Head Coach Gregg Burke's Take

  • Dawson and Brody proved to be a terrific 1-2 start for us, but after that we were not good. A year ago, Brody did not play in one fall tournament and now he is our #2. That says a lot.
  • For the season, Dawson was really solid and beaten by just 11 players in four tournaments.
  • Brody was a terrific surprise and heads into the spring as a player who could be All-League. 
  • Chris is third but we need a lot more out of him to be successful. 
  • Jason gave us some terrific play and some rounds that we just can't have.
  • We gave Jason, Austin, and Burke at least two tournaments each to prove themselves. Their numbers speak for themselves.
  • Austin struggled as a first-semester freshman but clearly he needs to be in the lineup for us to have a chance to win the league and for our future beyond this year.  
  • At the end of the day, we gave away a ton of shots due to bad decisions off the tee, poor course management, and lack of focus. That will have to change.  All eight of us have to be better at what we do.
