WHY VCU?
“Big, urban university with a great reputation, both academically and athletically. Coach Ball coached Jens Fahbring from Sollentuna Golfklubb, whom I have known and looked up to for a long time. He is now a European Tour Professional. I am certain I can become just as good, or even better together with Coach Ball at VCU.”
