feature athlete KEEGAN EDINGER Golf


Golf is an unusual sport. When you have a good day, you can’t wait to get back out there, and when you have a bad day, you can’t wait to get back out there. For senior Keegan Edinger, he most definitely had several good days. This season, Edinger had several outstanding scores, shooting 37 against Clay, 39 against Maumee and Southview, and 40 against Springfield. Edinger shot 83 in the NLL Championship and an 87 in the District Tournament. He also shot 83 in the Knight Invitational and 82 in the Sylvania Open, both of which were pre-season tournaments. His hard work throughout the season earned him a spot on the post-season roster, as the team finished in fourth place at the District Tournament.

Who is your favorite professional golfer?

Keegan Bradley because he has the same name as me.

Who is your golf role model?

My dad is my role model because he taught me how to play the game of golf. If I ever need anything I know I can go to him.

What is your favorite golf course that you have ever played at?

TPC Sawgrass Players Stadium in Florida

You are 178 yards away from the pin, wind is howling in your face, water is on your right, trees and bunkers are on your left, what club do you hit?

My 5 wood. It is the club I hit best and I have the most confidence in.

What type of golf ball do you play with?

I usually play the Bridgestone ball. I like the feel off the face of the club and the ball flight I get.

What do you do to get prepared for a big match?

I work on what I am not feeling good on at the driving range and I make sure I get enough rest for the next day.
