Coach Greg Ferguson’s Quote:

“Zach came in at start of practice this August on the same level and possibly a little behind a couple of our golfers, who were all beginners.  I have been very impressed with the hard work and dedication that Zach has shown. His improvement in such a short period of time is remarkable to say the least. If Zach continues this level of dedication, it will be fun to see how far he can go his senior season. I have high expectations for him next season.”
