The tiny white ball arcs against the cold gray sky, almost too hard to see.
"That's a good ball," says Devon Kitchen, eyes focused as the ball drops quietly on the still-soggy fairway at Lincoln Golf Club on the northern edge of Muskegon.
It’s one of those days when spring backtracks, feels more like winter. Not a great day for golfing.
But it doesn’t seem to bother Kitchen. The 17-year-old is just happy to be on the course again. He's dressed in a bright orange cap, dark gray pullover and black pants. Tiger colors. Kitchen is a student at the Muskegon Heights Public School Academy, home of the Tigers. Before Kitchen showed up at the school, the Tigers didn't have a golf team. Now they do.
"It was a challenge," Kitchen says, "but we got here."
