Constance inks with North GreenvilleTuscola senior joins former THS golfer in Tigerville
When Christian Constance was a child he followed his father, Rick, an accomplished golfer and a top-notch golf coach, around on the links.
By osmosis, he absorbed the game on a deep level.
Last week, the talented Tuscola senior signed a national letter-of-intent to golf at North Greenville University in Tigerville, South Carolina.
“I am confident of my decision to attend North Greenville,” said Christian Constance, who plans to major in sports management. “It’s exciting to think you have an opportunity to continue to golf competitively at the next level after high school. Plus, North Greenville has a Christian oriented atmosphere and top academic programs.”
But Constance, who tied for first at the Tom Fazio Junior Masters in 2010, chose to sign with North Greenville.
“Beyond being a perfect fit, I chose North Greenville University because I want to be a golf professional, playing or teaching, when I graduate,” said Constance. “NG uses the Cherokee Valley Golf Course as its home course, which is a challenging course and has a top notch practice facility.
“Then there is assistant coach (Brad) Caldwell, who was a former Tuscola, North Greenville golfer and a member of the 2006 state championship team. Having an assistant coach and mentor who is from your high school is another positive reasons to attend North Greenville.
One of Constance’s best highlights in his golf career was shooting 71 and being medalist at the North Carolina Junior Amateur Qualifying Tournament in 2012.
He has shot a 59 on the Lake Junaluska Golf Course, which is his home course, and he has two hole-in-ones. In addition, he was the 2013 Western North Carolina Junior Golf Association’ s Player of the Year.
