PHILADELPHIA – Saint Joseph’s head golf coach Bob Lynch has announced that Tim Godshalk (Blufftin, S.C./Hilton Head Prep), Connor Garrity (Hollidaysburg, Pa./ Hollidaysburg Area) and Connor Hill (Richmond, Va./Douglas Freeman) have signed National Letters of Intent to attend Saint Joseph’s University next year.
Competing on the International Junior Golf Tour for several years, Godshalk has posted seven top-10 finishes over the past four years. Highlighted by a third place finish at the Collection River Invitational in 2009 and a fifth-place finish at the Sea Pines Invitational in 2010, he also qualified for both the 2010 U.S. Amateur and the 2010 South Carolina Junior Golf Association Junior Championship.
A four-year letterwinner at Hollidaysburg Area, Garrity helped his team claim four-straight PIAA District 6 titles, while being a key member of the PIAA State championship squad as a freshman. Averaging 74.8 strokes-per-round, he has competed in the PGA Junior Series Tour the past three years and posted three top-10 finishes. Posting arguably his best performances as an individual last summer, Garrity tied for seventh at the Pennsylvania State Junior Amateur Championship, finished fourth at the West Penn Golf Association Boys Championship and advanced to the championship round of the C.R. Miller Match Play Invitational. Additionally, Garrity paced the Pennsylvania Golf Association at the 2010 Williamson Cup, finishing 12th overall in the international competition.
One of the top high school golfers in Virginia, Hill was ranked 16th-best in the state this year by the Junior Golf Scoreboard after averaging 75.8 strokes-per-round. A four-year letterwinner at Douglas Freeman, he won medalist honors five times in 2010. Competing as an individual, Hill advanced to the quarterfinals for the 2010 Richmond Golf Association Men’s City Amateur, tied for fifth at the Colonial Junior Golf Tour Dominion Club/Hunting Hawk Tournament and placed seventh at the 2010 Richmond Golf Association Junior Amateur.
Saint Joseph’s lost seniors Patrick Devlin, Tyler Mefford, Jim Ridgway and Josh Webb to graduation this past May.
