“The whole team is a great bunch of kids who want to work hard to get better,” Grayson County Golf’s head coach, Tony Embry, said in regards to the 2019 season.

Each team member has been putting in the effort to improve their game, including summer lessons taken by each member of the girls’ team.

“Our team most definitely has the ability for an individual to qualify for the state,” Embry said.

Their biggest weakness remains a lack of mental fortitude; however, Embry remains optimistic as they continue to improve from week to week.

“We have one bad hole, and we think the round is over," said Embry. "We are working on ways to stay focused and try to eliminate poor body language and not allow one bad shot to turn into one bad hole then turn into one bad round. I tell the players golf is a very frustrating game. You can never go out and say, 'I played well yesterday, so I'm guaranteed to play well today.' On the other hand, a bad day of golf yesterday can turn around and be your best round today.”
