Golf player looks back on his time at ABAC

     The spring 2019 semester for ABAC’s golf team is underway. Earlier this month, the team traveled to Melbourne, FL for the Eastern Florida Invitational where they finished in seventh place with an overall score of 907 points. ABAC’s Adam Park and Will Bozeman placed within the top 15 of 72 players.

     Bozeman individually finished with a total of 221 points. He signed on to play for Coach Larry Brynnes when he first came to ABAC in 2017. He attended Westwood Christian Academy before coming to ABAC.

     This is Bozeman’s last semester at ABAC. He will be graduating in May and said that while he is excited, he is a little sad.

     “This is my last semester at ABAC for golf, I am a little sad about it, I’m really going to miss my Coach, Larry Byrnes, and all of my teammates.”

     Bozeman’s teammates for the spring 2019 roster are Joshua Campbell, Matthew Cheek, Hunter Dokey, Thomas Lupien, Adam Park and Tyler White. Bozeman said that his favorite memory of being a part of the golf team is from his freshman season when ABAC’s golf team won the region and district tournament and made it to the National Tournament.

     Golfing has always been an important part of Bozeman’s life. When asked how long he had been playing he said, “I have been playing golf ever since I could stand up, so probably since I was about one or two.” This dedication to the game has led to Bozeman pursuing it throughout his academic career. Bozeman is a turfgrass and golf course management major.

     Bozeman said he plans on continuing his golf career and attending a Division I school. He wishes the best for upcoming and hopeful players on the golf team.

     “The best advice that I can give to the future players would be that short game is very important, always work on your short game.”

     Bozeman and the rest of ABAC’s golf team will be traveling to Albany, GA for the Georgia Southwestern Invitational on Feb. 24-26. Good luck to the team and to Bozeman on his senior year.
