After playing in his third tournament, a 7-year-old Edan Cui wasn’t pleased with his performance on the golf course.

“At the beginning, I got pretty frustrated, because I didn’t do very well,” the Los Altos Hills resident said. “Then I played my fourth tournament, and I won for the first time. That’s when I started realizing I was actually very good.”

If boys on the golf teams at Los Altos and Mountain View highs hope to make the postseason, they’ll have to go it alone.

Los Altos coach Rich Fujii and Mountain View coach Jim McGuirk acknowledged last week that their teams will not make the Central Coast Section regional playoffs, but a few of their golfers could qualify as individuals.

As he anxiously awaits his family’s arrival from Montana, Tyler Martin has found solace in his new job as coach of the St. Francis High boys golf team.

“It’s brutal being so far from my family,” said the St. Francis graduate, whose wife, 11-month-old son and two stepchildren plan to relocate to the area at the end of the school year. “Being away from them, this is what I look forward to in my week. It’s the highlight of my week.”
