“We were real solid,” New Hampton coach Eric Olson said, “but when they came in, almost all of them said they left strokes out there on the course. Everyone thinks they can shoot better, and they are perfectionists … but they don’t take that putt they thought they should have made to the next hole. That, to me, is their secret.”
