ABC All-Star: Carroll's Connor Hausauer

Posted: Updated:
To gain a good understanding about Carroll's Connor Hausauer, it's easiest just to ask his opponents.

"I've played Connor before, and I played with him in junior tournaments, and honestly Connor is probably one of the nicest guys you'll meet." says Rocky Mountain sophomore Tayler Noble.

Not only is he a tremendous person, he's also quite the golfer, and even as a Freshman, the Carroll Coaches knew he would be important, bringing him on their trip to the NAIA National Tournament.

"Connor was the guy we pegged to bring on that trip.  He wasn't on varsity, but he was someone we wanted to see it, and experience it. He's been nothing short of awesome the last two years.  He's been our team MVP two years in a row, which is tough to do based on stroke averages, and first team all conference this year.   He really started swinging it good the last week, and just went out there and did what he's capable of doing," explains Carroll head coach Bennett MacIntyre

What he was capable of doing, was winning the individual Frontier title.

"Overall he just played a tremendous two days of golf.  He rarely missed the fairway, and was always on the green, either two putting or one putting.  Overall his game was on point, and he deserved to win," says Noble.

After he finished the last hole, Hausauer was able to celebrate with his family and friends, a normally emotional time amplified by the loss of his father a short time ago.

"It was great to have my family and friends there at the end.  It's something I talked about with my dad, who always believed I could do this.  He passed away this fall, and I wish he was here, but it was really big for me," says the Carroll junior Hausauer.

"I gave him a hug afterward, and I told him if it wasn't someone from Rocky, I wanted it to be you.  He's one of the nicest kids, and he has a great game, and he deserved it, it really did deserve it," says Noble.

"To see him come through like that, and to be able to celebrate with family, having a lot of love around that green, it was awesome," says MacIntyre.

For now, he'll finish up finals at Carroll, and then it's onto the National tournament, in a much warmer climate.

"I'm very excited. I've never been to Florida. It's going to be great to play in some shorts and some short sleeves for once," says Hausauer.
