MARYS — Carter Bowman used to be a football player.<br /> When he was 6, Bowman’s father took him golfing for the first time, and it was then they discovered that Bowman had a talent for the sport.<br /> By age 10, he was golfing every weekday starting at 6 a.m., when he and his grandfather would play 18 holes.<br /> “Once I picked it up, I got to be pretty good at it, and in eighth  grade, I helped out with the (high school) golf team and in going to their matches and helping them out I realized that my scores then were pretty close to being varsity as an eighth grader,” Bowman said.<br /> On the days when he and his grandfather would golf in the morning, Bowman would stay at the course while his grandfather went to work and play all day until his grandfather picked him up again at 5 p.m. Bowman spent all day on the golf course practicing during the week.<br /> “I don’t know that there’s anybody that I don’t know out at Northmoor,” he said.<br /> Everyone there treats him like family, he said.<br /> “It’s just a great sport,” Bowman said. “You can clear your mind and relax and get to know people and learn a lot of things. There’s no wall ...You can keep getting better and better every day that you play.”<br /> Bowman recently broke the school golf record with a score of 31 on nine holes. He bested the previous record by one shot. He said he hadn’t gone into the meet thinking he would try to pull this off, although he had been close to breaking the record several times before with scores of 33. The further along he got, though, the more it seemed like a possibility and he kept it in the back of his mind.<br /> “We were going down the 18th hole and I had a two-putt to break it, and it was probably one of the best feelings,” Bowman said.<br /> With the WBL tournament in the books, the Riders are now looking at sectionals, districts and state competitions. Bowman has made it to districts all three years on his own, but fell just short of going to state every time.<br /> “Last year, I missed it by one stroke, so that’s one of my main goals going into this year,” he said. “Going into sectionals, we can advance as a team ... and that’s one of our goals for this year, because we haven’t (done that) since probably ‘04. We’ve had a pretty good season ... We’ve gotten better and better as the season went on, so I think we have a pretty good chance of moving on as a team.”<br /> Bowman’s grandfather passed away last year, and every stroke Bowman has taken and every round he has played has been in his grandfather’s memory.<br /> “My grandfather always told me that if I kept my head on straight and focused, that I could do whatever I wanted to do with golf, so I keep that in the back of my head,” he said. “I think about going out every day with him and all that he did for me.”</p>St. Marys, OHMEREDITH ENKOFFRider Excels On Golf CourseThe Evening Leaderurn:publicid:dailypress.com:10064Change0Usable2014-09-19T18:00:17-04:00
