Less than a week since the IU women’s golf team announced the signing of three golfers for next season, the men’s team announced signings of their own.
High school seniors Mitchell Davis and Harry Reynolds will join the IU Class of 2022 while looking to add to their decorated golf careers thus far.
“Assistant Coach Corey Ziedonis did an outstanding job evaluating and recruiting both Mitchell and Harry,” IU coach Mike Mayer said in an IU athletics release. “They both will become outstanding Hoosiers both athletically and academically. We are thrilled to welcome them into our Indiana men’s golf family.”
Davis, who is a native of Valparaiso, Indiana, is coming off a season in which he served as team captain at Chesterton High School. Davis was the 2017 Boys State Junior Champion and a medalist at the tournament in the year prior.
During the 2015-16 season Davis helped lead his team to a sectional title, and finished his high school career with an average round score of 73.2 — just beating out his fellow recruit’s average score of 73.8.
Reynolds will come to Indiana from Christ Church Episcopal School in Greenville, South Carolina. Reynolds’s 2017 season included four top-10 finishes, along with a tied-for-4th finish at the South Carolina Junior Championship.
Along with the individual resume Reynolds has built, he comes from a school that will look to win its sixth consecutive state title in the spring.
Both Davis and Reynolds will look to bring success to the men’s program which had just one top-five finish in the 2017 fall season — that coming at the Windon Memorial in Evanston, Illinois. However, Mayer expects much more than on-the-course impacts from the recruits.
“Mitchell and Harry are two of the more passionate young men that we have ever recruited,” Mayer said. “They will bring that passion to our program as well an extremely high level of intensity. They both have outstanding resumes and both fully understand what it takes to play at this level.”
