GFS Golf in Full Swing

Five members of the GFS Golf team embarked on the program's first annual spring break training trip to Myrtle Beach earlier this March.

After winning first and second individual titles at the Girls' Golf PAISAA tournament last spring, the Tigers look to build on their inaugural season's successes. The Tigers and their two coaches, Caleb Mactavish ’09 and Brent Howard, spent three days at The Classic Swing Golf School learning from Director of Instruction, Ted Frick. With personalized attention from various instructors, each team member underwent video analysis of their swings and engaged in drills tailored to their specific needs.  

In addition to the Classic Swing Golf School Sessions, the team squeezed in four afternoon rounds of 18 holes, playing upwards of ten hours of golf per day, while still managing to find time for fun. 

Head Coach Caleb Mactavish ’09 reflected, "Over shared meals, playing practice, team-building activities, random alligator sightings, and through good makes and bad breaks, our trip to Myrtle Beach played an integral part in enhancing our golf skills, developing leadership qualities, and creating life-long memories. We are extremely proud of how our team conducted themselves, represented GFS values, and returned home as better individuals, golfers, and teammates." 

He continued, "Brent [Howard] and I are extremely grateful to the student-athletes and families who committed themselves to this trip, to all the fine folks in Myrtle Beach who took care of us, and to the athletic department for your efforts in supporting our young program in its ascent to greatness. We couldn't be more excited about where we stand and all of the potential in front of us." 


The Tigers open league play against Friends' Central at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3rd and will take on Westtown on Monday, April 8th.
