Golf

Q & A with Richmond-Burton's Jordan Hahn

What do you feel is the biggest reason for your early golf success?

Hard work and always trying to be better than the day before, just really working on to be the best player I can.

What is the most exciting part of competing at the Callaway Championship?

I’m really looking forward to playing at Torrey Pines, one of the greatest golf courses in the world.

On playing with golfers from around the world...

It's going to be different, because I'm sure a lot of them don't speak English, so it may be difficult to commnicate out on the course.

What do you know concerning the history of the Callaway?

I know there has been a lot of big names that are standouts or hall of famers on the PGA tour, that have played in it and won.

On his golf travels…

I’ve played in Florida, Indiana, and soon in Michigan and California. I also played at several courses on a family vacation to Hawaii. I’ve traveled quite a bit.

What do you like about traveling and trying out different courses?

I love venturing out and finding the different feel of golf courses, while just kind of relaxing and having a good time, doing what I love.

What was your favorite golf trip thus far?

Definitely my trip to Hawaii. Having those great views with every hole looking over the ocean, great visuals overall.

What are some other upcoming events are you playing in?

I will be playing in the Chick Evans Junior Amateur Match Play Championship at Itasca Country Club and at an AJGA event at Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

On getting ready to play golf at University of Wisconsin soon….

I’ve always been excited and as soon as I committed, I always knew it was my dream school, definitely looking forward to it.
