The golf season has officially started, but little progress has been made because of the KHSAA regulation that bans any golf practice when the temperature reaches at least 100 degrees.
Garnett said Trigg County High School Athletic Director Doug Gloyd has done as much as possible for the team and has been a helping hand to the program. Ralph Thomas has also “been great for the team” by raising money, helping the players, and providing water during practices.
The team has only participated in two events, both invitationals, so far, but have many events scheduled in the near future. Since they matches were played before school started, try-outs had not yet been conducted so Garnett took only the players he new would definitely be on the team. Tyler Mitchell was unavailable for the tournaments because of other events he was committed to playing in. The only other possible returning player, Josh Lowe, recently moved to Australia.
Derrick Rogers and Shawn Sizemore were the two Trigg County representatives at these events. They first played the Christian County Invitational at Western Hills and Sizemore finished with a 92 while Rogers followed with a 98.
They then traveled to the Davies County Invitational at Ben Hawes State Park where Sizemore shot a 92 and Rogers shot a 96.
With Tyler Mitchell now ready to play for the team as much as possible, coach Garnett has high hopes.
