Young, local golfer makes it big

Posted: Monday, Jul 15th, 2013


Jordan Costello has worked hard to prepare for the many tournaments he will be competing in this summer.


PINEDALE – Jordan Costello, a rising sophomore at Pinedale High School, is certainly making a name for himself in the golfing world. After winning the high school state golf tournament last fall, he has gone on to play at the Wyoming State Amateur Championship, the Public Links Qualifier, a tournament at the University of Texas and has qualified for the Junior America’s Cup in Hawaii, all this summer.

At the Wyo. State Amateur Championship, Costello finished fourth of 88 golfers. Some of the other competitors included the University of Wyoming, University of California and Utah State golf teams. At the Public Links Qualifier, Costello finished fourth again, of 40 players. He competed against anyone who plays on public golf courses, which included the University of Wyoming and Brigham Young University teams.

In the beginning of the summer, Costello traveled to the University of Texas, where he took part in a golfing camp. He had the opportunity to meet the coaches and players, as well as play in another tournament, which he won.

“In the long run, I would like to get a scholarship to go to the University of Texas,” Costello said of his college plans.

This week, he is competing in the U.S. Amateur Qualifier in Jackson. The competition is comprised of the best non-professional players in the nation. The winner will compete at the U.S. Amateur Tournament where the games are televised. According to Costello, after the pro-tournaments, the U.S. Amateur is the largest tournament in the world.
