GW Golf Signs Stephen Brown to NLI
A native of Los Angeles, California to join the team in 2017-2018
WASHINGTON – The George Washington golf team has signed Stephen Brown to a National Letter of Intent, head coach Chuck Scheinost announced Friday.
Brown, a native of Los Angeles, California, helped lead his high school team to its third consecutive CIF Southern Section Central Division Title in May and is currently playing at a +0.8 handicap.
In seven tournaments over the past summer, Brown recorded four top-20 finishes including a third place result at the IMG Junior World Qualifier in which he shot a season low tournament round of 68 (-4). Brown opened his fall season in September at the El Dorado Fall Challenge, where he won with a score of 73.
The previous season, Brown was the 2015 Mission League Champion and finished the 2013-2014 season with seven top-20 finishes in his first year of the Toyota Tour Cup.
"We are very excited to have Stephen join our program,” said Scheinost. “He is a very bright individual who puts in the work to achieve the goals he sets. He has solid length off the tee and shows great touch around the greens. The combination of the two gives him a real advantage and I expect that we will only continue to see him elevate his game during the next four years."
In addition to his ability on the golf course, Brown is an excellent student and holds a 3.95 GPA. He has also been an active member of his community and has assisted with the course operations each year for the Veritas Junior World Tournament.
“When I first traveled to D.C. in October of 2015, I knew GW was where I wanted to go to school,” said Brown. “After a few meetings with Coach Scheinost, I felt really comfortable with his coaching philosophy and the plan for taking the program to the next level. Being able to attend school in our nation’s capital creates one of the most unique college and golf experiences, while providing me countless opportunities well beyond college. I am honored and excited to join the team next fall!”
