Young Mens ZEBRA GOLF PREVIEW 2016
The Zebras Linksters again have 4 of the top 5 players returning from the previous seasons Regional qualifying squad.  Thats a nice place to be but that also presents a large hill to climb.  Junior Killian Bailey (low scoring average in each of the last two seasons)  play #1 for the Zebras.  Sweet swinging Senior Aaaon Orr has had the 2nd lowest scoring average during each of the past two seasons  and will be expected to compete and play for the #2 position.   Junior Jackson Sawyer, who was the low Zebra at the 2015 IHSAA Regional, is expected to continue his steady improvement and will likely play in the #2-3 spot much of the year.  Senior Jaxon Jones is another player with a solid swing and tremendous potential.  He needs to get on track early and gain confidence quickly to give the Zebras a chance to be consistently solid.     He  should be able to play in the #4-5 spot on talent alone but if the Zebras are to challenge many of the higher level teams in the area, he will need to post personal bests on a regular basis.  Senior Daniel Butler had difficulty cracking the top 5 last season but should get substantial time in the #4-5 slots.  He is another player that will need to make nice strides if the Zebras are to improve scoring averages from last season and challenge for a sectional title.    In short, the team swings the clubs fairly well but will be working with new pitching, chipping, and putting drills in order to lower scores.  RHS should also have a couple new Freshman players coming in from RMS.  That team was the 2015 RRC Champions.  We'll see what the call-out meeting brings in February. 
 
The overall outlook for 2016 should be to expect another slightly  improved team with nice depth through the 6th or 7th position, very competitive matches and the potential for an even stronger team than last season's Regional Qualifiers.  A trip to the Regional should be expected.  A Sectional Championship is certainly within this teams grasp.  A trip to the State Finals is hardly realistic at this point.  However,  these guys do work hard during the regular season and have always made improvements during the year.  I'm anxious to see how the short game new drills and games will impact scoring.  There is quite alot of work to do.  GO STRIPE IT ZEBRAS!

Young Ladies ZEBRA GOLF PREVIEW 2016
The Lady Z's will start the 2016 season with several returning players.  Kinley Lingenfelter will be a Senior and returns with the lowest scoring average in RHS Girls Golf History.  She was the TRC Conference Champion and made her 3rd consecutive trip to the IHSAA State Finals where she finished in 16th position.  Rosalie Navarro, Jade Bennesh, Ashliegh Navarro, and Renae Bickle will also return to the squad and with continued improvement, this team could post 4 respectable scores every match.
 
The overall team outlook is still very unpredictable at this point.  So much revolves around those with interest making the effort to solidify fundamentals and make the time to improve that it is difficult to consider a TRC Team Title.  However, I think Coach Chad Thomas is hoping to make a run and I certainly think this team is capable of a few suprises.
 
The 2016 Lady Zebras will still be an underdog starting the fall campaign but it is always fun to watch these Z's try to catch their stride  GO STRIPE IT ZEBRAS!
Round Barn PGA Professional Lyle Lingenfelter
has designed a series of putters under the Intelligent
Design name and has limited quantities available for retail
distribution.  The 3 models (Believe, Trust, Expect) provide 3 slightly varied balance points to accomadate different stroke types and are available in either bead blasted silver or flat black oxide.  Each head is available with or without a sightline.  The 303 stainless steel putters are 100% made in the United States right down to the epoxy, grip tape, solvent and paint fill! The computer programming work is being done locally by JE Engineering (Jeff Elliot) and the putters are being milled at Machined Castings (Monte Hoffman), also in Rochester, Indiana.   Headcovers with the Intelligent Design Logo and magnetic closure are made by Delilah's Headcovers in Evansville, IN.  A complete list of USA Components will be available.
 
The design specifics will be presented fully in a pamphlet and a short video demonstrating the benefits will be posted as well.  Custom options are available for the milling of a name on the heel or toe area of the putter face although this milling has to be planned and done in small batches about every 3-4 months.   
 
Prototype putters have already won several college events, IGA Mountain Dew events, IGA Prep events and been played at the IHSAA State Finals.  One PGA Tour Professional has tested the putter as well.

A Brief Description....

The Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek (formerly Mill Creek Golf Course) is a traditional 18 hole layout located in downtown Rochester, Indiana. The Golf Shop moved to its current location, at the renovated Gerig Round Barn on the south side of the course, in January of 2005 and the golf course layout has also undergone some routing changes. The course is asthetically pleasing and challenging for golfers of all ability levels and additional improvements are underway that will continue to establish the Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek as one of the best places to play for golfers seeking both quality and affordabilty.

The course par is a very traditional 36-36 = 72, and each nine is a challenging blend of reasonable birdie opportunities and tough pars. The opening hole is a difficult starting hole that features a small lake down the left side and Mill Creek down the right side and crossing the fairway. Holes 2 through 4 offer a little relief and a chance to get into the flow of the round. The 5th through the 9th may well be one of the more difficult finishes to a nine in this part of the state. Included in that streatch is a Par 3 that can play up to 221 yards, a moderately long dogleg Par 4, and 3 consecutive holes that feature water almost entirely down the left side. The 10th is a par 3 that begins from an elevated tee in the shadow of the Barn and heads due East to a two tiered green gaurded on the left by a well placed bunker. The 11th is a 580 yard Par 5 that is reachable only by the longest of hitters. The 12th is a risk and reward Par 5 that is reachable in two with a carry over a large waste area or easily playable in 3 shots without ever needing to unleash the driver. The 17th is another risk and reward hole that can be a great temptation. A well struck tee shot will carry Mill Creek and leave less than 100 yards while a layup is much safer but requires a 175-200 yard approach. The 18th is a short par 4 that also features a small lake on the left and Mill Creek on the right. Scramblers may try to drive the green while those playing for their own score will likely hit a 200 yard tee shot and a wedge.
