Thothong (No. 46, 2014) commits to Houston
Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Megan Thothong of Plano, Texas, verbally committed to play for Houston, which will begin competing in 2014.
Thothong, No. 46 in the Class of 2014 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, also visited North Texas and Houston Baptist before committing to Houston.
Thothong cited the Houston campus, facilities, academics and coaches as reasons for choosing the young program. But one of the strongest reasons was the chance to play on the first team.
“We get to set the path as some of the first players in university history, and not many people can say that,” Thothong said in an email.
A member of the girls golf team at Plano West Senior High School, Thothong won the JGC Lone Star Junior and had three other top-10 finishes in AJGA events.
