CHARLOTTESVILLE – University of Virginia men’s head golf coach Mike Moraghan has announced the signing of Greg Carlin of Kensington, Md., to a national letter of intent with Virginia.
Carlin, who attends Georgetown Prep in Potomac, Md., was named to the AJGA HP Scholastic Junior All-America Team in 2003. He will become the fourth Georgetown Prep alumnus to compete for Virginia under Moraghan. Tripp Shreves, Mike Mitchell and current team co-captain Kevin O’Connell all graduated from Georgetown Prep before attending UVa.
Carlin’s outstanding junior golf career is highlighted by two trips to the USGA Junior Championship. He reached the first round of match play in the U.S. Junior in 2002, and in 2003 he reached the round of 32. He has won a number of junior tournaments in the Mid-Atlantic area, including the 2002 Bobby Gorin Tournament and the 2002 Frank Emmett Schoolboy Tournament. He also recorded top-five finishes in two nationally-recognized tournaments in 2002, the Bobby Chapman in Spartanburg, S.C., and the AJGA ClubCorp at The Homestead.
In 2003, Carlin recorded top-10 finishes at the Scott Robertson Memorial Tournament and the AJGA ClubCorp Tournament. His second round score of 65 at the ClubCorp was the low round of the tournament. Carlin also finished among the top-10 amateurs at the Maryland Open and was first alternate at U.S. Amateur qualifying in Maryland.
