    I attended this 2 day event in Sioux Falls, and would like to congratulate the Gusties women golfers on a fine job. It is quite obvious that their focus is high, no doubt facilitated by the numerous coach visits. About the coach visits. As a life long golfer, MSU-Mankato player parent, and in general interested golf person, I, as well as our other parents observed quite a bit of distraction when your coach arrived, until he left each player during his coaching rounds The Gustavus players rigid focus is surely coached, and I would like to see more of that from the Mankato players. The Division lll #4 national ranking is admirable. However, going forward, I would hope that the G. A. coach could take his player out of earshot and peripheral vision range until the other players are done hitting. Basic golf etiquette dictates this. This is NOT a solo observation, having polled the other parents and recalling previous events.that I have observed. And this is not sour grapes, either. Maybe Division lll rules circumvent my complaint-I doubt it My daughter did not want me to write this, but did admit that it is distracting. Possibly her focus would not drift had she played at Gustavus. And Scott Moe did try to recruit her. Good luck and have continued success. I’m not angry, just concerned and hopefully constructive Sincerely Dan Halvorson Red Wing, Mn
