Lincoln College is part of Region 24, which is comprised of nine Junior Colleges that have a golf program in Southern Illinois. Region 24 has produced two out of the last three NJCAA National Champions and is one of the toughest Junior College Regions to play.

“I thought Aaron did a great job of finishing out his round and that is what great golfers do – finish!”, Head Coach Kirk Whiteman said.  “We have a really young team with four freshman and a transfer who played only half the season last year, so I am looking for continued improvement from everyone.” continued Whiteman.

“As for Aaron, I think his best golf days are in front of him because of his passion and work ethic for success. This is going to be a fun year for him.”
