Hooton (No. 41, 2012) commits to Harvard

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Courtney Hooton has verbally committed to play college golf at Harvard in the fall of 2012. Hooton, of Del Mar, Calif., also made official visits to Yale, Princeton and Penn.

Hooton felt Harvard was the perfect fit because of her future teammates and coach and the campus.

“It has been my dream to play for Harvard for as long as I can remember,” Hooton said. “I first visited the coach with my sisters when I was 9 years old.”

Hooton played in her 12th straight Callaway Junior World Championship this summer, and her second U.S. Women’s Amateur. She won the Rochester Junior Championship for her second career AJGA title.
