Several Coloradans, Class of 2023, have recently announced their choices for college golf, including two who are headed for Division I teams.
Brady Duval of Cherry Hills Village will play for and attend school at Coastal Carolina, located just northwest of Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Duval, who has won two significant junior tournaments in the last five months, announced his commitment on Instagram, and his dad, David Duval, tweeted it out on Saturday.
