Peter Starr - Award-Winning Student Golfer in Ohio

About Peter Starr

A competitive golfer since his middle school years in Ohio, Peter Starr played for three years on the Southwest Junior Golf Tour. These experiences prepared him for Midpark High School's varsity golf team tryouts, where he received the lowest score and became the first freshman over his coach’s 14-year tenure to make the team. By the end of his freshman year, Ohio’s Peter Starr had achieved the team's lowest stroke average and the team’s lowest score at the North Olmsted Tournament.

In his sophomore year, he received mention as a player to watch by The News Sun, covering Berea, Brook Park, and Middleburg Heights in Ohio. The paper cited his team-leading average of 42.3 over nine holes. His junior year featured his win at the Southwest Conference Championship Tournament with a 74, which tied him for the school’s 24-year record of lowest round in 18 holes. At the end of that season, he appeared in the News Sun's list of top athletes for the fall.

Peter Star continued to excel in his senior year. He received lowest stroke average and earned the Southwestern Conference 2nd Team Award, an honor he had previously received as a freshman and junior. He went on to Baldwin Wallace University, where he graduated in three years with a degree in criminal justice.
