Golfers continue to improve

It was too windy to fly a kite on Thursday, let alone shoot a solid round of golf.

The weather hampered the Swedes on their home course as they fell to Lexington 176-188 in dual action.

“It was a horrible day to play golf,” said coach Don Graham. “But I have to give the kids credit. We had a couple who had really bad holes here and there but they didn’t give in.”

Junior Jackson Graham was one of those who struggled early.

He made several shots out of the tall grass on hole No. 1 finishing with 10 strokes to start the meet.

He recovered well, the coach said, as he finished with a total of 44 to lead the Swedes.

“Even though he started rough, Jackson was able to keep his focus and turn it around,” Graham said.
