Sophomore Daniel Daniel talks with coach Angela Chancellor during a tournament at Kingwood Country Club in March. (Maya Ortiz)

What’s your favorite club? 

“I would probably say my eight iron.”

What is your favorite course?

“I really like The Lake Course in Kingwood, I love the scenery. That’s the one I like to play with my friends, it’s also like an emotional thing, like an attachment.”

What is your warmup routine? 

“I kind of just get out and take a few shots on the range, putt around a little bit. My coach won’t want to hear this part, but I don’t like to stress about it. I kind of just like to show up and feel it out, see what’s going on and do my own thing.”

What do you like to eat or snack on during the tournaments? 

“My coach has these things called Crunchy Rollers, and they’re like these puffed rice cakes. They are so good, I love them so much. I also do these drink mixes, so drink mixes and Crunchy Rollers are what I go to.”

What do you do to prepare for the tournament the night before? 

“I like to meditate a little bit. I’ll do this like a guided exercise, it’s kind of like destress. I like to remember that I’m doing it because I enjoy it and I’m out there because I’m having fun. Even if I’m about to start playing badly, I mean you’re playing golf, that’s what my dad says. He says ‘any day on the golf course is a good day.'” 

Who’s favorite professional player? 

John Daly. I like the energy he has. If you haven’t picked it up yet, I just like to do what I like to do; and John Daly, he just goes out and has a fun time.”
