After being featured in the Gazette and being one of the top ten in the state, varsity golfer Gregory Lewis 10 already has a lot going for him. With 14 years of experience, he is passionate and dedicated to making this sport a long term career. 

“I’ve been playing golf for about as long as I can remember, so it has been my way of living my life in what I want to do,” Lewis said.

For Lewis, technique plays a crucial role in his execution and overall perspective of golf, and is constantly developing.

“The most important thing when it comes to golf is you have to stay mentally strong, so really if I can keep my mental game in check, then that’s what’s going to matter,” Lewis said. “I like to practice how I play, that’s the best way. I form good routines and get good habits while I’m practicing. They tend to show when in competition, that’s what’s important.”

When being involved in a sport in high school, managing other responsibilities can be a struggle. Often times, it’s a battle between having good grades and pursuing an athletic activity for students. But for Lewis, nothing will stand in the way of his performance in his sport.

“School’s always tough with that one. We do have a make-up policy for people who play sports in school to follow. We get two days after we come back, so I just make sure that I’m going to talk to my teachers and let them know when I’m going to be absent,” Lewis said. “With my social life, I always try to stay in touch with my friends over social media, as it’s very important and I always try to hang out with people outside of school as well.”

Lewis has traveled around the country, placed second in regionals, and even been featured in the Gazette newspaper. “The sophomore carded a 2-over-par 74 (The ball was hit in 18 holes a total of 74 times) to finish as runner-up at the Class 4A Region 1 tournament last week,” the writer of the article featured in the Gazette said.
