Bo Wardynski effortlessly drives a ball with a loud wack. The ball soars high into the warm air almost to the netting of the driving range. If you didn’t know any better, you would think Wardynski is just skinny kid. But you would be wrong.
“If he really sticks with it and if he wants it bad enough, I think he can make it to the pros, make it to the PGA.” says Mariano Adame when asked about Wardynski.
Last fall, Wardynski lead the Regis Jesuit golf team to their 4th place finish in State with his eighth place finish individually. Along the way a plethora of colleges have expressed interest in Wardynski and have offered scholarships to him.
“I’m looking for a college in the south somewhere warm. I have been talking to a couple Division I and Division II schools down south. The biggest school I’ve been talking to is the University of Colorado but I am a junior and I’m gonna have to see how everything plays out,” says Wardynski.
Bo should have no trouble getting into a great golfing school after the season he had this year, but for Wardynski this is bigger than golf.
“Not even like the tournament we were winning it all but, also getting to be with the seniors. Me being the lone junior, it was cool to be with the other kids. I had a lot of fun, after tournaments I would go eat with them. It was just a special experience for me,” says Wardynski.
For Wardynski, the people are more important than the sport. Especially the seniors who he played with. Seniors like West Point bound Eddie Custy, who has only played golf for two years and has not only played on the varsity golf team for Regis Jesuit, but will likely play for a team in college.
“My favorite moment is being able to have seen my progression through the years and being able to make the team and make varsity and have a pretty successful season,” describes Wardynski.
Both Custy and Wardynski were a little disappointed on how the team did in state but are also proud of what they have accomplished. The team lost a lot of talented golfers and it was up to a lot of new faces to try to carry on the Regis Jesuit golf legacy; Regis Jesuit has won state seven out of last nine years. Very big shoes to fill to say the least.
Wardynski is excited for the 2019 season. Once again, there will be a lot of new faces with three out of the four state golfers leaving for college.
Wardynski still believes that the team can be on top saying, “hopefully the team can get some state titles in the years to come. It’s gonna be hard to lose our seniors. We will have a young team and we’ll see how that goes in the fall.”
As for Wardynski individually, the next step is college, and the final goal is the PGA. Until then you can see Wardynski in the halls talking or in the library doing homework. But remember the name Bo Wardynski. That one day, not to far in the future, he will be a household name.
