I am Weston Derby, a Senior at Shepherd High School in Montana. I am extremely interested in playing golf while I pursue my college degree. Since my academic strengths are math and science, I am leaning towards an Engineering degree and looking into Electrical or Computer Engineering.
Living in Montana, I am accustomed to golfing in the elements, whether that is sunshine, rain, sleet or even snow. Through school and various junior/men's tournaments, I have golfed many courses throughout Montana and one course in Colorado Springs. I look forward to the challenge of golfing courses in other states and with increased difficulty.
I feel like my golf game is continuing to improve. I practice almost every day and have been entering all the junior and men's tournaments in the state. I achieved a 76.6 average last spring during the school season, and our team won the Class B State Championship. I have lowered my handicap to 1.9, and 69 is my personal 18-hole lowest score.
I am more than willing to work hard balancing golf and college classes, and am confident I will be an asset to a golf team.
