Now that fall sports are almost all done, we are inching closer to the start of the spring season. To find out how players are anticipating this, I sat down with Stamford High Golf Captain Brett Lubliner for some questions.


  • What are you most excited for this season?
  • I’m excited to get back to competing. Last year was sort of a lost season for various reasons, but I think this year we have a solid core and could pick up a couple more wins than last season, and maybe make some noise in the FCIAC.


  • How long is the golf season?
  • We start out in March and continue into early June, and we really grow tight as the season continues. I’m hoping to maybe get some off-season work as well with the team and build up our muscles to get another 20 yards or so on our shots.


  • How can someone try out for the golf team?
  • We will have an interest meeting in March and then have tryouts at the Sterling Farms driving range. Blue cards and other papers are required like all sports, and then we will figure out who we bring to practice on the course and who we will train at the driving range.


  • What are some of the highlights of being captain?
  • It’s a lot of fun to get to lead the team and talk with the other team’s coach. I also get to announce our team’s lineup before the match, which is pretty cool. I’m also hopefully going to get another Varsity Captain shirt, those are usually pretty nice.


  • How are you guys in comparison to other teams in the FCIAC?
  • We’re better than Bridgeport, Norwalk, and McMahon usually. This year I’m optimistic we can compete a little better with some other schools. Two years ago we actually beat Trinity and Westhill, and this year I’m hoping we can pull off a similar fate.  City Champs 2019 yo!!


  • What’s your favorite golf club?
  • This is a real tough question, but I’ll go with my 56 degree wedge. Great out of the bunkers, real easy to swing, fits well in my hands, useful from anywhere inside 100 yards pretty much. I love that club, that’s my baby.
