Georgia Tech Men's Golf Inks Thomas Jordan to National Letter of Intent

Nov. 26, 2001

ATLANTA — The Georgia Tech men’s golf team has signed Thomas Jordan of Sea Island, Ga., to a National Letter of Intent, Yellow Jacket head coach Bruce Heppler announced on Monday.

Jordan, who played his prep golf at Glynn Academy, was a member of the school’s two-time Georgia 5A state championship teams and also has had a successful junior career entering his senior season at Glynn.

“We truly felt that if you combine Thomas’ athletic and academic skills with the quality of his family, we had the best student athlete in golf in the state of Georgia,” said Heppler.

Jordan had a successful summer on the junior golf circuit in 2001, as he captured a pair of titles including the Kiawah Islands Invitational on the 2001 Future Collegians World Tour. Later on, he finished first at the Jimmy Self High School Invitational.

He also recorded a pair of top-10 finishes in a pair of prestigious tournaments, finishing eighth at the Southern Junior Championship and a year ago, finishing fifth at the AJGA Tampa Bay Tournament.

“We are very happy to add Thomas to our program here at Tech,” said Heppler. “He is certainly in the mold of the type of player that we have had success with.”
