It might take four years, but one young pup already has his sights set on playing for the Georgia Bulldogs.

According to a report from the Winston-Salem Journal, 14-year-old Zach Brown from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, who hasn’t even played high school golf yet, recently committed to play his collegiate golf at the University of Georgia.

The young star, who has reportedly won nearly 100 tournaments in his life, took an unofficial visit to the campus in Athens, Georgia late last week and loved the atmosphere.

“My dad and I got here on Wednesday and then met with the coaches on Thursday,” Brown said to John Dell of the Journal. “I loved everything about it from the campus to the coaches to the atmosphere at the football game.”

Though he made the decision this week, he will not be able to officially commit until his junior year of high school when he can sign a national letter of intent. Until then, he begins his career as a high school golfer this spring.
