On the Musselman-Dunne Tour, Jarman took second at Frankfort Country Club with an 18-hole score of 79, losing in a three-way playoff.
He played in the Kentucky Junior Amateur in Elizabethtown Wednesday and today. He shot a 42 on Wednesday and is four strokes off the lead.
Jarman says there's one reason he's played so well recently.
"Practice, practice. When I don't have tournaments, I'm usually out here (Old Bridge Golf Club) doing something," he said.
Jarman said he's had more success on the Pepsi Tour, where he plays in the 11-12 division, because his age group just plays nine holes, as opposed to 18 holes on the Musselman-Dunne Tour, where he's in the 12-13 division.
"I can keep my concentration through 12 or 13 (holes), but I can't keep it for a full 18 holes," he said. "I just get kind of tired because of some of the courses we've had to walk and it's really hilly."
Jarman credits his win at Peninsula for giving him a confidence boost.
"I haven't been winning over the past few years," he said. "So that win kind of helped my confidence a lot. Just a reassurance I can win."
He acknowledges he's still working on getting the confidence to think he can win every time out.
"There's still a few kids that I'm not sure if I can beat. When I go out there, I'm thinking, 'Oh, I'm going to come in second today,'" he said. "But I've learned that I can play with them, I can play with anybody in my age group and that I can compete."
Jarman has also avoided posting huge scores, keeping him in contention in most tournaments. Jarman has eight top-four finishes in 14 events this summer. His highest score is a 46 - which he's shot four times - and he's carded 37 once and 38 four times on the two tours.
His play this summer has given Jarman a huge boost of confidence he hopes will carry over to the high school season.
Wants to make high school team again
Jarman, who played in varsity matches for Boyle County last season, wants to again be in the top five when the Rebels open their season July 30 in the Boyle County Invitational at Danville Country Club.
"My biggest goal is just to make the high school team again," said Jarman. "You don't really think of a sixth-grader as playing high school. I was quite surprised."
Since he played in varsity matches last season, Jarman knows he won't be as nervous as he was a year ago.
"Region was really nerve-wracking. But mostly, it was just really fun. Most of the guys were nice to me and accepted me as a teammate. So that was really fun," he said. "I already know everybody. I don't have to impress everybody this year."
