Special scramble format benefits Bobcat golfers … and their coach

October 9, 2008

Basehor-Linwood junior varsity golfers competed in a scramble hosted by Shawnee Mission Northwest on Tuesday.

The tournament was played with a bit of an unusual format where coaches played the nine-hole scramble with their golfers. Basehor-Linwood shot 40 in the tournament, and finished in the middle of the pack, though team results were unavailable at press time.

Basehor-Linwood shot four strokes better than it had a week before in a similar format at Shawnee Mission North.

Coach Ben Chapman said the tournament was beneficial to his younger players.

“The coaches really like it, we get to play, but we are able to show our players by example how to play, whether it is course etiquette or how you play a shot,” he said. “This gives us the ability to show by example. We are allowed to talk to them throughout the tournament and help them learn how to play.”
