LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - Siena Men's Golf Head Coach Tom Wronowski has announced the addition of Michael Christifulli to the Saints. The Paradise Valley, Ariz. native has returned his National Letter of Intent and will begin competition for the Saints this fall.
"Getting Mike should mean a huge boost for our program in the coming years," said Wronowski. "We expect him to compete for one of the top positions his freshman year and are excited to have him as a part of the program."
Christifulli, who attended Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, has enjoyed numerous successes in highly competitive tournaments. He won the International Junior Golf Tour's PURE Grips Shootout at Troon North Golf Club in May of 2013, shooting rounds of 75 and 77 respectively.
Christifulli placed second at the American Junior Golf Association's Boys and Girls Championship and tied for second at the Future Collegians World Tour's Junior Golf Tournament at Omni Tucson National, shooting rounds of 74 and 69 respectively. His lowest competitive round is 68 (-4).
Christifulli has previously competed twice in the prestigious AJGA Winn Gripp Heather Farr Classic and finished third at the Ping Jr. Series Shootout at McCormick Ranch in 2013.
Christifulli joins a Siena Men's Golf program which returns eight student athletes from last year's squad which finished sixth at the MAAC Championships.
