Grubnich and Fogg Sign with IU
Nov. 11, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind - Head Coach Mike Mayer inked a pair of highly-touted recruits this week, receiving National Letters of Intent from Nicholas Grubnich (Crown Point, Ind.) and Andrew Fogg (Greenwood, Ind.). Both future Hoosiers are ranked in the national top-40 for the class of 2011.
"We are thrilled to have Nick and Andrew join our Hoosier family, " said Coach Mayer. "They will be great additions to our program and both bring an outstanding athletics and academic package with them. I expect both of them to make an immediate impact on our program."
Grubnich comes to IU from Crown Point High School. Over the summer, he won the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Columbus Junior with rounds of 65-75-70--210. Grubnich also finished 16th in the prestigious AJGA Ping Invitational this fall. He is slated to compete in the AJGA Polo Championship at PGA National later this fall down in West Palm Beach, Fla. Nick, ranked 55th overall nationally in the Polo Junior Golf Rankings, is the son of Pete and Susan Grubnich.
"Nick is an outstanding junior golfer with a wealth of national experience," said Coach Mayer. "One of the many things I like about Nick is his ability to shoot low numbers. He had an outstanding win this summer in the AJGA event in Columbus, and I foresee many more championships for Nick as a Hoosier in the future."
Fogg is a product of Roncalli High School and ranked 65th overall in the Polo National Junior Golf Rankings. He recently won the Hoosier Junior Championship at Otter Creek Golf Club down in Columbus, Ind., with scores of 65-72--137. Fogg strung together three straight top-five finishes in AJGA Junior tournaments this summer, including a runner-up showing at the AJGA Cleveland Junior Open. After qualifying for the 2010 United States Junior Amateur Championship, he advanced to the second round of match play. He, too, will join Grubnich in the playing field of the AJGA Polo Championship later this fall. Andrew is the son of Brian and Kim Fogg, and he has a younger sister, Samantha.
"Andrew had an incredible 2010 summer which propelled him to the top of junior golf in this country," said Coach Mayer. "His play at the USGA Junior Amateur in Michigan was solid as he knocked out one of the top juniors in the country in his opening match. His recent win at the Hoosier Junior Championship showed that he is not only continuing to improve, but also his ability to go low."
The current Hoosier Men's Golf Team concluded the fall season with back-to-back team titles at The Firestone Invitational and Kiawah Island Intercollegiate. The tournament crowns marked the 15th and 16th team championships for IU under the watchful eye of Coach Mayer.
