Berryhill’s Logan Brooks – Golf Spotlight Presented by OU Physicians

 

 

Logan Brooks plays an interesting role as Berryhill High School’s only golfer. 

“Playing as an individual has its challenges, but also its rewards,” he said. “When you win, you know it rests solely on your shoulders, but I look forward to playing on a team in college. I appreciate my school for supporting me as an individual player, providing me with a coach, and allowing me to compete for my school. I appreciate all those in the Berryhill community that follow my progress and cheer me on. Go Chiefs!”

Brooks says that he has played the sport since he could walk. He loved to join his granddad, dad, and brother on the course.

“I learned a love for the game by experiencing it with my family,” he said. “Golf has always been my passion! I love the focus and discipline it takes to improve against yourself.”

Both of his parents, along with the rest of his family, continue to play vital roles in Brooks’ life.

“My role model, mentor, coach, and hero is my Dad,” he said. “He is always there, supporting me, encouraging me, helping with my game, and being an example of how to be a man. He shows me every day what it means to succeed. My number one fan in life and in golf is my Mom! I have a great supportive family, including my brother, grandparents, aunts, and uncles that do everything they can to help me succeed on and off the course.”

Another important aspect of his life is his faith.

“My faith is first, and is the compass that points the way. I want to be an example of Him in everything I do,” said Brooks. “I am a Christian, and I live by this verse: ‘I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.’ Galatians 2:20.”

Golf has taught Brooks valuable lessons that he can apply in all areas of life.

“The game of golf has taught me a lot about myself. It is not a game of perfect,” he said. “Doing the right thing over and over will produce right results, whether in golf or in life.  Consistency is key. Discipline pays off. Confidence will carry you through.”

Brooks said that this season had its ups and downs but he still pulled through with some impressive accolades, placing 1st in three of the five Invitationals he played, placing 1st at Regionals, and taking 4th in the 4A State Tournament.  

“Overall, I am pleased with my accomplishments, but looking forward to surpassing it next year,” he said.

Brooks graduates next year with the class of 2020 and has already committed to play golf for Oral Roberts University, which he is looking forward to.

“My goal was to play Division 1 golf and ORU was my first choice,” he said. “I look forward to seeing how God unfolds my future in golf and in life. I can’t wait to be a Golden Eagle!”
