Detroit’s women golfers are happy to be back competing – finally.

Covid-19 eliminated their spring season a year ago, as well as their 2020-21 fall season.

But now the NCAA spring season has started, and the Titans have been working hard over the last year to get back onto the golf course.

Senior golfer Elle Greenlee and the rest of the team practices out of coach Larry Hamilton’s indoor golf studio.

“We try to utilize the indoor studio time and simulators as much as possible as well as trying to get down to the south as much as we can to hit off grass and prepare for the upcoming season,” Greenlee said.

The warmer climates of southern states have been a draw.

“A lot of us have traveled to warmer places so that we can practice on grass and outside,” said senior Kendall Payne.

The girls have been careful regarding Covid-19.

“On top of not being able to play last year and losing out on some quality tournament rounds, it has really separated our time together in the practice setting,” she said. “We only see each other really at team workouts. Everything is different so we all have had to adjust individually.”

The women competed Feb. 28 through March 2 in the Kiawah Island Classic in South Carolina, placing 35th.

They will be in Mobile, Alabama, the weekend of March 19 for the Bama Beach Bash.
