Do you think ill make my high school golf team?

Question by swimsurfdive: Do you think ill make my high school golf team?
Ive been playing for two years, and go out on the course sometimes. On a par 4 or 5 course, i get areound 7.
With a driver, I can hit a little more that 100. And my balls fly pretty straight, and not slice.
Is that bad? Ive never tryed out or played competitivley, but i reall ywant to do golf. Any tips or suggestions?

Answer by old man on the hill
don’t know how good other golfers are at your school but i would guess no

your school golf team will most likely be made up of individuals who have played for more than two years

with a driver 100 yards isn’t much. many players of all kinds of different skill levels would be hitting a 9 iron 100 yards or more

i encourage you to continue playing as much as you can. as you play more you may find you distance and scoring ability will improve

maybe try the golf team again when you have played more

    I say that you should go for the tryouts. It’ apparent to me that you are not going to set any club records this year but everybody started out at the same place. The fact that you only hit the ball a hundred yards with your driver is a definite shortcoming ,although the fact that you hit it straight is a plus,and should give the coach something to work with.

    it depends on the other players at your school. that’s about what i shot when i made my high school team, but it’s different everywhere.

    I would have to say NO because you dont drive very far most people
    drive on average 200 yards to 250.Once you can make some pars and or bogey every other hole I would say you dont have a chance.
