ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan women's golf head coach Jan Dowling announced today (Thursday, Nov. 17) a second early signee as Sarah Tan (Singapore) joins the Wolverines after completing her National Letter of Intent for the 2017-18 season.
"Sarah is an exciting late addition to our 2017 recruiting class," said Dowling. "She is the perfect fit. She's a hard worker, who wants to excel in both the classroom and on the golf course. She is really looking forward to the structure and environment of a team atmosphere. Sarah is determined to develop and contribute in a big way as she becomes acclimated to the U.S. collegiate system. We are very excited to see how she progresses and cannot wait to have her start in the fall."
A two-year member of the Singapore National Program, she highlighted her 2016 play winning the Singapore National Ranking Game (74-72-72/218) and tying for fifth at the Singapore Ladies Golf Association Amateur (76-72-72/220). She tied for ninth at the AJGA Reno/Tahoe Junior (76-83-78/237) and helped the Raffle School to a second-place finish at the National Inter-school Golf Championship after closing individually as the runner-up.
During her 2015 season, she won the HSBC Youth Golf Challenge - 3rd leg (70-75-69/214) as well as the 4th leg (70-72-79/221) and was the runner-up at the Singapore National Ranking Game (74-77/151). She was fourth in the USGA Girls Junior Qualifier at the Las Vegas National Golf Club (76) and won two AJGA qualifiers -- Ryan Moore Junior Championship (71) and the ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior (70).
U-M loses just one senior as Grace Choi closes her historic four-year career and will look to graduate with a degree in economics.
