Otterbein men's golf sets their sights on another conference championship

Men's golf has been trying to "perfect their craft" over the winter, but the spring season makes for challenges that the fall season doesn't

The Otterbein men’s golf team is working hard for the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) tournament coming this spring as their fall season concluded at the end of October. They have now kicked off their spring season having traveled to Tuscon, Arizona for spring break. 

Brian Booher is the head coach of the men’s and women’s program. He is in his tenth year coaching the women’s team and his ninth year with the men’s. He has led the men’s team to five straight OAC championships as well as being awarded OAC Coach of the Year ten times.  

"Our team has been working hard all offseason in the gym and on their technique in the campus golf and putting room,” said Booher. They not only work on campus but off campus too at the Westerville Golf Center.  

Quinn Gallagher, a junior on the team said the team has been training all winter for this season. 

“Golfers are always trying to perfect their craft and that is something that this team will always do. As soon as we finished the fall season the team was in the gym three days a week and practicing on our own whenever we had the time,” said Gallagher.  

With being around each other all the time, it helps that the team chemistry is so good according to Gallagher.

“The team chemistry has been amazing, that is something that we take pride in. We are friends on and off the golf course and support each other in everything that we do.”  

Their main goal this season is to get to the top of the OAC as they finished in first for the OAC fall preview. Although the biggest challenge for the team this season will be “to push through the tough weather and managing your expectations” says Booher.  

With the fall season being over, Gallagher says the team's main focus is on winning a conference championship. 

“I would say that this goes for this whole team when I say that it’s our conference championship” says Gallagher along with Booher stating, “The spring brings the OAC Championship, so for both teams that is always the one we most look forward to!”  

This season, their biggest rival in the OAC championship will be John Carroll University. Their next match for the spring season will be the OAC Spring Preview on April 6th
