MOST talented 15-year-old golfers would be preparing to take on their club's junior club championships by in Cameron Jackson's case he's got bigger things on his mind.
Jackson will be part of a strong field for the upcoming Bathurst Golf Club Men's Championships over the next two weekends.
And he's in it to win it.
Jackson's golf has come a long way in the space of just a few years, and players from around the Central West got a taste of what he's capable of during the recent CWDGA Pennants competition.
The Bathurst pennants player of the year didn't drop a single tie throughout the competition and racked up some big victories in the process.
Bathurst might have gone down in the last round of pennants to Mudgee, giving up the title in the process, but Jackson's 6 and 5 win over Andrew Best showed off his talent.
After a rocky start Jackson notched up five birdies to record a comprehensive victory.
Now he's hopeful of carrying that form into this weekend's club championships.
"It was pretty exciting to play in that but a bit unfortunate that we didn't take the win as favourites going into the final round," Jackson said.
"I was undefeated through all my games and thought I played pretty well.
"It's just come down to walking hard and putting in the commitment. I'd say I'd be out there practising for at least five hours a day.
"It's all coming together and I'm really keen this weekend to see if I can chase down Reece Hodson."
Jackson will be applying the pressure to a bunch of big names from across the club, none more so than his fellow pennants teammate Hodson.
Hodson may have suffered his first ever losses in pennants this season but the Bathurst number one has been in fine form of late.
His recent eight under par round on the Bathurst course speaks volumes for where his golf is currently at.
"We'll have to wait and see how we go. Golf's a funny game and anything can happen," Jackson said, on the pursuit of Hodson.
"He'll definitely be the favourite but I'll go out there believing in myself."
Jackson is hoping to use the tournament as a stepping stone towards bigger goals in 2020.
And during a challenging time for sports across the region he's got the resources to help achieve those.
"I've got a ground at my house, where we've got a bit of land, so I'm able to practice a lot there," he said.
"It's great that we're able to continue with our sport while this virus is still going around.
"I'd eventually like to go pro. I'm going to try and get into the NSW Open at the end of this year."
The club championships will take place over four rounds across the following two weekends.
Hodson won his sixth title in 2019 with an eight stroke margin ahead of pennants teammate Justin Sutton.
In the 2018 edition of the championships Hodson was a seven stroke winner ahead of Phil Campbell.
