FHC varsity boys golf continues its hot streak with two strong finishes


The boys varsity golf team has been incredibly busy this week, with OK White Jamborees two days in a row,  April 18 and 19. With this being said, the boys hard work is proving to pay off, as they finished second and first in both matches.

On Tuesday, April 18, the boys traveled to Byron Center to compete in their second OK White Jamboree. The conditions were frigid, but this did not matter to the Rangers, as they finished second overall behind a very strong Byron Center team. Junior captain Philip Murdock led the team shooting a 38, good for fourth place overall. His younger brother, freshman Matthew Murdock, came in at sixth with a score of 39. There were questions about whether or not the weather would affect the boys, but they were quickly squashed as the match began.

“The cold weather didn’t really affect our play as we have played in this weather before and knew what to expect,” Philip stated after the match.

With no time to reflect or recover on their performance, the Rangers were back on the links for another Jamboree on Wednesday at Lowell. Despite predictions of rain, the weather held off and it turned out to be a great day of golfing for FHC. Junior Brett Comiskey had an incredible day, shooting a 37 and finishing second overall. This should come as no surprise, as he has been working incredibly hard lately.

“I’ve been working on my short game and putting mostly which really helped me perform well,” says Brett.

On top of a great performance from Brett, Philip Murdock also finished 3rd. With these two strong performances, as well as the rest of the team playing well too, the boys took home the victory over the five other schools.

Coach Paul TenEyck is impressed with his squad and happy with their good week so far but doesn’t want them to settle. “We have continued to work on our areas of need and we are improving. We need to continue to improve in course management and short game,” says TenEyck.

The boys will be back in action this weekend as they travel to Crystal Mountain to compete on Friday and Saturday, April 21-22.
