Coach Matt Tight reflects on the Cardinal's Fall season
Hello Fan’s of Stanford Golf,
The holidays are upon us and that means we are in the off season. The fall schedule sure did fly by and as I reflect back I see a lot of good things to look forward too as we approach the spring season and the road to NCAA’s. We capped off the fall with a nice showing at The Cordevalle Collegiate. The course played difficult this year as they added a bit of length but all in all our guys played well and a second place finish to a hot USC team was a fine showing. I feel we will be seeing a lot of the Trojans this year on the final day so vengeance is ours!!!
A highlight to the fall was a visit to Isleworth and the home of Tiger Woods. To be in the presence of greatness and see and hear what it takes to get there was pure magic. He was truly inspirational and I think our guys walked away with a better idea of what it takes to win, not only on the course, but in life as well.
The question I am left with going into the start of the New Year is who our top 5 will be. It’s a great problem to have and exciting to think about and I look forward to see who steps up! There was an epic match for the fifth spot to make the trip to Isleworth this past October and I foresee a lot of that happening this spring. Having the depth and the talent that we have only leads these kids to a much higher level of engagement in which case all boats rise. Its fun to be a part of and it’s what Stanford Golf is all about. Thanks to everyone for all your support and Go Cardinal!
