Men’s golf went undefeated last year with a 10-0 record and won the Conference tournament. It is looking to repeat this success from last year and continue to build the program.

“This is a place we have not been very often in golf, and it is fun,” head coach Cary Morrison said.

“Every team we play wants to hand us a loss now, so there are no days, rounds, holes or shots we can take for granted and not give our best efforts to.”

The team features just two seniors this year Charlie DeYoung and Taylor Cox. Also returning this year is junior Carter Doll, who was part of a duo that represented Webster at State last year.

“It was really cool to go to State,” Doll said. “I got to play against a lot of good players, and it was a good time to spend with [my] teammates.”

“With two seniors and three juniors right now, looking at Varsity matches and tournaments, we have a good veteran group to lead us into the season,” Morrison said.

“My ultimate goal is to win State obviously,” Doll said. “Just to get back to State and do even better would be great too.”

Morrison has been in the game since he was 13 years old. He played at Webster and went on to play in college. Morrison has been with the golf program for 13 years now.

“I hope the guys learn that this is a game you can play for a very long time [both] for fun and competitively,” Morrison said.

“Swing fundamentals and short game execution are such keys to good rounds of golf,” Morrison said. “When you are doing those things with consistency, you enjoy the game a lot more.”
