Nov. 14, 2007
Stanford, Calif. - The Stanford men's golf program has signed a pair of talented high school seniors announced Head Coach Conrad Ray today. David Chung and Wilson Bowen will join the Cardinal for the 2008-09 season.
Chung is one of the most prized players in his class, as the Fayetteville, NC native is the nation's No. 4 recruit according to Golfweek and the nation's No. 6 recruit according to the American Junior Golf Association and Junior Golf Scoreboard. Considered the best high school player in North Carolina, Chung was named to the 2007 Rolex Junior All-America First Team. He was the runner-up to Stanford's Sihwan Kim in the 2004 USGA Junior Amateur at the Olympic Club and the 2006 Champion of the AJGA Lessing's Classic. This year, he has registered multiple top-five finishes on the AJGA Tour.
Bowen is a senior at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Ill. and is ranked No. 5 in Illinois by Junior Golf Scoreboard. He finished fourth in 2006 and 2007 at the Illinois State High School Golf Championship and captured titles at the 2007 AJGA Cleveland Junior Championship and the 2007 FCWT Plantation Inn Open. He was named to the 2006-2007 FCWT and AJGA Academic All-America First Team and has recorded multiple top-10 finishes on the 2007 AJGA Tour.
'David and Wilson represent two high quality, talented student-athletes,' said Ray. 'Each has proven to be the best in his area, and I think that their transition to Stanford will be smooth based on their past successes. We're excited to welcome them to the Stanford program.'
The pair will begin at Stanford in the fall of 2008, and help the Cardinal in its quest for the 2009 NCAA title.
