Noah Moelter’s golf game is about balance.

He worked hard to make sure there weren’t any weaknesses in his game. If he was having an off-day putting, he made up for it with his irons. If he wasn’t striking the ball as well as he’d like, he trusted his putting to come through.

Moelter continued his annual ascent as a senior this fall. After playing in the Suburban One League championship as a sophomore and the SOL and District 1 championships as a junior, he took the next step in his final season and competed in the PIAA state championship.

Not only did Moelter compete with the best across Pennsylvania, he beat most of them. He finished sixth at states and is The Reporter/Times Herald/Montgomery Media 2022 Golf Player of the Year.

“I was really happy,” Moelter said of his performance at states. “The conditions were tough. It was temperatures in the mid-40s – it’s October, so it’s cold. It was cold, really windy, kind of dreary and I’ve always thought of myself as someone that when the weather gets tough and bad, I still know that I can shoot the same scores that I might when it’s really easy. Having bad weather, I always think that’s more fun. I’m thinking less about my mechanics and my swing and everything and just trying to get the ball as close to the hole as possible and figure it out as it goes.”

Moelter finished third at the SOL championship and fourth at districts.

“I felt a lot of pressure going into (districts),” he said, “just because I knew this was my last chance and I always wanted to make states. After last year, when I shot 81 and missed the Day 1 cut by like five strokes, just to go out and actually play well when I really needed to play well – that was awesome for confidence and just trusting in myself.

“Districts was definitely my best tournament. That was the first time I ever shot a tournament round under par. At states, there was no pressure. Districts is where there was all the pressure to make it, especially after playing well the first day. It was a lot of pressure to not mess up and make mistakes. Districts freed me up a lot for states and helped me play well there.”

One of his favorite matches from the regular season was an early home match against Souderton. He shot a 1-under 35 in nine holes at The Bucks Club.

“I’ve done that, I’ve shot under par by myself just playing a round,” Moelter said, “but to actually do it in a match gave me the confidence that I would play just as well in those matches as any other time.

“That gave me confidence the rest of the year. I freed myself up knowing I had at least one really good score in there so you’re not always fighting to have something good. I knew I had that earlier.”

Moelter is verbally committed to attend Saint Joseph’s University in the fall and play golf.

“The academics are really good and I’m interested in business and analytics,” he said. “They have a really good program with that. It’s 45-ish minutes away from me, so it’s not super close but definitely close enough where I feel like I’m still at home. That and the golf program is good being Division I in the A-10.”
