Jordan Godfrey (US) won the FIFG 500 tournament in Acapulco. His -8 score was enough to beat Lucas Loustau (ARG) and Sharif Khatib (US) finishing second and third behind him. He talked about the next challenges and his dreams in FootGolf.
What did you think about the Acapulco course and the organization?
I have always appreciated the difficulty of Turtle Dunes. I love that. It can eat you up at any moment, but at the same time you are rewarded for quality FootGolf shots. Turtle Dunes is up there in my top 5 courses I have played because it tests every aspect of your game. It is very easy to come back every year when you have a course like that and when you are received so well from the Mexican federation.
How do you prepare yourself to compete in tournaments like these?
My preparation has always consisted of playing FootGolf rounds at local courses back at home. I identified a few opportunities I had in my last few disappointing events in Europe and tried to address them in time for the Acapulco Open.
What are your goals in FootGolf?
I have been playing FootGolf for 5 years now. My first objective is to become consistently the best player in the United States and then maybe one day in the world. I want to continue having more success with club and country. I will have some opportunities to complete a few objectives next month as we are looking to hold our lead against Mexico in the Battle of the Border and we are competing for our 4th national title with West Coast FootGolf.
