"Anthony is a tremendous talent and hard-working young man,” said Osborne.  “The fact that he has played our home course, Red Tail Run, during his high school career will be a huge plus for him and us. Anthony has a summer tournament schedule lined up to get him great experience for the next level. He has the potential to come in and compete right away. Very excited for him to be here in the fall.”
