“Jake is one of the best junior golfers in Texas and one of the top in the nation in my opinion. He was heavily recruited by Division-1 schools and went on a run this summer where in 10 events he finished first five times and second four times including big wins at AJGA Billiards Factory Championship, Starburst Junior, Greater Houston City Junior with a 64 and then almost won the HP Byron Nelson and Texas State Junior finishing second in both.  Jake has a very mature approach to the game that I love and he has a very repeatable golf swing that is proven under pressure. Also Jake knows how to win and he will come in and make an immediate impact.”
