Salina Central’s Jack Cain – Athlete Spotlight Presented By American Family Insurance, Jeff Wells

By Hayden Swope

After being the number one player on the Salina Central golf team, Jack Cain plans to stay there for the 2023 season. 

“It’s something I never would have thought I’d be selected for,” Cain said. “It feels pretty awesome getting the opportunity for something so unique.”

After a very successful season last year, Cain knew he was going to need to put in work during the offseason, and that’s exactly what he did. 

“I played as often as I could,” Cain said. “Every opportunity I got to go play I did. I also worked with golf instructor Dan Winters to get my swing dialed in for the season, so a big thanks to him.”

With the first tournament approaching, Cain knew he was going to have some goals that he would want to accomplish.  

“Some goals I focused on this season are shooting in the seventies consistently and improving each tournament,” Cain said. “The end goal during the postseason is to place well. An area that I wanted to improve and was my short game. The short game can’t ever be good enough. Having a solid short game is the biggest factor in shaving off the most strokes each round.” 

Cain plans to continue his education after high school, but wouldn’t mind furthering his golf career either. 

“My plan is to attend Fort Hays University with a major in nursing,” Cain said. “However I’d love to play golf at the Collegiate level if that opportunity comes up.”
