Madison Durr is one of the top golfers for Salina South this season. Durr shot 89 as a freshman at the Hays Regional last season and has a nine hole scoring average in the mid 40’s this season.
“I would really like to make it to state again this year not only individually but hopefully as a team also,” Durr said. “A goal I have set for myself is to try and shoot in the 80s and also just really working on fundamentals and getting better.”
While golf has come naturally to Durr, she still has some weaknesses that she has been working on.
“I am fairly positive and enjoy golfing with people and making new friends, but I thrive to be good and want to be perfect,” Durr said. “This is a weakness because it makes me a little upset on the bad shots because I know they could have been better.”
Last season was such a confidence booster for Durr, who admitted she knew she had the game to play well at regionals, but was not sure it would happen as a freshman.
“I knew I had the potential and just needed to keep it up and stay out of my head,” Durr said. “This showed me that I was good and that I could reach these goals and since then I have gotten new clubs which has really helped.”
