Hughes, Passmore lead FHS golf girls charge

Led by a sophomore who qualified for the Class AAA state tournament as a freshman, Farragut High School girls golf is looking for one or both of its seniors to push the Lady Ads toward a special season.

“Anytime you have a player as good as Teleri [Hughes], I think the rest of it is finding somebody who can post you a good score at the two or the three spot,” FHS head coach Jonathan Cox said.

Hughes provides a one-two push with senior Chelsea Passmore (pictured).

Cox labeled Hughes “very talented, a very good golf swing. ... Great balance all around. Great short game, great chipper, great putter.”

Hughes said, “I'm changing my swing ... using my left side more. Swing coach Brad Rose recommended the change, Hughes added, “to get more distance.”

In 2009, Hughes won an international junior tourney in Wales, the Radyr Rose Bowl, in 2009.

Passmore, FHS No. 2 player, “has a lot of talent,” Cox said. “We've just got to get her comfortable playing competitive golf. She hits it really good, really long. We've just got to get the rust out of her short game.”

Passmore said, “As long as I can play good, and help carry my team as far as I can, that's really all I'm looking for,” adding her career FHS highlight was “shooting my lowest score ever in regionals my freshman year.”

Senior Stephanie Lockler, out sick early in the season, “Can be anywhere from [No.] two to [No.] three,” Cox said.

Claire Wickendon, a sophomore, “Has got a really good golf swing,” Cox said. “Really good short game.”
