Bermuda golfer Roberts recruited by Queens University

Promising Bermuda golfer Ryan Roberts will be playing his college golf at Queens University in Charlotte next autumn.

Roberts, the 2008 national junior champion, had several colleges interested in recruiting him but said Queens offered the best academic programme.

“I was very fortunate to have college coaches recruiting me. I turned down an offer of early signing with one college as I was not sure it was the right place for me,” said Roberts. “In the end I went with the one that offered the best academically. Queens is the only university that offers Professional Golf Management as a minor allowing me to major in business.”

The 17-year-old has won all of the Bermuda Junior Golf Association's major tournaments multiple times and represented Bermuda in overseas tournaments since he was eight-years-old.

Roberts, a former Saltus student, now attends the Hank Haney International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head, South Carolina, where he receives daily golf instruction.
