Claudia Scott, a returning 3rd year player for TWHS Girls Golf, has many accomplishments to share at the close of the 2021 season.
She began setting goals for the season after tryouts. One of her biggest goals was to stay in the number one spot on the team, something that she has accomplished all three seasons that she has played for the school.
Another goal of hers was to “break 90” in every match. Breaking 90, is a golf term for hitting less than 90 times in one match. The less you hit in golf the better. Both of these goals were accomplished throughout the season. Some other notable accomplishments were winning third OCC, earning the “Player of the year” title, and getting her name placed on a state ballot for best player in the state.
Even though golf is a fairly individualized sport, Claudia had every intention to help the new girls on the team learn to love the sport, going into the new season.

“I was so happy to see how many girls joined the team and really got into the sport this year.” Said Scott.

Scott has advice for future players. “Golf can get repetitive, stick with it, work hard, and get comfortable with the uncomfortable when you’re learning. It’s definitely important to stay consistent, “said Scott

Scott would like to return in years to come to help coach girls golf for TWHS. Sh admits that coaching staff plays a big role in player success. Head coach, Rodney Hopkins, plays a big role in the success of the team. “Coach Hopkins is really well-liked amongst the team and keeps a great relationship with all of the girls, ” says Claudia.
