Chase Kaiser

A native of Natchez, Mississippi, Chase Kaiser decided to attend Gulf Coast to play golf.  He is also a civil engineering major, and after graduating from MGCCC, he hopes to attend a four-year college or university that will allow him to combine his love of both golf and engineering.

“Coach Thornton and Coach Snell showed great interest in me, and I thought MGCCC was the best place for me to further my golfing career,” he said.  “It is also a great place to get my first two years of college under my belt before taking it to the next level.”

Kaiser’s goals for this year are to be named First Team All-American and to drop his individual score below 71.  He would love for the golf team, now ranked No. 2 in the nation, to win the national championship.

I know that it is important for me to be a leader and a role model for my fellow teammates, and one of the things I want all of us to do is get a little better every day.  If we do that, I believe we have a great chance at winning the national championship.”

A member of Phi Theta Kappa, he said he also wants to improve his classroom performance.  “Engineering is a tough degree, and I want to make sure I am mentally prepared to tackle whatever is thrown at me in the next two years.  At Gulf Coast, I have learned to balance my busy golf schedule and making sure I get my classwork done as well.  It is the most important thing I have learned at MGCCC.  Our coaches always encourage us to prepare for both our golf meets and to study. Their support has meant a lot.”
