I wanted to be in touch with you and let you know the boys have been playing very well as of late. Donovan was the medalist this past Monday night in a golf tournament at Black Squirrel in Goshen. It was an invitational between Goshen, Northwood, Northridge and Fairfield (Donovan’s team). Again Donovan was the medalist. Just tonight (Thursday) Wynton shot a 38 and was the medalist for his tournament between Lakeland, Eastside and Fairfield (Wynton’s team). This is Wynton’s all time low from the men’s tees. In fact that is the lowest he’s ever shot on nine holes. I just wanted to say thank you for all the wisdom you’ve imparted on the boys and the skills that you’ve thought them. They are simply playing amazing and that has a ton to do with you. They are both peaking at the right time. Again thank you so much it has been a blessing to work with you. We look forward to doing that more going forward.
