Senior Connor Herzberg hopes to have a great final season as a Tiger.

Unlike many other sports, golf is an individual sport in which the golfer has to rely on their own skill and ability rather than a teammate’s. Senior Connor Herzberg has been playing golf since he was four when his dad introduced him to the game.

“I love how golf is an individual sport because you have no one to blame but yourself whenever you fail, and when you succeed you know you did it all by yourself,” Herzberg said. “It is my favorite aspect of the game and is the main reason why I chose golf over any other sport.”

Connor has made many memories while playing golf including shooting his best score, two under par, at Forest Ridge. Sophomore Hunter Stanely has been friends with Connor for a few years and has seen his game improve throughout the season.     

“I have made lots of memories with Connor in our time playing golf together,” Hunter Stanley said. “I played with him when he shot his best round.”

Connor currently plays for the Broken Arrow golf team and hopes to lead his team to a state championship his senior year. He has been on the team for his entire high school career and has made many friendships and memories. With the team being very young this year, Connor has stepped up and helped the younger players on and off the course.

“Over the years, I have seen Connor become a leader and a good mentor to his teammates,” Coach Dakota Beller said. “I have also seen his game improve on the course each year and look forward to seeing him shoot low this year.”

Connor is currently committed to the College of the Ozarks and will attend in the fall. He has had many offers from other colleges, but ultimately chose the College of the Ozarks because of their golf program.
