Hope To Minimize Mistakes

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Fresh from a second-place finish in the season-opening Wallace State Fall Invitational in Alabama, the Brevard Community College golf team now has set its sights on this weekend’s Webber Warrior Invitational in Lake Wales.

The tournament will be played Sunday and Monday at the Lake Wales Country Club. About 12 to 15 teams are expected to participate.

BCC Titans head coach Jamie Howell is expecting a competitive effort for the second of six events on the fall schedule.

“The challenge will be to have the guys take care of their business and run with a good round and minimize the mistakes during any poor rounds,” Howell said. “Learning to save shots is more art and determination than science.”

Howell said he also expects improvement from all five players over the 54-hole tournament.

“Our putting and short game both need to be more efficient,” Howell said. “We averaged 32.3 putts per man as a five-man team at Wallace State. That won’t get it.

“This group likes to compete and they do not complain, whine and moan during play. That’s not to say they don’t have moments of frustration. But as long as it is kept to a moment this group will thrive in the pressure cooker of competition rather than shy away from it.”
