Johnston, SC — The Wardlaw golf team has won back-to-back Class-A Independent state championships in South Carolina. They've done so in large part to senior Daniel Wooten. He is this week's WJBF Scholar Athlete Award winner.
In addition to golf, Daniel plays basketball and is the head of the school honor roll at Wardlaw. Daniel's work ethic is derived from the life lessons he learned while growing up at the golf course. His dad passed away when Daniel was younger and his mom would drop him off at the local course. The folks at the course served as a second family for Daniel and helped him through the loss. He also became a great golfer along the way.
