WASHINGTON - Pierre Tillement (Suresnes, France/Lycee Jacques Audiberti) has transferred to the GW golf program and will be eligible to compete immediately for the Colonials in 2014-15, Head Coach Chuck Scheinost announced on Thursday.
Tillement was a member of the golf team at Texas Tech the previous two seasons from 2012-14.

Is his native France, Tillement won the 2013 Grand Prix Prieuré Classic and has competed in four professional Alps Tour events as an amateur, including a trio of top-25 finishes at the International Open of Mirabelle d'Or from 2011-13 (2011 - 20th/126, 2012 - 24th/126, 2013 - 21st/118).
