John Oda of Honolulu has committed to play college golf at UNLV in 2014. Oda is a junior at Moanalua High School.
He made no other unofficial visits to schools, but he knew UNLV was the right choice for him.
“My attraction to UNLV was its premier golf program, and its distinguished leadership between coach Dwaine Knight and assistant coach JC Deacon,” Oda said.
In 2012, Oda won the Hawaii State Amateur Championship and the David Ishii Hawaii School State Championship. He placed fifth at the Callaway Junior World Championships and made it to the Round of 64 at the U.S. Junior Amateur. Oda played in the PGA Tour’s Sony Open.
