Coach's Comments: If rhythm controls accuracy and putting is the key ingredient for golf success, then Keenan definitely has what it takes to be a great player. He seems to have the fire again. His engineering major is really tough and his classes often conflict with golf practice. Good golf requires passionate practice. Keenan realizes that you have to love it, you have to find time for it, and you have to be diligent to practice all the areas that need to be good to play this game at a high level. I predict that Keenan will have several rounds under par this season.
