Funk (No. 42, 2014) commits to Texas

Taylor Funk, son of touring pro Fred Funk, has given a verbal commitment to play college golf at Texas in 2014.

Funk made unofficial visits to Auburn, Alabama and North Florida before choosing Texas.

He is home-schooled but plays golf for Ponte Vedra (Fla.) High School.

“I chose Texas because I really love the coaches there,” Funk said. “I believe that the University of Texas has the best resources and facilities in college golf.

“I believe Texas is where I can improve my game the most, and I knew the moment I left the unofficial visit at Texas that Texas was where I wanted to be,” Funk added.

Funk was the 2012 St. John’s Player of the Year and first team all-county. He was the Florida High School Athletic Association 2A regional champion. He also won the Future Collegians World Tour at TPC Sawgrass and Inverrary.

Funk’s father, a Maryland graduate who has won eight times on the PGA and Champions tours, coached the men’s golf team at his alma mater from 1982 to 1988.
