Proctor said he was nervous on the first tee, which he didn’t mind, but even he fell victim to short-game woes.
“My short game today was the worst it’s ever been,” Proctor said. “The greens were perfect today, I thought. They’re not hard to read or anything. I just personally didn’t make anything.”
As his teammates were walking to their cars to head back to the hotel, Proctor said he was going to stay around for a few more hours and work on his short game. The junior star hadn’t given up just yet on making an impact on this year’s state tournament.
“My goal for tomorrow is to break the course record,” he said with a chuckle.
Phillips said he thinks his players can play much better and hopefully move up into the top seven or eight teams before tomorrow’s round is over, a finish he said would be solid for the Arabians.
“We’ve only got one way to go, and that’s up,” Phillips said. “We didn’t play very well today. The kids I thought would play really well for us didn’t.”
The Arabians tee off between 9:21 and 9:57 a.m. this morning off the back nine, and live scoring can be found at golfstat.com.
