Around the time current St. Patrick-St. Vincent High sophomore James McNally was learning to walk and talk he was also learning to play golf. Yes, even though McNally was only 18 months old, it seemed as if he was interested in looking for another type of birdie. “My family moved to Benicia at the time and my dad joined the Green Valley Country Club. A couple of times he took me out to the range. I had this little putter that was about a foot and a half tall and I would practice with that,” McNally said, with a laugh. Even though McNally’s golf clubs eventually grew larger, his scores on the links became a lot smaller. Last week the 16-year-old shot a match-best 36 in Tri-County Athletic League competition against Pinole Valley and St. Mary’s at Richmond Country Club. The wins over the two squads put the Bruins record at 16-0 as they won their second consecutive league title. McNally is the Times-Herald Athlete of the Week. He said he began the day struggling, as he four-putted on the second hole and was two-over par when he approached the third green. “I think the third hole was when I turned it around,” McNally said. “The greens were rough, so putting well was an advantage for me. I knew I had to stay positive and play smarter golf. I think I became more focused when putting and on my approaches.” St. Pat’s head coach Christina Walker agreed that McNally’s biggest strength may be his focus. “James is a mature kid. He doesn’t carry himself like a typical sophomore,” Walker said. “This year especially he’s more focused and really dialed in. You can tell in our practices and our matches. He’s always had the skills, but his biggest change this year has been his focus. He’s smarter off the tee box and he’s leaving himself with good putts, birdie putts.” In fact McNally had birdies on the seventh and ninth holes during the match, as he shot a two on the par-3 seventh hole and a four on the Par-5 ninth. Not bad for a kid that almost gave up the game a few years ago. “I have to give my dad a lot of credit because a few years ago I didn’t really like to play, but he still took me out most weekends,” McNally said. “I’m very grateful for that. At first I wasn’t too keen on playing golf anymore, but then after some tournaments I started to realize that I was pretty good. At the end of last summer I won a tournament at Diablo Valley and that really turned things around. I went into the tournament with the mentality that I wasn’t even going to place and I left with the mentality that I can continue to compete with players that were of a high-caliber.” This season McNally has become part of a trio of stellar golfers at St. Pat’s, as senior leaders Waylon Robbins and Julian Argonza have helped McNally shoot the Bruins to the top of the standings. “To be honest I’m not that surprised we won league because we have a very good team,” McNally said. “We have three or four really dedicated and pretty good players and it seems like all the other teams in the league only have one or two. So I’m proud of my team that we’ve done this but I’m not surprised.” McNally and the Bruins will compete next at the league championships on April 29 at Blue Rock Springs Golf Club.

Around lunchtime, in the north end of Toronto, the inexplicable happened. Taking a page out of the terror playbook that has […]
