NCAA D1 Championship 2024

We are proud to announce Hiroshi Tai winning the NCAA D1 Championship this past weekend at Carlsbad, CA. Hiroshi attended the Bishops Gate Golf Academy, now the IJGA, and graduated in Class of 2020. He then did two years of military service in his home country of Singapore, delaying his start at Georgia Tech until 2022. Last year, in his Freshman year, GT made it to the final of the teams and Hiroshi had an epic battle with the winner of the NCAA that year, Fred Biondi, losing on the 18th hole. But this year, as a Sophomore, Hiroshi held off strong challenges to get his victory. Looking back at a video Hiroshi made when 15 years old he stated that his goals were to play golf at a D1 college with strong academics, goals he has achieved at Georgia Tech (view the video “The Original You” on our website!)

Also proud of good showings by fellow alums University of Florida Jack Turner (T23) and University of Arizona Filip Jakubcik (T31), both of whom were the low player on their teams.
