Chase Feagin 2018

With feet planted squarely under his shoulders and eyes toward that distant green, Huntingdon Ambassador Chase Feagin ’18 has a grip on his future and is driving toward it, one stroke at a time. Chase says he chose Huntingdon “based on its high level of academics and to play collegiate golf for a great program.” His presence has made that program even better—his score of 4-under on the back-side of a golf tournament during the 2015–16 fall season helped lead the team to its first tournament win in five years. But they didn’t stop there. The Hawks finished the 2016 season second in the nation in NCAA-Division III. Chase aims to play professional golf after graduation and then to enter medical school, and since he’s carrying a 4.0 with majors in both chemistry and business administration, we think he’ll hole-in-one that medical school thing. Chase graduated from Houston Academy in Dothan, Alabama, and transferred to Huntingdon from Oglethorpe University. He says, “I love the academic atmosphere here. All the teachers want the students to do well, and they always make time to help in any way possible.” When Chase was 19 months old he was hit by a car and barely survived that accident. But just like he blasted through the back end of that tournament, he battled through recovery. If Chase could have dinner with anyone on earth, he’d choose—you guessed it—Jack Nicklaus. “He is one of the best golfers of all time, and I would enjoy talking with him about all of his achievements in golf—how he developed the mindset of a great golfer.” We think Chase is developing that mindset just fine. Here’s to a future of birdies and eagles for this Hawk.
