“Braxton is a very sharp young man who has put up some really competitive numbers as a Canadian junior golfer and member of his college team. He clearly knows how to win and consistently keeps himself in the mix in competitions, which is the biggest thing that led to our interest in him. With a competitive WAGR (World Amateur Golf Ranking), he has positioned himself to be a very competitive player in the Mid-American Conference. We are really excited to follow his spring season and get him on campus this fall.”
