Harvard Men's Golf Adds Two to the Class of 2016

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Harvard Director of Golf Fred Schernecker will welcome two players to the men's golf program for 2012-13.

By Fred Schernecker

Recruiting is one area of our program that is 100% funded by the Friends of Harvard Golf.  Thanks to the generous support of our Friends, Harvard Golf was once again able to attract a talented group for the upcoming season. 

We will have big shoes to fill on the men's and women's team this year following the graduation of highly decorated key contributors – Tony Grillo, Mark Pollak, Connor Wentzell, Jane Lee and Christine Cho.

On the men's side, we welcome two prospects both of whom graduated from high school in 2011.  They are both eager to get back to the school routine. 

Rohan Ramnath is joining us from Weston, Florida where he attended Cypress Bay High School and captained the golf team.  Rohan is a winner of both the National Merit Scholarship and the National Science Bowl Scholarship.  On the golf course, Rohan finished in the top 5 in two AJGA events and advanced to the round of 16 at the Florida Amateur Match Play Championship.  He was the District Champion in 2009 and 2010 and holds the Cypress Bay HS individual record low round with a 66.  During the past year, Rohan has continued learning via informal studies, traveled to India, working on his golf game and tutoring students.

Un Cho will arrive at Harvard from Ancaster Ontario, Canada where he attended Ancaster High School and was the golf team MVP for three seasons.  Un's highlights on the golf course include making it to sectional qualifying for the US Open in 2011 and being ranked in the top ten junior golfers in Ontario as well as numerous top five finishes in regional and national events.  Un has spent the past year working and working on his game.

We give a warm welcome to the incoming freshmen.  We know each and every one will contribute positively to the program.  Given the recent success on the recruiting front, we are optimistic about the future of Harvard Golf.
