Summer golf in full swing

Before they work their way to the golf course, a lot of young golfers are learning their skills on the football field at Crockett Middle School.

The elementary-age boys and girls are joining others in junior high and high school during the week in the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah summer golf program.

"Monday through Thursday we have all the kids at Crockett working on their chipping," Pecos Eagles girls golf coach Tina Hendrick said.

"On Friday we come out here (to the golf course) with the junior high and high school kids and they work on their putting and playing holes."

She said there are 65 players overall in the program, with the biggest group, 24, in Grades 1 through 3.

"We've got 20 in sixth and seventh grade, 16 in fourth and fifth grade and 15 high school kids out."

While the younger group goes through just learning the basics, the older ones get to play nine practice holes on Friday, though Hendrick said even in that group there are some newcomers.

"Right now I'm working with the ones who never have played nine holes before. After I get them started I'll play with a different group each Friday," Hendrick said.
