Union Signs Local Golf Standout From JCS

Jackson, TN—Local golf standout, Chris Webb, signed today to play golf for the Union Bulldogs. Chris Webb is currently a senior at Jackson Christian School where he has proven to be one of the top golfers in the area. Webb has seven Jr. PGA tour wins, four time Jackson Country Club Jr. Club Champion, and was named the 1998 AJGPA Player of the year. In 1999, Chris was district champion, region runner-up, and finished 4th in the state, and was selected to the All-State Team. Already this year, he has been a qualifier in the 2000 Coca Cola State Open, finished second place in the Pros of Tomorrow, and has been a medallist in 5 of 6 High School Golf Matches.

Union’s Head Coach, Keith Dorey is very excited about having Chris as a part of Bulldog golf program. "We’re not only signing a great golfer, but also a great student from a great family", states Coach Dorey. Dorey goes on to say, " he will be a great addition to an already talented group of guys." Chris Webb had 13 scholarship offers from Division I schools, including the likes of Ole Miss, Florida, Mississippi State, and Tennessee. Coach Dorey’s four-year plan is to bring a National Championship to Union University. Last season the Bulldogs went to the National Tournement and finished 20th. Coach Dorey adds, "This is a great example of the golf program here at Union and having a golfer of Webb’s caliber will be a perfect fit in reaching the goal of being National Champions."
