  Coach Higdon is very proud of Nathan and the rest of the team for their showing in Florida.  Nathan showed great composure and his overall talent level by competing head to head with all of the kids whose home facility is Mission Inn.  Those kids are out there practicing every day and know the ins and outs of the course.  Our players showed their talent level and work ethic by competing with these kids stroke for stroke.  Nathan finishing as runner-up along with Camden Nierman (2012) an Sam Eisenhuth (2014) finished in a tie for 7th which shows SSM and its players are contenders in any tournament we play.  I am really proud of all of our players and their performance.  We do have some practice and work to accomplish in the next 2 weeks before we head back down to Florida on February 21st.”

Sam Eisenhuth (2014) and Camden Nierman (2012) finished in a tie for 7th in the 55 player field.  Both recorded rounds of 77 in the opening round without a birdie and had themselves in the hunt.  Both shot the same round on the second day with 78′s and ended up only being 4 shots out of 2nd place.  This was Nierman’s 3rd top 10 finish of this season and this marks the 2nd top 10 for Eisenhuth.  With the 2nd place finish, Zhao moves into 5th place overall in the season points standings.  Jake Curwin who shot rounds of 80,83 and finished in 24th sits in 8th place overall for the season while Eisenhuth is in 12th and Nierman makes a big jump into 17th.

Shane Hoben (2016) shot rounds of 82,85 for 7th place in the boys 13-15 age group.  Hoben had 2 birdies during his opening round but was not able to muster up any during the final round.  According to Coach Higdon this was Shane’s best performance of the year.  “Score and finish wise, this may not have been Shane’s best performance of the season on paper, but I can tell you as far as striking the ball and his overall swing, this is by far his best performance of the season.  I am proud of Shane as he set out to accomplish one goal of swinging with good tempo the entire tournament and he was able to do that.  There is no doubt in my mind things are going to continue to get better this spring with Shane.”

Sydney Brickey and Sophia Hill competed for SSM in the girls division and finished in 15th and 18th place respectively.  They both had opening rounds of 84 and were paired together during the final round in which Brickey shot 86 and Hill shot 89.  Sometimes it can be more difficult when you are paired with a teammate or good friend during a competitive round as it adds many elements to the mix that is not common during tournament play.  Hill who is going through a drastic transition with her swing did a great job of staying positive and accomplishing the goals she was looking for with her swing.  Great things are on the horizon for this young lady.

The golfers have a short break before heading back down to Florida for a FCWT event on February 23rd and 24th at Plantation Inn which is in Crystal River, Florida just north of Tampa.

The wind was a factor all weekend and the Saber golfers proved they were tough enough physically and mentally to face the challenge.  The golfers take the upcoming week off to focus on their studies during finals and will take to the links again the 1st of December when they head to California.

Sophia Hill played strong today with an opening round 80 and is currently in 7th place in the 31 player girls field.  She is only 3 shots back of third place and looking to make up some ground on Sunday.  Sidney Brickey opened with an 85 and currently sits in 12th place while Nicole Pelling shot an opening round 102.

SSM play starts on Sunday with Shane Hoben teeing off at 8:16am.  The SSM golfers will need to stay patient and strong as the winds are supposed to get stronger and make the course even more challenging.

SSM Golfers Top Overall Standings

{}

Even though the SSM Golf Center of Excellence is taking the weekend off, its golfers are still making headlines.  SSM golfers sit in the top two spots in both the Boys 16-19 age group and the Girls 13-18 age group in the national standings for the FCWT Golf Tour.  Jake Curwin holds the top spot in the 16-19 age group with his victory this past weekend at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club, his 2nd place finish at Purdue University, and his 13th place finish at Notre Dame.  He is leading SSM teammate Nathan Zhao who holds the second spot by 812.5 points.  Zhao has put together a solid fall with a pair of 3rd place finishes at Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame combined with a 13th place at Cog Hill.  Camden Nierman sits in 5th place in the overall standings with a 4th place finish at Cog Hill and his 6th place finish at Purdue.  Sam Eisenhuth is in 8th place overall with his best finish coming at Notre Dame in 11th place.

Sydney Brickey has the top honors in the Girls 13-18 age group and leads fellow SSM Teammate Sophia Hill by 200 points.  Brickey’s latest tournament at Purdue was her first victory at a national tournament and combined with her 3rd place finish at Notre Dame is able to give her the edge.  Sophia Hill is in 2nd place overall with a pair of 3rd place finishes at Cog Hill and Purdue University combined with her 6th place finish at Notre Dame.  Nicole Pelling is in 8th place overall with a 4th place finish at Cog Hill and a 5th place finish at Purdue University.

Shane Hoben is in 14th place overall in the Boys 13-15 age group.  His finishes of 5th place at Cog Hill, 9th at Purdue, and 11th at Notre Dame are keeping him in contention in that age group.  Shane is coming into his own and continually improving and is looking to be in contention for a victory very soon in the horizon.  Golfers are taking a little break from the FCWT Tour and will be competing next on that tour at Mission Hills, CA on December 1st and 2nd.  SSM Golfers will be competing in their first Plantations Tour Event of the season this next weekend at the University of Kentucky on November 10th and 11th.
