Walk onto a golf course and you’ve stepped into Kyle Corey’s office.With the meticulous attention for detail of a CFO, Corey dissects the course she will play, making her game plan a science.It’s a maturity that Grapevine head golf coach Bryan Humphreys says is beyond the years of a girls golfer her age. “She goes above and beyond for herself, but at the same time she also passes that information on to her teammates,” he said. “She wants them to learn and understand the game as well as she does.”After winning the district tournament last year and leading her team to a second-place finish, Corey is preparing to take on the Fort Worth Junior Girls Tournament for the first time, July 15-17.Corey typically prepares for a tournament by walking the greens on the course, mapping out the lay of the land and drawing arrows to represent the break of the dance floor in a notebook. She will then make puts from all different angles to confirm the arrows on her maps. She then makes copies of all of her notes and hands them out to her teammates to help them prepare as thoroughly as she does for the events. Whenever she finds herself questioning her next shot, she pulls pages and books of notes out of her golf bag to review the lay of the land, serving her own caddy. Many players who are newer to golf than Corey are often left scratching their heads at their apparently OCD golf partner.“I’ll pull all these notebooks and papers out of my bag and they’ll all look at me funny, like ‘this isn’t a library,’” Corey said. “It’s like I have a Mary Poppins golf bag or something.”For that reason, putting has become a sort of specialty for the rising junior. Corey said she has been on a hot streak with her putting game, which Humphreys attributed to her aggressiveness on the green. However, Corey has already begun her analysis of the tournament, and knows her short game will be equally as important as her putting game if she hopes to stay in contention through all three rounds.“The greens are very crowned, so I’ll need to do a lot of work on my short game and pitching,” Corey said. “I think accuracy is going to be at a premium, especially since all these courses we’ve been playing are going to be in the mid-5,000s.”Because of the added length, Corey is excited to explore more of her bag and practice shots with her lesser used irons that she will become comfortable with once the high school season rolls around. Ultimately, Corey’s goal is to play her way into a scholarship to continue her career at the collegiate level. However, it’s the academic prestige of the school that attracts Corey the most. Finding the right mix of a competitive team to go along with a solid educational experience is the challenge now.“My objective is to attend a school with a strong academic reputation where I will have an opportunity to play Division I golf,” she said.Most collegiate programs make a practice of pulling in commitments from players during the summer after their junior year. With that knowledge, Corey knows the march toward that collegiate career begins next week in Fort Worth.
