After winning just one match last year, Milken’s golf team has gotten off to a tremendous start this season with a 10-2 record.

This year’s team is by far the deepest ever, as #1-8 players are equally capable of posting low scores on any given day. This is rare among most golf teams, as other teams’ top two players are typically far superior to the rest of the team. The Wildcats have succeeded thus far with balanced low scoring from everyone on the team.

The best round of the season so far has belonged to Ilan Chesed ’13, who shot a one-over par 37 against Flintridge Prep on March 13. This season’s MVP has lived up to the hype that Coach Dan Brink has thrust upon him since freshman year.

The Wildcats defeated Flintridge and Webb twice, teams they have never beaten before this season.

The rest of the season looks promising if the Wildcats can maintain this high level of play. With a few more wins, the young golf squad could run away with the league title, which they last won in 2005.
