Youth Leads Milford Golf

It is fairly unusual for any team to have two sophomore captains, but that's exactly what Milford golf coach Jay Potty has for the 2014 season. "Our two sophomore captains played in every match last year and they are my two best players," he said. "We are inexperienced, we have five seniors and four of the five had never played in a varsity match before this season. We are struggling a little bit, but the kids are working very hard to get better."
Sophomore Ryan Tomaso is one of the two captains. Potty says he is one of the more dedicated players he has come across. "Pretty much any day from the end of March through the end of November, he is at the Hopedale Country Club practicing playing or taking lessons," he said. "He played in a number of tournaments during the summer around Massachusetts and Rhode Island and had a couple of wins. It was a good experience for him. He is only a sophomore, but he is going to be a tremendous player."
Fellow sophomore captain Anthony Arcudi has taken his stroke average down from around 45 into the low 40s this season. "Anthony is another one who is always playing golf," Potty said. "He has a tremendous swing and a great head on his shoulders for the game. The future looks bright with Ryan and Anthony as a 1-2 tandem."
Freshman Zach Tammaro has also been a contributor in every match. In a stroke play format, the four lowest scores are counted towards the overall team score. Tammaro has been able to factor in Milford's score despite it being his first year in the program. "He is seeing some different courses and he's handled it well," Potty said. "He has a nice swing and the perfect mentality for golf, nothing rattles him. He doesn't get too high or too low."
With three consistent performances from match to match from the young players, the Scarlet Hawks have been searching for someone to step up and deliver that fourth low number. Senior Jared Hoover, who played last year as a junior, has posted a couple of rounds in the low 40s. Fellow senior Joe Donato is in his first year as a varsity player but is also lowering his average score into the mid-40s. Freshman Andrew Fauerbach is averaging in the high 40s, but has also contributed to a match.
"We are searching for someone to break through and give us that fourth score that's in the mid-40s or better," Potty said. "The scores in practice are much better, but it's obviously different going from practice to a match when the pressure is on."
Milford started the season with a 171-189 victory over Stoughton before dropping four consecutive matches. The Hawks lost by just four shots against Canton and had another single digit loss to North Attleboro. "It's all about experience, we are trying to gain that experience," Potty said. "We have a core group of young guys, however, and that will certainly bode well for the future."
