Family Tradition

The Cermaks are to golf as the Kennedys are (were) to politics. The Cermaks are a golfng dynasty.

Pat Cermak continued the tradition of living up to his family’s name Monday at Glenwoodie Golf Club with a 2-under 70 that earned him medalist honors and also helped the Shamrocks get back to the state tournament for the first time since 2007. This will be the program’s second appearance at the Den at Fox Creek Golf Course in its history.

Pat’s oldest brother is a golf pro. Joe finished tied for fifth at the state tournament in his senior season in 2002. That’s what Pat should shoot for and beat. He can do it.

Joe, who plays on the Canadian tour, shot rounds of 76-78 at the Den at Fox Creek Golf Course. I believe Pat can do better. Talking to Pat after his round at Glenwoodie, he has the constitution to survive the roller-coaster that is the state tournament.
