GW Golf Practice (9/26/14)
Bailey, a native of Walnut Creek, recently completed a standout four-year varsity career at Monte Vista High School in Danville. He served as team captain as a junior and senior and was part of a Mustangs team that competed in four straight North Coast Section Tournament of Champions events and the CIF NorCal Championship as a freshman in 2011.
"I am excited to play for George Washington University under Coach Scheinost because it is such an incredible academic environment and athletic opportunity," said Bailey.
This past February, Bailey qualified for the Championship Bracket of the 232-player San Francisco City Championship in which he advanced to the round of 32 before being knocked out by Walker Huddy, currently a sophomore at California who played for the No. 1-ranked Golden Bears team in 2012-13.
"We are excited to have Zack join our program. I've seen him fight through some very difficult conditions and still find a way to post a good score, which will translate well to the college game," said Coach Scheinost. "He is also a natural putter and when he can get it going has a chance to make everything."
Before arriving in Foggy Bottom in the fall, Bailey will look to build upon an impressive list of performances from the summer of 2013, when he won the Round Hill Junior Club Championship (even-par 72) and finished third at the Salinas Amateur Championship (70-71--141, -3), the Yolo County Amateur (68-65--133, -1) and the Future Collegians World Tour event at Sandpiper (74-72--146, +2). He also won the 2012 Diablo Valley Junior Championship (71, -1) and went undefeated during the 2013 Bay Cities Match Play League schedule.
Bailey also competed in a 2014 U.S. Open Local Qualifying event, firing a 2-over 74 at Fort Washington Country Club in Fresno, California, four shots outside of a Regional alternate spot.
