MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College golf team and head coach Jimmy Wilson are pleased to announce the signing of Josh Klipstein and David Sullivan for the 2010-11 season. 

“Both David and Josh have impressive junior golf credentials,” said Wilson. “We look forward to having them here in the fall and wouldn’t be surprised if they were both in the starting lineup at the beginning of the season.” 

Klipstein graduates from Norcross High School and played golf under Steve Sims. He finished in first place at the Southeastern Junior Golf Tour 2010 Douglas Open, fourth place at the SJGT Tournament of Champions and added four top 10's in Junior Golf Scoreboard nationally ranked events.

Sullivan is currently playing at Etowah High School under Bob Westbrook. He finished first at the 2010 Georgia State Golf Association Sectional Challenge Match and second low amateur at the Berkley Hills Championship. Sullivan was named to the 2009 and 2010 Cherokee All-County team and the Hardaway Invitational All-Tournament team. He plans to major in business.
