TU bolsters signing class with New Zealand’s Hodge
Tulsa, Oklahoma – University of Tulsa Women’s Golf Coach Emilee Klein-Gille announced today that Brydie Hodge from Levin, New Zealand, has signed a national letter-of-intent to continue her education and golf career with the Golden Hurricane.
Hodge was the No. 1 player and captain of the Manawatu-Wanganui Senior Women’s and Junior Girls Teams at the age of 17 in 2014. She was the winner of the New Zealand Under-19 Girls Championship, Horowhenua Women’s Open, Otaki Women’s Open and the Wellington Strokeplay. Hodge captured the Manawatu-Wanganui Schools Golf Championship in 2014 with a round of three-under par 69, and was selected to play for the Under-18 Team at the Australian Junior Girls Amateur. She also won the Challenge Cup in 2014 by shooting a course record 65 at the Marton Golf Club.
In 2013, Hodge was the medalist at six events, including the Horowhenua Women’s Open, Manawatu Junior Girls PGA and captured a 14-shot win at the Wanganui Women’s Open. She carded a low round of 69 at the Women’s Interprovincial and attended the New Zealand National Training Camp.
“We are so excited to have Brydie join our program. She is an extremely talented player who has proven herself over and over again by winning tournaments and shooting some very low scores,” said Klein-Gille. “Some of Brydie’s strengths include her technique, short game and strong mental game. I believe she will be a huge asset to our golf team and will be instrumental in our quest to become a top national contender.”
