- Pick joins Tiger men’s golf team July 15, 2014
MITCHELL, S.D. – The Dakota Wesleyan University men’s and women’s golf teams depend on local talent to fill their rosters each year, and head coach Adam Anderson added another local name to the Tiger men’s 2014-15 roster this week.
Russell Pick, a Kimball, S.D., native, will join the DWU golf program this fall, Anderson announced. Pick, who will have freshman eligibility, comes to Dakota Wesleyan from South Dakota State University where he did not participate in golf.
The sports management major was a four-year starter and letter winner for the Kimball Kiote golf team in high school. He was a part of the 2012 regional championship team, and was named his team’s MVP as a junior and senior. Pick recorded a stroke average of 77 as a senior, and participated in three Class B state golf tournaments, where he tied for eighth his junior season.
While in high school, Pick was a member of the honor roll all four years. He also participated on the SDGA Junior Tour from 2010 until 2013.
“Russell is a quality person with an excellent attitude and personality,” Anderson said. “He is an experienced player who is eager to compete and see what he can accomplish in college golf. I am excited to have him join our Tiger golf family.”
Pick, along with fellow South Dakota natives Cameron Huff (Aberdeen) and Ryker Kreutzfeldt (Mitchell) will be freshmen on the Tiger men’s golf team this fall. Ben McNiven, a Merritt, British Columbia, Canada, native, has also signed.
