Team Canada’s Peyton Callens commits to Texas A&M UniversityWritten by Golf Canada
Another Team Canada golfer is heading to Texas A&M University. Langton, Ont., native Peyton Callens—a rookie on the Development Squad—has made a verbal commitment to join the Aggies in the fall of 2018.
London, Ont., resident Maddie Szeryk, a member of the Team Canada National Squad, just wrapped up her third year at Texas A&M where she established a new school record with a season stroke average of 71.24 and was named a First-Team All-American.
Callens, 17, considered offers from Kent State, and Arizona State – the home of another Team Canada National Squad member, Kimberley B. C.’s Jared Du Toit.
As a member of Team Ontario in 2016, Callens was a force to be reckoned with on the junior championship circuit. He won the Ontario Junior Boys Championship, the Future Links driven by Acura Prairie Championship, and the Golf Ontario Junior Boys Spring classic.
He also finished 2nd at the Ontario Juvenile Championship and recorded a T3 finish at the 2016 Canadian Junior Boys Championship.
A member of Delhi Golf and Country Club, in Delhi, Ont., Callens currently attends Holy Trinity High School in Simcoe, Ont.
