IOWA CITY, IA – University of Iowa Assistant Golf Coach Adam Kaufman has announced two signings to a National Letter of Intent.
Vince India, a Deerfield, IL, native, was a four-year MVP of his team at Deerfield High School. During the spring of 2005, India posted two second place finishes and one first place finish on the Illinois Junior Golf Tour. Through competition in the AJGA, he tied for fourth at the Midwest Junior Players Championship and tied for sixth at the Boyne Highlands Championship. He finished the season 63rd in the AJGA rankings, making him the highest nationally-ranked player to choose Iowa in the last 10 years. India chose Iowa over offers from Michigan State, Illinois and Notre Dame.
James Reiss of Aldeburgh, England, graduated from Woodbridge High School. He is a three-time winner of the Aldeburgh Junior Club Championship. Reiss also went on to win the Men’s Club Championship in 2005 and the Foursomes Championship at the age of 16. He was the winner of the first round of the Nick Faldo U21 Series and will play the second round this month for a place in Nick Faldo’s U21 Grand Final. Reiss chose Iowa over Indiana.
“I am very excited with the direction our program is heading,” said Coach Kaufman. “I see many good things happening next year. Adding two talented student-athletes like Vince and James to the roster will make next fall very competitive amongst the team members. This will hopefully have a positive effect on our tournament play.”
