EUGENE – The University of Oregon men’s golf team welcomed one of the nation's top recruits - Thomas Lim - as the first member of its 2013-14 freshman class on Wednesday’s initial day of National Letter of Intent signing.
The Moorpark, Calif., native is a first-team American Junior Golfers Association All-American, and ranked top 10 in his prep senior class in the AJGA Polo (seventh) and Golfweek boys (eighth) national rankings.
Among his top results the past year, he won the AJGA Junior at Robinson Ranch in August (69-66-69-204) and also took second in the AJGA-Winn Grips Heather Far Classic at the Longbow Golf Club in April (71-66-66-203).
“Thomas is a tremendous addition,” Oregon head coach Casey Martin said. “He’s an all-around great recruit – a wonderful student, great competitor and person. He had a breakout spring and summer season, and we’re really excited to have him join our program.”
The Ducks come off a busy fall campaign that saw the team tabbed No. 25 in the Nike Golf Coaches Preseason Poll.
Oregon posted featured five top-10 individual finishes from sophomore Rak Cho (sixth-tie, Kikkor Husky Invitational), freshman Sulman Raza (eighth-tie, Pac-12 Preview; 10th-tie, St. Mary's Invitational) and seniors Robbie Ziegler (ninth-tie, Alister MacKenzie Invitational) and Tyler Parker (10th-tie, St. Mary's Invitational).
UO players combined for 18 rounds of par or better and tallies for each player follow - Raza (6), Cho (4), Ziegler (3), Parker (2), freshman Brandon McIver (2) and sophomore Jonathan Woo (1).
Looking ahead, the Ducks resume action next term in the Amer Ari Invitational, Wed.-Fri., Feb. 6-8 in Waikoloa, Hawai’i.
