Gasperini gets medalist honors in Heritage Invitational

SoVaNow.com / August 15, 2013
Peter Gasperini has played a considerable amount of golf this summer, some against excellent competition, and the off-season activity paid major dividends Monday.

Gasperini emerged as the individual medalist for the Heritage Invitational Golf tournament. Gasperini is believed to be the first Comet golfer to win the event in recent seasons.

The Comet junior missed few days this summer. He qualified for the State Junior Stroke play, which was fun. “I qualified for it the year before. I didn’t have a great showing, but I made the cut. This year, I played OK, (finishing) 20th out of 90.

“I shot even the first day, which on that course, is pretty good. I finished up 76-74. It was a fun tournament, and tough course,” said Gasperini.

Gasperini hopes to see the current edition of the Comet golf team make the state tournament.

Individually, Gasperini wants to win as many tournaments as possible.

Gasperini emerged as the medalist for Monday’s Heritage Invitational.

Gasperini shot four-under 68, and won in a three-hole playoff against E.C. Glass freshman Connor Burgess.

Gasperini has seen his game improve markedly.

“I’ve gotten a whole lot better off the tee. I’m finding more fairways and I’m hitting a ton of greens, 100 yards in, I’m pretty solid. I’m actually getting a few putts to fall here and there,” Gasperini said.

“I’d say my short game is pretty good. I can get up and down from a lot of different places. The more I work on it, the better it’s going to improve,” he said.

Gasperini would like to play on the collegiate level, but he is uncertain of his plans at the moment.

Gasperini’s older brother, Joey, a senior, is also on the team and one of the top producers so far for the team.
