Description of Program
The MIHS Boys Golf team has become a perennial powerhouse in Kingco with multiple titles achieved in the last decade. Led by Head Coach Tyson Peters and Assistant Coach,Connor Combs. Jay will be returning as a volunteer coach. The MIHS Boys Golf program helps competitive golfers improve their game by being more efficient in course management and strategy, shot and club selection, working with problem shots, and gaining more knowledge about the rules and etiquette necessary to play golf as it should be played. Through daily driving range use, on-course playing lessons, and weekly matches, the MIHS Golf program does not teach athletes how to play the game of golf, rather we focus on how to be successful at the competitive level, while also placing emphasis on sportsmanship and etiquette.If you are interested in being a part of our winning MIHS golf tradition, please contact Coach Peters or stay tuned for try-out information, available in spring/summer.
Golf Camp 2022: Sept 9th- Sept 11th , Suncadia
Program Philosophy and Perspective -- the foundation for all of our work:
It is our intention at Mercer Island High School to provide a complete athletic program. The Mercer Island program does not focus purely on wins and losses, but recognizes the importance of high school athletics in the development of self-esteem and worth in today’s students. Our coaching staff will work each off-season to create more opportunities for all athletes who join this golf program to develop as people, students, and athletes.We want these young men to grow into responsible adults, who understand how hard work and dedication to themselves and others can translate into success in all aspects of their lives.We will remain consistent over time in our expectations, which allows for all involved to understand their role within the program enabling growth each season.
As a coaching staff we will work this season to accomplish the following:
Expectations for playing on the MIHS Golf Team:
Basic scoring criteria (based on 18 holes, stroke play):
JV: 100 – 85, consistently
Varsity: 85 – Par, consistently
Be dedicated to the game of golf and the State Championship success of the MIHS Golf Team.
How to Improve your Golf Game over the Summer:
All competitive golfers take lessons, even professionals. During the summer months, to maximize my players’ abilities and to best learn the difficult game of golf, I recommend that my players take private swing lessons, participate in junior golf camps, play regularly, and compete in junior golf tournaments. Swing lessons are key in helping kids understand the game and develop their skills. Try to get a series of consecutive lessons with the same instructor for the best results.
I recommend as much tournament experience as possible for players, especially over the summer leading into the Fall season. The more comfortable and experienced players are in pressure situations, the better they will perform and the more consistent they will become during the high school season. Besides the junior organizations listed below, many local courses (both public and private) have junior tournaments.
