including a 77 at the area championships at Field’s Ferry in Calhoun.
While neither Alexander nor North Murray’s team qualified for the Class 3A state tournament, Jackson, who was on hand scouting his new recruit that day, saw enough to convince him that the North Murray senior would be a solid addition to his 2018 recruiting class.
“Spencer kind of fell in our lap a month or two ago, right before school ended,” Jackson explained. “I was really impressed with his work ethic. He’s at the golf course pretty much 24/7. He was looking for a place to play in college and he was calling me quite a bit. I finally got to go watch him down at Field’s Ferry. I saw him play a good round, but I saw his passion for the game, which was the main thing. That’s what really sold me on him.
“We’ve recruited young men that really want to buy in and work hard and that describes Spencer Alexander to a tee. He has a good, solid game all around. We need to fine tune a few things with his game, but I think he’s going to be a big asset to us this fall and next spring.”
Jackson’s Bobcats qualified for the USCAA Nationals in Pennsylvania last fall in the program’s first year back after a year’s hiatus. They led the tournament with nine holes to play, but ultimately had to settle for fourth place.
Alexander believes the Bobcats will have a good chance to do even better this fall and perhaps even bring home some hardware.
“I think we have a really good shot,” he added. “With the guys we’ve brought in, I think we have a chance to win a national championship.”
Alexander said he plans to major in business.
