Morris Sets New Standards For Female Golfers
On Tuesday, Aug. 25, sophomore Cheyenne Morris finished as the low scorer for the Tyler Consolidated Silver Knights golf team. She was not the overall medalist for the match, and her score of 50 was not particularly spectacular, although it came on a relatively tough-and unfamiliar-Golf Club of WV near Parkersburg.
This is the first time in the history of Tyler Consolidated that a female golfers has finished as low scorer in a match
“Cheyenne is just a sophomore, and I expect that over the rest of this season and the next two years, she will continue to set new standards for female golfers at our school,” said TCHS Head Coach Joe Griffith. “Cheyenne is the best female golfer that I have had in my coaching career. On my list of all-time averages for golfers at Tyler Consolidated, there is no girl with a better average than what Cheyenne had last year. She is just a sophomore, but I think she has great possibilities for her future.
Her mother works at Riverside Golf Course in Sardis, Ohio, so Cheyenne has spent a lot of time there. But she isn’t old enough to drive yet, so over the past several years, it has been very difficult for her to get rides to and from practices and matches. But this hasn’t kept her from her dedication to improve her golf abilities. She is willing to overcome the obstacles that she encounters.
She has taken some lessons, and that has helped a lot with the foundations of her play. Like all golfers, she sometimes struggles with certain parts of her game, and like many younger golfers, that struggling often brings frustration, which she is learning to channel into getting better. She is having trouble right now with her iron shots, so we are working on that.
“I am confident that her game will come around soon and that over the next few years, she will be posting some very solid scores,” said Griffith.
