My name is Drake Kaufman and I have strong interest in yourcollege golf program. I am currently a Freshman at Ottawa Township High School in Ottawa, Illinois and will graduate in 2024. My goal is to find a college that will work well with my goals to become a better golfer on the course, as well as academics.
During the past summer, I played golf six to seven times a week every week, saw vast improvements in my game, found a passion for golf, and dedicated myself to practicing and conditioning even more. I currently shoot under 80 consistently on any course. I believe by the end of the 2021 summer I canconsistently be shooting under 78.
During my freshman year of High School, I was able to make the varsity golf team helping them win a regional championship. I was selected first team Illinois Interstate 8 all-conference and also qualified for the IHSA state tournament by shooting a 76 at sectionals. Unfortunately, the Covid pandemic didn’t allow the IHSA state tournament to take place in Illinois.
During college, I would like to work towards a degree in Sports Management. My goal is to someday become a club professional and potentially run and manage a golf course. I think you would find me to be an extremely hard worker. I amsomeone who will hold himself and their teammates accountable on and off the course. I am very dedicated to conducting myself with integrity, knowing full well that how I carry myself, on and off the golf course, not only reflects on me and my family but also on my team, my coaches and the school in which I attend.
