Covid-19 Golf Interview with Nathan Gaskins

I decided to dig into the golf team by asking Nathan Gaskins a couple of questions about his game, the team, and if and how Covid-19 will affect next year’s golf season. I went into stuff like what his clubs are to skill sets of everyone on the team. Next year the team will be losing two very good players. So I asked him how the next year will be without them, and what the next year’s varsity team will be.
