Ponca City’s Grant Jackson: Boys Golf Poll Winner – Presented by Law Firm of Boettcher, Devinney, Ingle, & Wicker



Ponca City junior Grant Jackson first got into the game of golf after his parents encouraged him to play. Since then, he has spent the last seven years playing in junior golf leagues at his home course, as well as for the Wildcats.

Jackson’s favorite part about playing for his high school is getting to represent his community alongside his teammates.

“I enjoy competing for my school and Ponca City because it gives a chance to represent both, not only in how I play golf, but also how I act as a person,” he said. “I know my teammates represent Ponca City and the Wildcats well in both areas.”

Jackson had a very successful season personally, and helped his team to have a great season as well.

“This year’s season has been my best so far,” he said. “On a personal level, I continued to better my game by lowering my average scoring by seven strokes through the season. As a team, we qualified for State, which hadn’t been done in Ponca City for a few years.”

Jackson shared that the game of golf has been important in his life for a few reasons. It has taught him valuable lessons that are necessary in all areas of life.

“Golf has taught me patience, integrity, honesty, and how to practice with a purpose,” he said. “Those qualities are not only good in golf, but good skills for life.”

Jackson is very appreciative of his parents, who he says have always been great role models in his life. Their example helps drive his efforts on the golf course as well.

“In school and sports, they taught me to always strive for better and to improve,” he said. “It’s nice knowing they support me in whatever I do. My parents have always taught me to give my very best effort in whatever I do. knowing I represent them and my school when on the golf course is what motivates me to be my best.”
