Lady Tiger golf season finally starts here Monday
By Jay Davis
With temperatures hitting the 70s and staying there for a few days, it looks like the Lady Tiger golf season is going to get started on Monday.
The Lady Tigers host the Mobridge-Pollock Invitational at Oahe Hills Golf Course on Monday.
“It’s going to be wet, but whatever we can do to have it, we will,” said coach Jason Weisbeck.
Weisbeck said his girls are way behind in their games after not getting outside to practice for the last three weeks. But thanks to Charles and Becky Peacock, the girls have had access to a golf simulator and have played some golf that way.
Weisbeck worries most about the putting, as the Lady Tigers have not had access to any greens and have not done any outdoor putting all spring.
“We have been doing some putting in the classroom,” said Weisbeck.
But most of the golf learning the last few weeks has come from books.
“The girls know the rules better than they ever have,” said Weisbeck.
As far behind as the Lady Tigers are, they and their coach know they are just as far along as anyone else in the state.
“Everyone is in the same boat,” said Weisbeck.
The snow caused the girls to miss the first four meets on the schedule. Only three remain; the home invite on Monday, the CSDC meet in Faulkton on May 2 and the pre-region meet in Pierre on May 6. Then the postseason will be upon them as the Region 3A meet is next on May 13.
Weisbeck said he will be working with Mobridge-Pollock AD Joe Lenz and some fellow schools to see if they can work out a meet between the pre-region and region meets.
