Newell (No. 13, 2011) commits to Tennessee
A.J. Newell told Golfweek she has verbally committed to Tennessee. Newell, ranked No. 13 in the Golfweek Junior Rankings for the class of 2011, has seven top-5 finishes in AJGA events, inluding a win at the 2007 Junior All-Star at PGA National.
Newell took an unofficial visit to Tennessee at the beginning of November, and verbally committed a week later. She also made an unofficial visit to UCF.
The Tampa, Fla., native, who is homeschooled, said she decided on Tennessee because she was looking for a larger school, especially one with “a golf program where I felt I personally could get better.”
