Patrick Hallisey of Wethersfield, Conn., has given a verbal commitment to play college golf at Boston College in 2014.
The Kingwood Oxford School junior chose Boston College because “of the amazing education it offers and the location.”
“I’ll be able to stay close to my friends and family throughout the school year.”
For most of his life, Hallisey played ice hockey, but about 2 1/2 years ago, he realized he loved golf more and switched.
“I’m really proud of the fact that I haven’t been playing golf that long, but I’ve improved in such a short period of time,” Hallisey said.
Hallisey was runner-up at the 2012 Stan Trojanowski Northern Junior and placed sixth at the AJGA Philadelphia Junior. He is the fifth-ranked junior in Connecticut.
