Tri-Nine girls’ golf staying competitive
October 1, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
SANFORD - In most parts of North Carolina, the round that Middle Creek’s Britney Smith shot at the Sanford Golf Course would have stood apart from the majority of competitors.
Not so in the Tri-Nine Conference, however, as eight other girls were within four strokes of Smith, with two tying her mark of 37, and Lee County freshman Muk Shoomee besting them all with a 36 on her home course Wednesday.
Players are learning that the Tri-Nine is a tough conference for golf, one that features players and teams that have an opportunity to earn high marks next month in the regional and state competitions.
“You can play at a lot of tournaments that don’t have the level of competition we see here in this conference,” said Smith, a senior.
“Because of the quality of golfers, you have to improve and you really learn to play well under pressure.”
