Consistency is a key when it comes to the game of golf.
On Tuesday, Jace Hobart provided that consistency for the Starkville High School boys golf team.
Hobart shot a 41 on the first nine holes and backed that up with the identical number on the second nine for a total of 82 to help the Yellowjackets win a tournament at the Mississippi State Golf Course.
"This will help Jace build some confidence," SHS coach Sam Bryant said. "He wants to go lower and I want him to go lower. I need some 30s when we have nine-hole golf."
Hobart said making putts was what seemed to put him in the best position to success.
It was surprising since he hadn't really worked on his putting game going into the tournament.
"I actually sunk more putts than I thought I was going to," Hobart said. "I didn't practice putting when I came out here. I didn't putt at all.
