Q&A with Jacob Davis, RHS golf senior

Q. How old were you when you started playing golf?

A. I was in the 10th grade when I started playing.

Q. Was there anyone special in your life that helped you become a great player, and how?

A. My grandfather was the one who got me started playing, and my teammates Brayden Bendall and Jaceton Murray helped me improve to where I am today.

Q. How do you get ready for a game?

A. When I’m getting ready for a tournament, I try to relax and get loose. I just want to be ready to play my game.

Q. What do you like to do when you are not involved with golf?

A. If I’m not playing golf, I just want to be hanging out with my friends.

Q. What factors do you feel have influenced you the most to become the player and person you are today?

A. Golf has taught me that If I want to be successful, I don’t have to go about it the same way someone else does. There’s lots of ways to make a par.

Q. Did you have any routines or superstitions before or in a game?

A. Before I take the first tee, when I’m warming up, I always play my first hole on the driving range, then I go get confident with my putting.

Q. What is your favorite golf memory?

A. My favorite memories will always be practice. Just getting to play golf with your friends is hard to beat.

Q. What golfer has influenced you most in the game? Why?

A. Jordan Spieth has always been a big influence because he’s not the longest hitter on tour but he can still play with anybody.

Q. What is the greatest obstacle you have had to overcome in your playing career?

A. When playing golf you face many obstacles, such as trees and water hazards, but the biggest obstacle you have to face is yourself. If your mental game isn’t where it needs to be, then you’re going to struggle no matter what.

Q. What is life after high school golf for you?

A. Fortunately for me, golf is a sport that can be played long after high school. Golf is a sport that can be played for the rest of my life.

Q. What are your thoughts on your season coming to an abrupt end?

A. The season coming to an end is sad, but it’s not the end of the world. There’s a lot more to life than high school golf.
