MS Golfer of the Year: Nokomis 's Sam Smestad
Nokomis junior Sam Smestad leads Warriors to best season in nearly 20 years.

...“It was a year of growth, for sure,” Smestad said. “To shoot an 81 in team (championships), I was pretty happy with that. … To come back and shoot 75 for individuals was pretty much all I could do. I’m very satisfied with that.”

“He’s a quiet leader,” Brown said of the junior, who went 10-0-1 in matches while averaging a score of 39.9. “He doesn’t say too much, but he goes out and just puts up a good number every match.”

Given the way Smestad prepared during the summer, it was no surprise to see some strokes fall off his scores. Nokomis players are allowed to play at their home venue of Palmyra Golf Course for free and Smestad wore out the privilege, spending every moment he could find at the course. And when he was there, he was there for the long haul — it wasn’t unusual for him to spend an hour at both the practice green and driving range before playing, or to play two nine-hole rounds with a range session in between. ... -the-year/
