Proctor leads All HB boys golf team

ANDERSON — Pendleton Heights golfer Colin Proctor had a short-lived sophomore season.

A back injury he sustained playing basketball t took him out of all but the last few weeks of his second season playing varsity golf for Pendleton Heights, and once he made it back, he wasn’t the same.

His team finished sixth in sectionals and Proctor bowed out at regionals as an individual, failing to make it back to the state meet where he had gained experience as a freshman.

Yet with just over a single season of high school golf under his belt, Proctor was thrown into the leadership role on a junior-heavy varsity squad, leading them to Pendleton’s first team appearance at the state meet since 1935 where they placed 10th with a two-day team score of 32-over par.

But rather than being an extremely vocal leader, Proctor’s coach, Jim Phillips, said his junior star did it simply with how he carried himself. Proctor led by example, he said.

“I think he kinda took over the leadership role this year of the team,” Phillips said. “I think he kinda pushed some of the other kids a little bit, not so much about what he said but just seeing him out there working on his game chipping and putting when everybody else was leaving.

“He was more so an example rather than telling them to do more.”

Proctor said that although he managed to go to every single meet during his sophomore season to cheer his teammates on, being out on the course and able to control the outcome of the shots with his clubs rather than his energy and advice as a spectator was incomparable.

“I just felt a lot closer to everyone,” Proctor said. “I felt like I had a lot more support this year because I was actually playing.
