Very proud of Paul Weyland Junior Golf Academy student Jake Slocum for his recent fine play in the Saguaro Amateur Series- Gobbler Men’s Amateur in Tucson, Arizona.
Jake’s rounds of 68, 72 and 71 for a 2-under par total on a difficult 7,400 yard long golf course gave him 9th place out of 88 competitors.
Jake is 16 years old. This was not a tournament for junior golfers. This was an event for the top collegiate golfers and amateurs from across the country. There were a total of 38 universities represented in the field.
Jake is building confidence and getting better every day. When he starts playing at Iowa State in two years he will have total belief and confidence that he can he can play and compete with anyone.
This kind of self-belief is essential for a junior golfer to achieve this kind of success. It’s my job to not only teach golf but instill self-belief and self-confidence in these young players. Jake works harder on the correct things than anyone I know, and it’s really paying off. Well done Jake!!!
