Week Recap

The week was a busy one for the team. We started the week with a practice round on Monday at Thorncreek Golf Course. Julia and Coach Ricardo played a round together, and Julia was in a good state of mind. She played relaxed and had fun, even though she missed several graduation celebrations. Coach Vu joined us for the last 9 holes.

On Tuesday, Julia kicked off her State Championship at 10:30 am. Her spirits were high, and she showcased her skills in the first round, scoring an impressive 89. This landed her in the 38th position out of 84 players. The following day, starting at 8:30 am from the 1st tee, Julia displayed steady and consistent performance throughout her second round. She ended her high school career with an 87 for the day, resulting in a total tournament score of 176. Her remarkable performance secured her 36th place in the field, a testament to her dedication and talent.

Short Term, Mid Term and Long Term Golf Goals - Working To Achieve Our Goals Is A Lifestyle, Not  A Destination :)

Week 14

In order to achieve our goals, we take small steps towards them - they are usually met in small increments. 

When setting your goals, make sure they are reasonable and measurable. Reasonable goals set you up for success, and measurable goals let you know how close you are there, and most importantly when you achieve them.  Measure, review and redefine your goals regularly.

Week Recap

It was an eventful week for our golf team as we geared up for the regional tournament at Fox Hill Golf Course. Here's a recap of our team's achievements and individual performances:

On Monday, we started the week with a light practice session alongside the talented Regional team. This allowed us to fine-tune our skills and prepare for the upcoming challenge. Tuesday was the day we had been eagerly anticipating—the regional tournament. Our team put forth a commendable effort and secured a respectable 7th place overall, with a combined team score of 318. We are proud of each team member's contribution to this achievement. n terms of individual performances, Julia Love stood out by securing an impressive 9th place, recording a score of 89. Her consistent play and determination truly paid off. Danielle DeMartin demonstrated her skills and finished in 28th place, earning a score of 108. We also had Tatum Choi and Maya McGibbon, who gave it their all and secured 35th and 40th places, respectively. Tatum achieved a score of 121, while Maya scored 127. Their resilience and perseverance throughout the tournament were inspiring to witness.

Congratulations are in order not only for our team, but also for all the competitors who showcased their hard work and dedication during the regional tournament. It was a successful event that highlighted the talent and passion within our golf community. As we move forward, we will continue to build upon this experience, further honing our skills and striving for even greater success in the future. Keep up the fantastic work, team!

Playing Under Pressure: Chicken Nuggets

week 13 - Regional Week

This great game we love to play is hard on any day. Add some pressure, and then what? Don't deny it or try to get rid of it, instead accept it and learn to play with it. For most of us, pressure feels like nerves and anxiousness, but in reality it is a little extra adrenaline that makes you feel this way - this puts you in an elevated mental and physical state, so use it to your advantage!

Realize you are in the greatest park in the world and you are playing a game you love... if pressure sneaks in, accept it and embrace the challenge that comes with it: Chicken Nuggets (Thanks JL - best advice ever!)

Week Summary

To prepare for the regional tournament, we focused on strengthening the mind (take a look at last week's writeup). Our week included an 18-hole round of golf at Indian Peaks on Monday, followed by putting, chipping, and driving range drills on Tuesday and Wednesday. Unfortunately, Thursday's practice was canceled due to rain.

Save The Date: Beat The Coach Tournament/Closing Ceremony (June 2nd)

As our season comes to a close, we can now begin organizing our Beat The Coach golf outing, where parents and students will have the opportunity to compete against the coaches' team. This will be followed by our closing ceremony on June 2nd. The golf course and venue for the closing ceremony are still pending confirmation. Parents, kindly RSVP for the event.

Sharpening The Mind For Golf Away From The Golf Course: Strengthen Your Mind So It Becomes Firm And Stable

Week 12

Visualization. Visualization is one of the most powerful tools you can use to improve your golf game. When you visualize yourself hitting good shots, it helps to train your mind and body to perform those shots on the course. To visualize, find a quiet place where you won't be disturbed. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Then, picture yourself standing on a tee box, looking down at the golf hole. Visualize the shot you want to hit and how the ball will travel through the air. See yourself making good contact with the ball and watching it fly down the fairway. Continue visualizing yourself hitting good shots until you feel confident and relaxed.

Positive self-talk. The way you talk to yourself can have a big impact on your golf game. When you start to get negative thoughts, such as "I'm never going to make this shot," or "I'm such a bad golfer," challenge those thoughts. Replace them with positive thoughts, such as "I can do this," or "I'm going to give it my best shot." Positive self-talk can help you stay focused and motivated, even when things are tough.

Staying in the present moment. It's easy to get caught up in thinking about your past shots or worrying about your future shots. However, if you want to play your best golf, it's important to stay in the present moment. Focus on the shot you're about to hit and nothing else. When you're on the tee box, don't think about the putt you missed on the previous hole. And when you're putting, don't think about the drive you hooked into the woods on the previous hole. Focus on the task at hand and you'll be more likely to make a good shot.

Controlling your emotions. Golf can be a frustrating game, and it's easy to let your emotions get the best of you. However, if you want to play your best golf, it's important to learn how to control your emotions. When you start to feel angry, frustrated, or anxious, take a deep breath and remind yourself to stay calm. Remember, it's just a game. There's no need to get worked up over it.

Having fun. Golf is a great way to get exercise, enjoy the outdoors, and spend time with friends and family. So, make sure you're having fun! If you're not enjoying yourself, you're less likely to play your best golf. So, relax, take your time, and enjoy the game.

Last Weeks Recap

On Monday, we held our regular practice at Indian Peaks Golf Course in preparation for our last league match on Tuesday. Unfortunately, we did not have enough players to compete as a team, but our individual team members represented us well. Julia Love (T6/86) played a strong game, displaying the strength of her golf fundamentals. Danielle D (11th/95) tied her personal best, and Tatum Choi (18th/109) also played to a personal best.

On Wednesday, the team and coaches gathered at Centaurus High School to support Julia Love on her signing day. She has chosen to continue her golf career at Dort University. Due to inclement weather, we met at the Indian Peaks clubhouse on Thursday for a planning day and study hall.

This week, with our last league tournament complete, our regular golf season has come to an end. We are now focused on our Regional Tournament on May 23rd, followed by our State Tournament on May 30th and 31st. Practices will focus on our Varsity Team (Julia Love, Danielle D, Maya M, Tatum C, and Meagan K as our first alternate). JVs and Developmental players can participate, but attendance is optional.

Practicing Relaxed Concentration: Less Trying - More Attention. Less Effort - More Observation.

Week 11

Focused Attention -> Less Interference -> More Awareness -> Relaxed Concentration

Player: "I was hitting the ball so well on our practice round, now I can't get it back!" Coach: "Maybe it is because yesterday it did not matter as much as today - today you are craving it, you want to swing well so you can win? - Moral of the story: This very subtle craving causes your mind to become unbalanced, and you lose your concentration and feel - Enjoyment needs to be present in order to be able to play our best.

Practicing Relaxed Concentration: Let go of the results of your shots as you play and practice - keep a curious frame of mind and focus on one thing at a time. Go to the driving range and practice this, then take it to the course. Practice focusing your mind and not reacting or worrying when the outcome of your shot is not what you expected. Instead, and without judgment: observe and maintain attention.

Remember, relaxed concentration is something you practice - it does not come naturally for everyone.

Last week summary

Our golf week kicked off on Monday with a productive practice session that centered around individual practice at the driving range. While some members of our team chose to utilize this time for a study hall, others honed their skills on the range, preparing for the busy week ahead.

Tuesday was an eventful day as Mead hosted our 5th league match at Twin Peaks Golf Course. It was a solid performance by our Varsity team, securing a commendable 4th place finish with a total score of 441. Representing Centaurus HS, Julia achieved an impressive T7th position out of 95 participants, followed by Danielle in 11th place out of 101, Maya in 18th place out of 112, and Meagan in 25th place out of 133. Additionally, on Tuesday, Coach Vu and Ratzlaff led the JV team's practice session. Elyse, Tatum, and Coach Kevin were present for the session, which involved normal putting drills and a competitive 6-hole match. The team then transitioned to the range, where Elyse and Tatum had the opportunity to hit shots from their entire bag. I had the privilege of providing Elyse with personalized 1-on-1 instruction, specifically focusing on proper driver and wood techniques.

As the week progressed, our practice sessions took place at Indian Peaks on Wednesday and Thursday, further allowing us to refine our skills and prepare for upcoming challenges.

Allow Yourself Success: In order to win, you must be prepared to lose.

Week 10

"I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions , I have been entrusted to take the game-winning shot, and missed. And I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And this is precisely why I succeed" - Michael Jordan

Last Week's Recap

Last Tuesday, Coach Kevin R took our team to Fox Hill for our fourth league match. Despite a cold and soggy start, the sun eventually came out and we managed to finish in third place overall with a score of 430. Julia L (5th/93) was particularly impressive with her exceptional reads and decision-making skills. Congratulations to Danielle (T6th/94) and Maya (T16th/112) for achieving personal bests! Even Tatum (T23rd/131), who was feeling unwell and joined at the last minute, managed to finish strong.

On Wednesday, Coach Vu held practice with Elyse, Anna, and Paige. Although A&P were a little late, they informed the coach directly. The focus of the session was on putting, and range work. Coach Vu spent time with Elyse, going through her entire bag but giving particular attention to her hybrid, 9, and W clubs. The coach is pleased with Elyse's progress. Anna and Paige enjoyed hitting through their bags and Coach Vu's daughter, Isabelle, also joined the session. Everyone had a great range session, and practice ended around 6:20.

Golf Myths are out there, they are everywhere, but are they all true? 

Week 9

Which myths are you attached to? What is stopping you from letting go of them?

Golf myths are everywhere, but don't let them hold you back from improving your game. One of the most common myths is that you need a perfect swing to play well, but other factors like course management and mental toughness are equally important. Lastly, golf is not a slow and boring sport - it's strategic, mentally challenging, and offers social and physical benefits. Challenge these myths and discover the truth for yourself - golf is a wonderful sport accessible to all.

Week 8 Recap

Our team kicked off the week on a positive note, participating in the second tournament of the year hosted by Fox Hill GC on a beautiful 72-degree day. We secured a respectable third-place finish with a team score of 439. Individually:  Julia L (T2nd/88), Dannielle D (22nd/110), Tatum C (27th/117), and Maya M (36th/124) delivered impressive individual performances. We spent Tuesday and Wednesday refining our putting, chipping, and swing techniques at the driving range, but Wednesday's practice was cut short due to rain and snow. On Thursday, we traveled to Pelican Lakes GC for our third tournament of the year, hosted by Windsor HS. The cold and windy conditions made playing golf incredibly challenging. We were unable to score as a team because our Varsity team was short on players. Nevertheless, Julia L (T3rd/85), (T50th/120), and Meagan K (58th/127) showed their skills with solid individual performances. 

PS - Tuesday Vanessa Diaz and Sophie Lewandowski from the Warrior Scroll stopped by and interviewed the team on opportunities for golf scholarships in this sport, and took some pictures.

Week 8

Philanthropy (Definition)

From personal experience, I can attest that sharing knowledge and skills with others, whether it's through coaching, teaching, or simply helping someone in need, brings a great sense of fulfillment. As the CHS Golf Coach, I have found the experience to be especially rewarding. Not only has it allowed me to improve my own golf game, but it has also given me the opportunity to inspire and support my team members. I am grateful for this opportunity and thank you all for your continued support.

Week 7 Recap

We started our week by hosting the first tournament of the year. We had 58 competitors participate (40 League, 18 invites).  Thank you to everyone involved, and thank you to Patrick Love for bringing water and snacks. Our team played well and landed in fourth place with a team score of 433. Our varsity team Julia L (T-4th/87). Danny (105), Tatum (114), and Meagan (127).  Our JV team played their first tournament ever, and loved it!

We spent the day at the driving range on Tuesday and Wednesday. Coach Vu led practice on Wednesday and shared the following message: "We did a 1 shot contest for Putting & Chipping from 3 different positions each. I had the launch monitor and had girls each hit 5 drives and recorded. Maya won the putting contest after making a 12-foot downhill putt in the tiebreaker, while Julia won the chipping contest." Coach Vu emphasized the value of challenges in our development. On Thursday, we played the first of several designated rounds of golf provided by Indian Peaks.

Week 4 Recap

On Monday, we enjoyed the nice weather by playing 5 holes of golf. We formed teams and played a mini contest, which was both fun and provided a gentle introduction for our first-year players who had never used a scorecard before. On Tuesday, we practiced at the range, focusing on our iron play and putting. Wednesday was a cold and rainy day, and since school was in the middle of midterms, we spent the day at Top Golf for a Practice/Study day. Coach Vu ran practice and shared that we ended right at 6 PM, which was perfect timing as the weather was getting bad. Some of us chose to study, while others hit the ball. On Thursday, we followed our strength training program at the gym.

Next week's schedule

There will be no practices next week as BVSD is on Spring Break. However, for those players who are in town and want to play one round of golf before our first tournament on April 6th, we have a tee time reserved for Thursday, March 30th, starting at 1:30 PM. Please RSVP if you would like to participate.

Discipline 3

Play Within Your Means And Be Ready For Whatever The Game Brings, Because The Game Will Challenge You Every Time You Play.

Week 4

Trying to hit a perfect shot every time you swing the club is not a sustainable approach and can lead to unnecessary tension. Instead, focus on developing a consistent and effective swing that can help you achieve success over time. Knowing that you have the ability to recover from any situation and still make par can help free your mind from worry and tension. Be creative and use your imagination to your advantage, as it can be your best ally on the golf course.

If you struggle with the pressure of expecting nothing but perfect shots, consider watching Bob Newhart's 'STOP IT' video. It offers a humorous perspective on how to break free from negative thought patterns and enjoy the game more.

Week 3 Recap

Our golf team had a productive week filled with various activities. On Monday, we were delighted to have a warm day at Indian Peaks and played four holes of golf while also continuing to work on our short game. Additionally, we held a vote for the position of Team Captain, and Julia Love won - congratulations Julia!

On Tuesday, we spent the day at the driving range, where we honed our skills in putting, chipping, and full swing practice. Wednesday's practice was led by Coach Vu and assisted by Julia. Coach Vu shares: "Julia did a good job running practice. Today was 30 minutes of putting. Then we had an extended range session". Finally, on Thursday, we met at the gym for a strength training session, which helped us improve our fitness and endurance. Overall, it was an excellent week of varied and productive practice for our golf team.

Discipline 2

Be The Best At What You Do, Because Being Good is not Good Enough

Week 3

Being the best at what you do isn't just a goal, it's a way of life. Achieving excellence requires giving it your all, persisting through failures, maintaining a positive outlook, seeking advice, and being open to learning.

To be the best, you need to have a deep understanding of your craft. In the case of golf, that means mastering the rules of the game, developing skills to be a great teammate, coach, or captain, and knowing about sports psychology, fitness, and nutrition. It also means preparing meticulously for tournaments, practicing with purpose, setting achievable goals, and consistently working towards your long-term aspirations.

Being the best at what you do also involves staying resilient during tough times, treating those around you with kindness and respect, and communicating effectively. If you consistently demonstrate these traits, you'll be among the top 10% in your field - a result that comes with being the best at what you do.

Week 2 Recap

On Monday, we had a great time playing five holes of golf at Indian Peaks. The team enjoyed the beautiful weather and showed off their skills on the course.

On Tuesday, we gathered at Centaurs High School's Fish Bowls to learn more about the rules of golf. We watched the USGA's videos and had a presentation from Brad Wiseley, CGA's Rules Official. It was a great opportunity for the team to brush up on their knowledge of the game.

Later that day, we held a parents' meeting, and we appreciate everyone who attended. It was an excellent chance for parents to get to know the coaches and learn about our team's upcoming events - Thank you parents!

On Wednesday, we visited Top Golf and had a blast hitting golf balls and practicing our swings.

Thursday was all about strength training with Coach Ratzlaff at the school. The team worked hard and gave it their all.

Overall, it was a great week for our golf team. We can't wait to see what next week brings!

PS - We are looking forward to our Thespians to join the team next week. Break a leg!

An excellent week wrapped up with warmer weather in the future...hopefully! As the familiarity with the game progresses, please don't forget to begin identifying individual goals you have for the season. Continue to focus on what is in front of you, rather than what is not. Being focused on the process rather than the result will work wonders for your progress. One step at a time, one swing, one round. Great work ladies!

Week 3 Schedule

Discipline 1

You Must Have A Sound Understanding Of What The Game Of Golf Really Is. If You Don't Get This Right, The Rest Will Never Work.

Week 2

What is the game of golf (really) about?

Golf is not just about hitting the ball hard or far. It's about hitting consistently, mostly straight, and knowing that you're never out of the hole. The real opponent is the golf course, and it requires strategy, focus, and resilience to succeed.

Walter Hagen, a legendary golfer, once said, "Now what you have to understand is that three bad shots and one good shot still make par. You see, golf is the game of recovery." This quote highlights the importance of resilience and the ability to bounce back from setbacks. It's about reacting appropriately in every situation, managing the course, and playing smart golf.

Ultimately, having a plan will be your best friend. Whether it's for the driving range, before taking a swing, an upcoming tournament, a meeting with your teacher, or even before you make a phone call, making a plan takes just 30 seconds. This will help you stay focused, make smart decisions, and achieve your goals.

I encourage you to continue practicing and playing with passion, commitment, and discipline. Remember that every day is an opportunity to improve your game and develop your skills. We believe in you, and we're here to support you every step of the way.

Last Weeks Recap

Our tryout week was such a blast! We kicked things off with six enthusiastic players showing up on the first day and after a quick team meeting, we hit the course and played five holes. Despite the chilly weather, we kept up the momentum and practiced at Top Golf on Tuesday and Wednesday, making the most of the available heaters. As for March, we've decided to move our Wednesday and Thursday practices to TopGolf on days when the weather isn't great, and Tuesdays will be all about strength conditioning. Although three of our returning players have conflicts for the first two weeks of the season (School Play), we're optimistic about having an eight-player team this year. With a lot of hard work and perseverance, we're hopeful that we can send two or three players to this year's state championship!

Great first week! We have some great athletes this year and a strong group to begin. Looking forward to the entire team being able to get together after the first couple of weeks and to start competing. Remember to dress warm through the initial weeks of the season as the weather could be cold!

Coaches Note on Attendance

Attendance is mandatory for all practices, meetings, fundraisers, and meets in which the athlete is scheduled to compete.

If an athlete knows that they will not be able to attend a practice, they must inform the Head Coach at least twenty-four hours in advance. In case of unexpected illness, the athlete's parent or guardian should inform the coach in the morning of the illness.

Excused absences are those due to medical appointments or official school functions that require an adult's presence. An athlete with an excused absence must provide a note from their doctor, teacher, parent, or adult supervisor. If an athlete is late to practice and does not have a note, it will be assumed that they were skipping practice.

Week 2 Schedule

Parents Meeting Agenda

Coaches Introductions

Required Documents

Team and Personal Goals

Returning players have begun work on their season goals. Keep some focus on those and be consistent revisiting them. We will spend time each week reflecting on how the goals are progressing. For new players, once the confidence with the clubs and the swing are developed, we will start goal setting. 

About League


Practices will take place at Indian Peaks, alternatively, if the weather does not cooperate at either the School Gym OR at Top Golf in Thornton if there is availability.  We will take some time this year and focus on flexibility, strength and conditioning, as well as golf swing fundamentals, course management and the mental game.

The Summer Golf League is intended to get students involved, meet each other and better prepare for the upcoming CHS Golf Season. 

We will be playing Youth On Course (YOC) member golf courses. If you don't have this pass yet, CHS will sponsor this membership for you. Let me know so I can arrange your subscription. 

To start our series, we have reservations at TopGolf, on Thursday June 23rd from 10-12 am.

Coach Bill's Book Recommendation 

"I just finished a book that I think you might find instructive for the kids an us. It’s  “The Pro, Lessons about Golf and Life from my father, Claude Harmon, Sr.” by Butch Harmon.  Besides some fun stories he has a number of things he’s learned about the game and life. He also discusses his instruction of Tiger which is fun." - Coach Bill.
