Cameron Champ, a member of the 2012 Junior Ryder Cup team, has committed to Texas A&M for the fall of 2014. Champ calls Texas A&M “the total package.” He said he made unofficial visits to a number of other universities.
“Texas A&M and its alumni have made major commitments to the golf program, both in academic support, practice and playing facilities,” said Champ, of Sacramento, Calif. “Having access to the Traditions Club is a real bonus for me, coming from California. I will have the opportunity to learn how to play golf in entirely different conditions. Coach (J.T.) Higgins and his staff are one of the best in the country and have proven they are sincere about developing outstanding golfers as well as individuals.”
Champ is No. 10 overall in Golfweek’s Junior Rankings. He earned his Junior Ryder Cup spot courtesy of a runner-up finish at the Junior PGA Championship at the beginning of August. He also advanced to the Round of 32 at the U.S. Junior Amateur.
