Sam is currently a sophomore at Purdue. A lifelong golfer, Sam hopes to bring his love of the game and competitive experience to bear on the Indiana club golf region throughout 2022.
The Indiana Region started in the spring of 2015. The region includes all of the Indiana NCCGA teams who previously competed against Illinois teams in the Great Lakes Region. Many teams in Great Lakes region have qualified for Nationals and continues to be a very competitive region. In the fall of 2017, the IU Hoosiers made an appearance at the National Championship at the Paiute Golf Resort in Las Vegas. The Hoosiers followed that up with another Champ appearance in St. Louis finishing with a top 5 finish. Notre Dame represented the Indiana region this past fall in Myrtle Beach and had an impressive showing with a T6 finish. Andrew Stineman led the way for the Irish shooting a 2 day total of 148 (+4). It was a big spring for Notre Dame as the won both regional tournaments and had their A and B teams qualify for Nationals. The A team came up just short of the National Championship as they fell to Clemson by 4 shots. Andrew Stineman finished off his NCCGA career with an impressive performance to win Medalist honors shooting 68-75. Notre Dame kept the dominance of this region going as they won both tournaments and made a return trip to Nationals. Purdue looks to dethrone the champs this upcoming spring.
