Bishops Gate Golf Academy (BGGA) student Dongjin Park signed his National Letter of Intent with University of North Carolina-Charlotte.
The UNC men’s golf head coach Ryan Cabbage enters his eighth year at the helm of the 49ers golf program. Under Cabbage, Charlotte has earned bids into three of the last six NCAA Regionals as a team. The Niners have appeared in 14-straight NCAA Tournaments.
Park, from Seoul, South Korea, has been a student-athlete at BGGA for four years. Over the last two years, he had four top-ten finishes, three top-five finishes and won three tournaments. His low competitive round was 61 and his strength is his ball striking.
He recently won Falcon’s Fire at Rees Jones, qualifying for the Faldo Series Grand Final later this month. Park also won the AJGA Judie Oppenheimer, IJGA Central Florida and IJGT Savannah Harbor earlier this year. He T11 at the Faldo Series U.S. Grand Final in 2017. His previous best finish came at the 2017 EMoney.com/Daniel Berger Junior Championship at T6, and at the Bubba Conlee National Junior at T6.
Park is in the top 25% of his class at Montverde Academy.
“Congratulations Dongjin on signing with UNCC,” said BGGA Senior Coach Nate Dougherty. “We are all proud of your effort, determination and focus on getting better each day. We wish you the best at UNCC and will continue to support you however we can.”
