"I am extremely excited with the incoming class for fall of 2011. What I thought to be a bit of a rebuilding year, as we are losing 4 of our top 5 players to graduation, we are able to replace with very skilled and talented golfers. The current group has set the bar high, but with 3 players returning and the infusion of new recruits, I challenge and expect the 2011 team to be ready to compete at the highest level" says Coach Campbell. Four players (Zach Mick, Chris Holmes, and Chase Numbers) all signed letters of intent to play golf at Cornerstone beginning in the Fall of 2011.
Zach comes to Cornerstone with a knowledge of our golf program and bringing college golf experience with him. Zach's brother Josh has been here 4 yrs so Zach has been able to be around the program and get comfortable. He has played a semester of college golf so he will be ready to get right at it. Zach has great skills and leadership abilities and was the state division 3 state champion last spring in Michigan. I look forward to another 3 yrs with a Mick on are team.
Chris comes to us from Macomb Lutheran North HS. A high school team mate to CU players Kevin Yee and Zach Mick, I expect Chris to fit right in with the team. Chris plays basketball in high school as well, and another hard working dedicated athlete. Chris's scores have continued to drop each season as he continually works on his game. I expect Chris to be an impact player throughout his career here at Cornerstone.
Chase is a transfer from Glen Oaks CC and played his high school golf at Coldwater. Coming off ankle surgery, we are hoping he will have all 4 years to play here at Cornerstone. Chase is always working on his game, and never satisfied where he is. He is always striving to get better which will continue to push everyone else to improve their game.
"The golf program here at Cornerstone University has improved in every category over the last 5 yrs.We have won several invitational's and competed strong in many NCAA DI tournaments with some of the best players in the country. Many of our players have had very successful amateur careers and a few are even trying to make it on the professional mini-tour ranks as well. As the Head Coach of this program, I have been blessed to be able to coach and watch many talented athletes who have grown to become great men on and off the course here at Cornerstone. I look forward to the challenge of continuing that trend."
