BOULDER — University of Colorado men's golf coach Roy Edwards
has added to his 2022 recruiting class, as he has signed Robby Keilch
from Newport Beach, Calif., to a letter-of-intent.
As a senior at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, a year ago last spring he led his team to the 2021 Trinity League Championship and CIF Division 1 title. He took the "gap" year off between high school and college but competed in several amateur events, and with some very impressive results.
"The extra year provided by taking a gap year has afforded me extra time to truly evaluate what I wanted for my next step in my golf career and educational focus," Keilch said. "After evaluating many schools and their educational opportunities, I decided on CU for several reasons.
"CU is a top-notch university with an excellent school of business, which will be my area of focus," he said. "The highly competitive schedule played by CU will afford me the opportunity to compete against some of the best college players in the country on a regular basis. I believe the playing and practice facilities rival the best programs in the country and along with a highly talented roster, I am confident that Coach Edwards and Assistant Coach (Derek) Tolan will bring out the best of us as we pursue both conference and national success."
"We're really excited to add Robby to the '22 class and to our team starting this fall," Edwards said. "He's shot some of the lowest rounds in Southern California junior golf of any player in recent memory, and did so some very good courses. He used the gap year to really take advantage of it in a positive way and we feel really fortunate to add him to the class."
Last November, Edwards signed Hunter Swanson
, a senior at Denver's Northfield High School and Ty Holbrook
, a senior at Granbury (Texas) High School, both of whom have extensive prep and amateur resumes.
(His last name is pronounced "kelch" … the i is silent.)
