    Mayer talking about Sparrow:
    "Jack started coming to our camp a number of years ago and it has been very rewarding to see him blossom into one of the best players in our state. Every conversation I've ever had with Jack has been positive and every situation I've ever seen him in, he has handled in a positive manner. His strengths on the golf course are his length off the tee and his club head speed, two difficult areas of the game to teach. Once we help him dial in his short game, and particularly his wedge game, I think he will have the ability to do great things. He comes from a strong Hoosier family and we welcome them into our family."
