REYNOLDBURG — Getting a chance to play at districts for the second time was part of the dream for Centerburg High School senior golfer Faithe Carr.
Her first shot, however, was anything but a dream. It was the moment that everything could have come apart. Instead, how she responded set her apart.
Carr stepped right up to the first tee at Blacklick Golf Course in Reynoldsburg on Tuesday morning and shanked her shot badly. She helplessly watched the ball flail 75 yards and land in the pond along the left side of the fairway.
From there, she pulled her game together, parring six of the next eight holes. By the end of the day, she had 10 pars and a birdie to lead her team with a 12-over-par score of 84. The Trojans’ total team score of 397 placed them eighth in Tuesday’s OHSAA district golf tournament.
“My dad said that I lined up wrong and I already had a problem with that,” said Carr. “I thought I recovered pretty well but, if I could par all of those holes, why couldn’t I do it? Obviously, I was just nervous.”
