Men's Golf Adds Five to Incoming ClassMay 9, 2014
BREVARD, N.C.- Brevard College men’s golf coach David Nelson is pleased to announce Calum McAndrew, Declan Addison, Trym Falch, Florian Peyssonneaux, and Craig Stephen have committed to play golf for the Tornados next season.
"This class should be another strong class that will contribute to our future success,” said Nelson. “All these incoming freshman have significant experience playing junior golf in their respective countries, and are capable of breaking into the top five immediately."
McAndrew will join the Tornados from Fife, Scotland, where he golfed under PGA golf professional Mark Stevenson. McAndrew was an ISST and SCIS School Golf Champion from 2009-2012, and represented Fife in Europa Cup matches against the United States and Canada. McAndrew won the Severiano Ballesteros Trophy for the U18 division at age 13. In the classroom, he was named to the High Effort List from 2007-2010.
Addison comes to Brevard from Peterhead, Scotland and Mintlaw Academy, where he golfed under Lee Vannet. Addison was a two-time Club Champion as a junior, and an Off the Tee Trophy winner with Peterhead.
Falch hails from Sandnes, Norway, where he golfed under Jan Egil Norland at Wang Toppidrett. Falch was a two-time Club Champion and also notched a victory on Region Tour Rogaland. He also played soccer, ice hockey, and was an Alpine skier.
A native of Marcoux, France, Peyssonneaux golfed under Johan Dahan at Lycee Du Sacre Coeur. There he was named “Best Hope of Marcoux for Sports”, and also earned the Fleche de Bronze in skiing.
Stephen will join the Tornados from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and Aboyne Academy. Stephen was the 2013 Aboyne Club Champion, and also played soccer.
"We will be a very young team again, as our five returning players are all part of the freshman class that was nationally ranked this year,” Nelson said. “Three of those players (Strehl, Lundgren, Vega) played significant tournament time this year."
In November of last season, Brevard’s freshmen class was ranked No. 1 in all of Division II according to GolfStat.
