Another Win for the Golf Team!

ERIK TOBIAS ’09

It was a damp, gloomy afternoon when the swirl of yellow and blue hit the soggy turf of Putterham Golf Club. The Beaver Golf Team sported their new overwhelmingly colorful yellow and blue Vineyard Vines uniforms for the first time this year. The team was off to a brilliant start as usual, having seven wins and one loss this year. However on October 10th, Beaver played a newcomer to the league, Portsmouth Abbey. Both teams headed into this match tied for first place. Both teams came out strong, but Portsmouth Abbey stood no chance against Beaver’s skilled team. The team claimed five wins and one tie that day. This match moved Beaver into first place. As Max Campion put it, “It was close today, but we really stuck this one out and won the match.”

Max is currently one of the best players in the league and is a co-captain of the team. He came in with a whopping one over par, 37. The team’s number two player, Adam Buchinder, came in with a level par, 36. Erik Tobias, the team’s number three player shot a two over par, 38, while the rest of the team shot scores of 40, 41, or 48. As coach Larry McKinney said, “Not only did the team play well today, but they were the best dressed team in the league.” Some say the colors intimated the other the team, but as a co-captain Jamie Beckingham put it, “we simply played our best out there today!” The team has four more matches left this season and if they continue on pace, they will have won their seventh title in the past eight years. Good luck Beaver Golf team!
