“It’s been fun to see some great golf as we progress through the season,” assistant coach Randy Stuckey said. “We are improving and more comfortable on the course, but we still need to feel more comfortable with success. When things are going well on the course, we have to feel like that’s where we should be. We have seen improvements throughout the season and are looking forward to next weekend when we have a good tune up for our conference tournament in two weeks.
The Gusties are hosting the Twin Cities Classic from Saturday to next Monday at Elk River Golf Club, Links at Northfork and Edina Country Club.
