Port Washington returns two of its top five varsity golfers this season, including No. 1 player Antonio Feciskonin.

Third-year coach Scott Kosidowski is pleased that about 25 golfers are on the team this year.

“This is probably the deepest team I’ve had,” he said.

This is Feciskonin’s third year on varsity. The No. 2 player is senior Jordan Gardipee. No. 3 is senior Chad Spaeth, who’s in his second year on varsity.

Then comes juniors Nolan Mueller and Max Kelly, and senior Chris Andree and Nolan Max.

The North Shore Conference lost Germantown and Milwaukee Lutheran but picked up West Bend East and West, Slinger and Hartford.

“I’m hoping to make a little progress in the new North Shore Conference,” Kosidowski said. “I want to crack that first tier this year if we can.”

He said he hopes his team saw how composed the professionals were when watching last week’s Masters Tournament.

“They hit bad shots, they know how to recover,” he said.

“You can’t fit that ball through the eye of the needle or those two branches like Phil (Mickelson) can. Take your medicine — punch out and go for a bogey, no worse than a six,” he said.

Avoiding big scores such as eights can make a big impact.

“They had a ton of three-putts when I started. Without me teaching them a new swing — just avoiding three-putts and to play for bogey — your scores are going to be lower,” Kosidowski said.

The team’s motto this season, he said, is “one chip, one putt.”

The first meet is Saturday, April 14, at the Washington County Golf Course.
