Greenwich High School senior Charles Schrohe was named the FCIAC Player of the Year/MVP this week after having an outstanding regular season for the Cardinals’ boys golf team.

Schrohe is the No. 1-ranked player in the state, sporting the lowest scoring differential in the state. He earned medalist honors in almost every match Greenwich played this season and recently put himself in the program’s record books.

Schrohe shot an eye-opening 5-under-par 30 for Greenwich in its match against rival New Canaan at Greenwich Country Club recently, breaking the team record for nine holes. His record-breaking performance sparked Greenwich to a 145-155 win over two-time defending FCIAC champion New Canaan.

Schrohe, who will play Division I golf at Lehigh University next year, also tied an FCIAC record with that great round of 30, which he shot at the No. 1 spot in the lineup.

Previously, he carded a 32 in Greenwich’s season-opening match against Brien McMahon, which then, tied a team record for low score with four other players.

At the 2022 Holahan Tournament on Monday at Wee Burn Country Club in Darien, Schrohe placed third overall, shooting a 78 (39-39). Colina Firda of St. Joseph of won the Holahan Tournament, posting a score of 73 (37-36-73). Harrison Browne of Staples was the runner-up (37-37-75), followed by Schrohe’s round of 78.

Andrew Flynn of St. Joseph was fourth (80), Sean Watchmaker from New Canaan placed fifth (80) and sophomore AJ Enslein of Greenwich was sixth (41-40-81) for the Cardinals.

Junior Jack Hopper finished with an 82 (38-44) and teammate Owen Duda, also a junior, posted an 84 (38-46-84) for Greenwich at the Holohan.

The 2021 season saw Schrohe finish second at the CIAC Boys Division I State Championships at Tallwood Country Club in Hebron. Schrohe, who will play golf at Lehigh University next year, shot an even-par 72 at last season’s state tournament.

He will lead Greenwich into the FCIAC Tournament, which takes place Thursday at Rolling Hills Country Club in Wilton. The tournament is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.

Greenwich last won the FCIAC Tournament in 2019, which capped their three-year reign as conference tournament champions – they also won the title in 2017 and 2018. New Canaan won the tournament the past two seasons.
