Sharks Weekly Review: Golf (11/07/22)

HONOLULU – November is here, and so were some of the HPU Sharks golf team this week to join Sharks Weekly host Jason Genegabus for a brief look-in on the year round competitors and how the fall season has gone for the Sharks.

Men’s and Women’s Golf head coach Ed Kageyama opened this week’s edition of the Sharks Weekly with Jason Genegabus discussing the scheduling that goes into competing in collegiate golf during both the non-championship and championship seasons.

Coach Kageyama outlines the differences in preparation and mindset for each season that the Sharks take on, first how the fall is used to improve and ease the newest additions to the team into higher-level golf and then the spring is the true championship push.

Coming back from the first break (10:47), it was time for the players to join in on the fun. Genegabus introduced senior men’s golfer Keil’iokalani Kamelamela-Dudoit and sophomore women’s golfer Kellie Yamane and got the brains working by asking which two phone applications they would keep out of all the current ones on their phones.

The golf unit then discusses Dudoit’s second career hole-in-one with Genegabus. The senior golfer took listeners through his choice to put down the bat and ball in baseball and continue on with golf to a higher level.

Entering the show’s third segment (22:32), Genegabus dives deeper into last year’s contributions from Yamane and what Kageyama saw from his sophomore golfer this fall that indicated how the Iolani grad can continue her ascent into the HPU women’s golf history books. 

The crew then talked about the usual schedule for a collegiate golfer at HPU and how practice changes depending on the time of day and the course practice is being held on.

This week’s version of Sharks Weekly closed with a final segment (34:27) diving into the age the crew would stop aging if they had immortality. 

Genegabus helped put a bow on the show by asking Kageyama the best way to get in contact with HPU golf and the best way for these high school athletes to make it at the next level.

You can catch Sharks Weekly every Monday at 9:00 AM HST on HSRN 95.1 FM/760 AM, at or in our podcenter following the completion of the show.
