KINGSTON, R.I. - Head coach Gregg Burke has announced that Jordan Brajcich will join the Rams for the upcoming season. The junior transfer spent the first two years of his career at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Wash.
"Jordan is a terrific young man with even better old-fashioned values," head coach Gregg Burke said. "As a golfer, he is still very new to the game but is a great athlete. He was ranked among the top-10 players in Division III last fall, before he had a medical issue. He will have to work hard to reach his potential, but he has all the physical tools and the golf game to start here immediately. He is just getting back to his swing and game, so his play over the summer will help determine where he's at this coming fall."
