HS Golf: The Olkowski Way

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. When you love something, you want to be as close to it as possible. For the Olkowski family, that meant setting up shop right on the edge of their favorite local golf course.

"We are a golfing family and everyone plays so it made sense to move on the course"
- Gary Olkowski
Trevor's Father

It may be about having fun, but the competitiveness within the family acts as the grindstone to keep their skills sharp.

" it's what we do together and it bring us together, its keeps us competitive... it is a way of life for us"
- Trevor Olkowski

That way of life has lead to some interesting battles between the brothers and their father.

" I beat him when I was ten or so, he knew it was coming"

"I don't think I've ever beat him, I really don't"
- Gary Olkowski
Trevor's Father

That competition, made him a good enough golfer to where he caught Colorado's attention, and he is now committed to golf there next fall. Trevor also says that overthinking the game is the worst possible thing you can do.

" You have to stay relaxed, the more relaxed I am the better I play... between shots I'm not thinking about golf, maybe basketball or school or something like that"
- Trevor Olkowski
