Buck Brumlow, Maxwell Ford, and Blake Parkman — all natives of the Peach State — have signed national letters of intent with the Georgia men’s golf team, according to an announcement Monday by Bulldogs head coach Chris Haack.
“We are excited to have Buck, Maxwell, and Blake join our program,” Haack said. “We could not be happier that they all decided to stay in Georgia and compete for the Bulldogs. We have lofty expectations for all of them, but they can handle those expectations. They are talented young golfers who will continue to improve at the college level. They will be great additions both on and off the course, and we look forward to them coming to Athens next year.”
Brumlow is from Cartersville and attends Cartersville High School. He won the 2019 Georgia Four-Ball Championship and qualified for the 2021 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship at Chambers Bay.
