The Team and Cuts

Hello Parents, 

I want to be unfront about some things with the golf team. 

Many people ask if everyone out for golf makes the team. 

Answer: No, we will have a try out and look at scores. Based on these scores I will cut the bottom players and refund their fee. 
We usually can get a 9 hole round in during the first couple weeks after spring break. Players will keep score using USGA rules. I will look at players swings and scores and make a cut. 
I do not like making cuts. 

More Info: This is a competive golf team not a place for a beginner. Students with little to no experience playing a full 9 holes from the Blue tees at Northern for example should talk to the athletic office about getting a refund. I would suggest using the refund to purchase lessons or a youth membership at the city courses. 

Here's the thing: I have one shared assisstant coach. He spends half of his time with the girls and half with me. Sometimes he is at Hadley while I am at NH. We will not be able to help beginners or get them on the course. Simply put, our coaching staff and facilities are stretched too thin.
Many days I can't get enough tee times or range space for my team because I share Northern Hills with two other teams and share Hadley with up to 10 teams. 

Let me know if you have questions, 

Dwight Miller

JM Boys Golf

Hello All, 

Here is some general information. Please email me with any questions. 

Practices are held at either Hadley Creek Learning Center or Northern Hills Golf Course. Players need to provide their own transportation to practice. We practice every day after school. Typically, 4pm to 5:30 if there is no match. 

Players must provide their own equipment and golf balls. The team will provide range balls during practice only if that is what we are working on. Some practices we will play holes while others we will do drills at the range. When we play holes, we will have tee times. Varsity and those with last hour off typically go first. JV kids go off later. Sometimes JV will play 5 or 6 holes and leave. It all depends on the situation. 

Jeans are fine for practice but not matches. There will be more information soon about uniforms and proper dress for matches. 

Most road trips leave from the JM gym doors. Conference matches I can bring Varsity (top 6) and JV the following 6. The remaining players will report to Coach Glanden at either NH or Hadley for practice. 

We will try to get out before matches start to establish our lineup. These qualifying rounds are typically 9 holes. Which could mean there will be times when players will not be done with practice right at 5:30. The snow or cold have prevented us from playing qualifying rounds in the past until after spring break. We will not practice over break. I will host a couple of meetings before spring break to talk about rules and team expectations. 

There is no formal practice during spring break. Courses in Rochester are usually not open. 

This website gets updated each Sunday night by 8pm. Players and parents can see the plan for the week. I will try my best to describe what practices will look like and who will be participating in any events. 

Some players will have a few matches at Hadley against the other Rochester teams. This is great for kids that can't break into the top 12 but made the team.  

Some matches are varstiy only. These invites are the top 6 only. The host charges us a fee to play in thier tournament. We will use our team money to pay for these tournaments. Funds come from our team fundraiser, more on that soon. 

I will be udating Remind soon and send out a team message. I turned off the reply option. I use this just for annoucements like rain outs or last minute practice cancelations etc. Please sign up. 

If in doubt about weather, check the website first. I will send out a Remind and email. All players will have me cell phone so they can text me as well. 

Team email is up and running. Let me know if you are not getting emails from me.

Collection for Manahan

I am collecting money to give to Mike Manahan, the pro at NH. He does so many things for our team behind the scenes. 

I am hoping for $5 a player. 

Please give me the money and I will either give him the cash with a card or a gift card to a restaurant.

This will really test your knowledge. Start as a beginner. I know I didn't do so well my first time through. But it does help to you get exposure to the rules. Some are so complicated.

These videos are a great way to review the basic rules of golf.
