Corso, a returning sectional qualifier, helped Providence to a second-place finish at the Joliet Central Regional with an 83 at Inwood. The Celtics are part of a tough field Monday at the Marian Catholic Sectional. The senior also plays soccer.
Being October, what’s been your favorite Halloween costume?
My family likes to get really creative with making our own costumes. In fourth grade, I went as a person taking a bath. I had a metal tube sticking up with a shower curtain, a shower cap and bubbles pinned all over me.
When did you get into golf?
My parents started me off when I was 5. I didn’t really start taking it seriously until my freshman year.
What’s been your best round of golf to date?
I shot a 79 at Silver Lake Country Club.
You helped Providence advance to sectionals. Tell me about your round at Inwood.
I had a rough start. I three-putted the first hole and was kind of down. But I came back and parred the second hole, which I think is the hardest on the course. That brought my confidence back up.
You switch from golf in the fall to soccer in the spring. Which sport do you find more difficult?
Golf is such a tough mental sport. Soccer — I love running and staying in shape — is more physical. I think they’re equal.
If you could pick anyone to play you in a movie, who would it be?
What will you remember about coach Molly Duffy after you graduate?
She looks so young, some people ask if she’s on our team. She’s really one of us and a friend to us, and she inspires us as a golfer. She golfed at Providence and competed at state.
