Chapman’s Danny Jackson – Call Of The Wild Athlete Spotlight Presented By Commercial Tire

By Hayden Swope

Chapman golfer Danny Jackson has been striving to win all season. With big goals, and lots of training, that is what Jackson has been doing heading into the postseason. 

“My biggest goal for this season was to shoot mid seventies every tournament and focus on hitting more greens and regulation,” Jackson said. “I believe that at the beginning of the season it wasn’t the best, but now toward the end of the season I’ve been playing some very good golf and I’m proud of the work I’ve put in. My stats for the season is an 81.4 average, and the lowest round I shot was a 75. I have two wins and placed in the top ten in every tournament.”

Jackson’s favorite memory from the year was what most golfers’ biggest goal is… winning. Between the many tournaments played, Jackson had his fair share of wins throughout the season, but his favorite happened at Concordia. 

“I think my most memorable moment from the season was winning, and I think my favorite win was at the Concordia Invitational,” Jackson said. “I won in a two-hole playoff after driving the green, and made birdie to win.” 

Besides the successful golf season, Jackson also had his successes in the band room. 

“I’m in band,” Jackson said. “I love music and have loved music for my whole life. I play the alto saxophone, and was honored to win Best Musician this year in my band class.”

Jackson hopes to continue playing golf, and forever keep it in his life, whether he play at a higher level, or coach later on. 

“My goal and dream is to play college ball,” Jackson said. “I love the sport of golf and I really want my degree to focus somewhere in the golf industry.”
