Tolman golfers taking it one swing at a time

May 5, 2011

PAWTUCKET — When Tolman High’s golf team gathered at Pawtucket Country Club on Thursday afternoon for a dual-meet with North Providence, the Tigers represented a varsity sports program whose success is not based on its win-loss record.
“In the case of golf, our first goal is to just expose the kids to the game,” Tolman athletic director John Scanlon admitted. “A large number of kids (at Tolman) have not played golf. We’ve always felt golf is a lifetime activity.”
