You know how excited golfers are when they shoot their age?
Mary Gai is telling everyone her son Andrew shot her age.
That’s a Longshore course record.
Andrew’s 10 birdies earlier today helped him beat the old mark. According to George Buck, his father — the long-time Longshore pro, also named George Buck — held the record for many years. Mary says that record was 62.
That means Andrew — who as a sophomore in 2009 led Staples to an undefeated record, and the state championship — beat Buck’s mark by a phenomenal 3 strokes.
“I’m sure 59 will be the mark forever,” George Jr. says.
Unless, a few years from now, Andrew shoots his own age.
There’s no rush. Andrew is only 19 years old.
