Golf COE participants are preparing to play in the FCWT tournament October 22 & 23 at the prestigious Dubsdread course at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont, IL.  The course has been host to 4 USGA Championships and a constant stop on the PGA Tour since 1991.  Justin Rose won the BMW Championship that was completed a month ago with a score of 13 under par.  First round tee times are scheduled to start at 7:30am on Saturday so stay tuned for updates from Coach Higdon.  You can receive updates and comments from Coach Higdon by following him on Twitter @higgolf or following the Shattuck-St. Mary’s Golf Center of Excellence on Facebook.  You can also track the player’s scores on the FCWT website at the http://fcwt.bluegolf.com/bluegolf/fcwt11/schedule/index.htm.  This will prove to be a true test of golf for our players as the course and field of competitors guarantee to be a tough challenge.

Devils put the ‘C’ on Parise’s sweater

Devils put the ‘C’ on Parise’s sweater

Wednesday, 10.05.2011 / 12:57 PM / News

By Dave Lozo - NHL.com Staff Writer

Zach Parise could be playing his final season with the New Jersey Devils, and if it is, he’ll do so wearing a “C” on his sweater.

The Devils made the 27-year-old Parise the ninth captain in team history Wednesday. Forwards Ilya Kovalchuk and Patrik Elias were named alternates.

The Devils had been without a permanent captain since trading Jamie Langenbrunner to the Dallas Stars last season.

The move comes after Parise signed a one-year contract this offseason. Parise will become an unrestricted free agent after this season, but has said both his agent and the team will work on a long-term extension during the season.

As per the collective-bargaining agreement, Parise can’t sign a new deal until after Jan. 1.

Parise talked about potentially becoming the team’s captain with NHL.com before training camp, saying: “Of course I would like to. I think right now, with our team, we’re in a transition period where for six years, I was always the youngest guy and all of a sudden I’m one of the oldest. We’re at a point where there are a lot of veteran guys who aren’t with us anymore.

“As a player, you try to take a little bit more of a leadership role every year. Whether you have the ‘C’ or not, it’s not as if players are going to look at me different. That’s just now how it is. Players just respect other players whether they got a ‘C’ on their jersey or not.”

The Devils drafted Parise in the first round of the 2003 Entry Draft. In six seasons with New Jersey, the native of Minneapolis has scored at least 30 goals four times with a career-high of 45 in 2008-09. The left wing is coming off a season where he played just 13 games due to a knee injury suffered at the end of October.

Parise is one of five U.S.-born captains in the NHL, joining the Rangers’ Ryan Callahan, the Kings’ Dustin Brown, the Canadiens’ Brian Gionta and the Blues’ David Backes.

Golf COE Wraps up first tournament weekend

The first tournament of the Golf Center of Excellence came to conclusion on Sunday, October 2, 2011.  Day two of the FCWT competition being held at The Warren Golf Course on Notre Dame’s campus was better from a weather and golf standpoint.  Jake Curwin was 1 under par through 13 holes until he suffered a double bogey on the course’s 16th hole.  He was able to keep his composure and finish his round with 2 pars on tough holes facing directly in the wind to finish with a 2 over par 73 which was the second lowest score of the day for the 52 player field.  It was good enough for Jake to move up 6 positions and end up in 6th place and only 2 shots behind the leaders.  Nathan Zhao competing in the 13 – 15 boys division improved on his first round score by 10 shots to shoot a 3 over par round of 74 which was also the second lowest score of the day for the age group.  Nathan played a solid round which include 3 birdies on the day.  He played well enough to move up to a sixth place finish and 6 shots behind the leader.  Phillip Baumberger shot a final round 84 which dropped him to a 19th place finish in the 52 player national field but Phillip did have a high point of three birdies during the round.  Sydney Brickey was able to better her score by one shot and shoot a 97.  This was her first national tournament and great learning experience to see how things are more competitive on a national level.  The players will be practicing hard this week in preparation for a Minnesota PGA junior event that is going to be held Saturday, October 8th at The Legacy Golf Course which is located on Shattuck-St. Mary’s campus.  The Public is more than welcome to come out and watch and support the SSM golfers.

Golf COE Tournament Play Underway

 

Four members of the Golf COE started tournament play today for the 2011-2012 season, at the FCWT tournament hosted by The Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame.  Phillip Baumberger got off to a fast start of his 8:39am tee time by carding a birdie on his opening hole which was the par 5 10th.  He was able to add another birdie on his 17th hole to help finish his round at 80 which is good enough to tie for 10th place of the the 50 player national field and 6 shots back of the leader.  The cold temperatures and wind made the challenging course more difficult as the low round for the boys 16 – 18 age group was a 74.  Jake Curwin was able to grind through a tough day of putting and finished with his only birdie of the day on his 18th hole to finish in a tie for 12th place with an 81.  Nathan Zhao is competing in the 13 – 15 age group and concluded his round in 84 which puts him in a tie for 11th and only 4 shots out of 3rd place.  Sydney Brickey who is competing in the girls division shot an opening round 98 which puts her in a tie for 7th place.  The Sunday forecast looks a little better as the temperatures are supposed to be a bit warmer, but the wind looks to be a factor yet again for the final round of the 36 hole event.

Darian Powell Earns Spot on Regional Team

Congratulations to GU18 forward, Darian Powell who has been selected to the Regional ODP team. Darian will represent Region 2 over Thanksgiving break in Florida at the inter-regional tournament. In early July, Powell attended the Regional camp with her Minnesota state team. She was invited to stay back with the other top players at the camp for pool play. Darian was contacted a few weeks later with the great news that she had been selected for the team. She said, “I was very nervous after the pool play was over with because I had never made the Regional team before. And I was very excited to get the acceptance letter.” Over Thanksgiving she will have the opportunity to play in front of National team coaches where the same process will take place, with the potential to be invited to National Camp. Of her Shattuck teammates, Powell says, ” All of my Shattuck teammates are very happy and supportive of me. They have all been congratulating me!” The Shattuck St. Mary’s community and soccer department would like to congratulate Darian and wish here good luck at the tournament…Good Luck Darian!
