Later golf season has its pluses and minuses

Ever since the season switch that moved boys golf from fall to spring, the boys have played district tournaments, where the top six teams qualify for regionals the following week.
From there, the top 3 teams at regionals move on to states. It's not like this for the girls, who just have regional tournaments in the fall.
The protocol the past three years has been that district tournament are held the Thursday and Friday before Memorial Day, but this year they'll be held at Memorial Day because the season has been moved back a week.
In fact, the state finals will be held the last weekend of the high school sports season, the same weekend finals in baseball, softball and girls soccer are held.
This has some benefits and some hindrances if you ask Kosmo. The most notable benefit is that it gives the boys an extra week to get their games sharp in what should be good weather.
The biggest drawback though is that when the state finals were held the weekend before baseball, softball and soccer, golf and lacrosse had the stage all to themselves with their state finals.
Now, golf might get the short end of the stick as far as attention and media coverage goes ending on the same weekend as baseball, softball and soccer
