“I’ve always loved it. My dad loved to play, so I pretty much grew up on the golf course.”

“Just comin’ in and being with the team is a lot of fun.” 


What do you think the rest of the season will be like? 

“We’ve got region locked up, and I think we have a chance at state. Hopefully we can do a repeat of last year.”


Do you see yourself playing golf in the future? 

“For sure, if I keep getting better and play a lot, I think I can get a college scholarship.” 


What is your go to Karaoke song? 

“It would have to be “My Oh My”, by Macklemore. Great song.” 


Anything you would like to tell the readers of Davis High News? 

“Uh, you know what? Have fun, get good grades.” 


Cook’s persistence and passion for golf is inspiring and impressive. He is a team player through and through, and is as humble as he is talented. It doesn’t matter if your passion is golf or not, we can all strive to be as passionate as McKay Cook.
