Revere/Malden golf team cruising along
Revere/Malden topped Medford, 47-25, on the links in Greater Boston League action last week at Mount Hood Golf Course in Melrose. The Patriots climbed to 6-1-1 on the season.
“The coaching staff was particularly impressed with the significant improvement in our team’s ball striking,” Revere/Malden coach Brandon Pezzuto said. “The coaches observed an increased number of fairways in regulation, and greens in regulation. Our golfers have been improving each match, and we are very happy with the progress we have seen thus far. As a whole, we have worked on controlling our tempo to hit more controlled shots, keeping more shots in play and in better positions to improve our scores.”
Many of the team’s golfers are beginning to compress the ball, causing the ball to project off the clubface, the coach added.
“Our focus moving forward will be strictly our short games, specifically lag putting, focusing on two putts rather than three putts, chipping with numerous clubs and pitching the ball with the goal of getting up and down,” Pezzuto said. “We are confident if our golfers approach our short-game work as deliberately as our work on the full swing they will further develop their repertoire of shots, filling the golf shot toolbox with even more tools.”
Some highlights from the Medford win include No. 2 Frankie Annunziata of Revere winning his match, 6-3, with a great birdie of the 165-yard, par 3 following a great approach shot to 3 feet.
No. 5 Jonathan Wells of Revere won his match, 7-2, with a well-played opening birdie on the 470-yard par 5.
Malden’s Tommy Cronin at No. 6 won, 7.5-1.5, with a steady round of solid play.
No. 7 Ollie Svendsen of Revere consistently battled and won his match, 6-3, and No. 8 Ryan Coggswell of Malden kept his ball in play and won, 7.5-1.5.
“Mount Hood is certainly a challenging course if you find yourself in difficult positions,” Pezzuto said. “And I think our golfers have learned that through our practice sessions. We were able to simplify the course by playing short of the greens as opposed to directly at flags, running the risk of finding their ball over the green with difficult scrambling positions. Our next match is Thursday 10/5 at Stoneham Oaks against Everett.
