After school every day, he would stay at the golf course until dark. He started to win big tournaments and started improving even more. In 2000, his father got sick and and passed, at the time Jason was only 12. He started drinking, getting into fights, getting in trouble, and his sister had run away from home for 4 years. Instead of sending his sisters to college, his mother sent him to Kooralbyn. He started to succeed again when he found Colin, who coached him through his career. He worked extremely hard and had a drive to improve, despite adversity and setbacks, to achieve his dream.
