Now that she did it, Mogie Adamchick knows it can be done.
The Leesville Road junior golfer shot a personal- and round-best 33 on Sept. 14 in a Cap-8 meeting. Her score was 2-under par at the Wildwood Green Golf Club.
The Pride golfer said her putting drove the score even though “going into it, I hadn’t been putting so great.”
Adamchick has been golfing competitively for three years and has since been part of the Pride’s varsity team.
Never miss a local story.
She said she was excited after shooting the 33.
“I’ve been working really hard and it finally paid off,” Adamchick said. “It was a great accomplishment. Now I know it’s possible. I don’t expect to achieve it every single time, but it motivates me in the back of my mind that I can do it.”
Adamchick has enjoyed both the competition and friendships golf offers. She said although they play on opposing teams, many of the area golfers get along and support each other.
Her Pride teammates look up to her, as she often teaches the younger players about the game.
The most valuable advice Adamchick has for golfers is to “stay positive throughout, don’t ever think too much and stay focused.”
Adamchick finished all-conference last season. She wants to break into the Top 5 in the state finals this year.
She also hopes to pursue a college golf career, and said she has the support of the area golf community.
“We’re all pretty close,” Adamchick said through a light giggle. “Some of the friends I’ve made, not even playing on this team but just in high school golf, they’re just great people.
“It’s fun to play golf with them.”
