54 Hole Challenge and Retreat

Author: admin | Filed under: Article


The official qualifying season began with the 54 hole challenge. For the past three years we have started the season by playing 54 holes in one day. It was fun to finally have the entire team together on the golf course. Above is freshman Larry Iverson III surveying a birdie putt. The three new freshman played great, however they were unable to to dethrone the two time defending champion Nick Taylor.

Nick won his third 54 hole challenge shooting a one under par 212. After the final round we drove straight to Bremerton to begin our team retreat.
The first day of the retreat was spent cornholiling, playing pingpong, and some evening fun on the golf course. The team of Nick Taylor and Kevin Spooner were unbeatable in the cornhole tournament. After cornhole we moved to the course and played a two hole cross country golf tournament. It was alternate shot on two holes that were each over 700 yards. This time two of our freshman finished on top.Larry Iverson III (left) and Chris Williams edged out two other teams by one stroke. As you can see they were fired up with the victory! The next morning we woke up and went back to campus for the game of a lifetime. We all stormed the field at the end of the amazing 16-13 victory over USC. The retreat will end tomorrow with the final two rounds of qualifying that will decide the five players that will play in the Ping Golfweek Invitational.
