The Louisiana Junior Golf Tour member spotlight is a monthly article highlighting the strong talent in our state. Our September junior golfer to be featured is Logan Batiste III of Slidell. Logan is a rising senior and has been a member of the Louisiana Junior Golf Tour(LJGT) since its inception in 2019.  Here is our Q&A with Logan:

1. What is your favorite golf memory?

My favorite golf memory was meeting Tiger Woods. I met Tiger in 2018 at the PGA Tour Championship at East Lake. After Tiger made the winning putt on hole 18 I waited with kids at a volunteer station to get his autograph. 

2. If you were a golf club, which club would you be and why? 

If I were a golf club, I would be a putter. The reason why is because of three reasons. The first reason why I would want to be a putter is because it is arguably the most important club in the bag. The second reason I would want to be at putting is because the putter is used on 99% of holes. Lastly, 9/10 in pressure situations it comes down to a putt. Those are the reasons I would want to be a putter. The putter is very valuable and is in every bag.

3. What is your dream golf course to play? 

If I had to choose one out of my top 3 I would say Augusta National. A lot of great moments in golf have happened there such as Tiger winning the ‘97 Masters. That helped my love for the course. 

4. Along with yourself, who would be in your ideal golf foursome? 

My foursome would consist of Tiger because he’s the goat, Rory the nice guy from Ireland, Coach Oscar my First Tee coach, and myself. 

5. Favorite PGA or LPGA player?

My favorite player is Tiger Woods.

6. What sport would you play if you did not play golf?

If I didn’t play golf, I would play basketball. 

7. Favorite golf movie?

My favorite movie is Bobby Jones: Strokes of Genius.
