Coach Heppler on Tran: “Aidan is a very talented golfer, and brilliant. His school work is off the charts. His family lived on the East Coast for a while, and he reached out to us. He asked us a lot of questions and was engaged in the conversation as much as his parents. He was knowledgeable about our program. His results were pretty good at a young age, and he played phenomenally well when we first saw him play in California. His golf swing is like Tiger Woods. We made him an offer right then, and he stuck to his commitment even after other big programs got in on him. He’s as prepared academically as anyone we’ve ever recruited. He was invited to five AJGA events this summer, and he turned all of them down because he had two siblings still playing, and he gave up his own golf to get them to tournaments. He’s very unselfish. He’s gotten bigger and stronger, and he’s got good rhythm in his swing. He’ll have a good career here.”
