Mike Ryan loves the New York Yankees and the New York Giants, but the rest of his spare time seems to be dominated by the sport of golf.
“I chose Cabrini for several reasons but golf was definitely a contributing factor,” Ryan, senior finance major, said.
When Ryan was 14 years old he fell in love with golf.
“I was just eager to play another sport I had never played before,” Ryan said. “I immediately fell in love with golf.”
On the weekends Ryan plays for another golf league aside from Cabrini. “The Golf Mission” takes up most of his weekend time and due to his efforts he was the club champion in 2009.
“The good thing about golf is it’s a fall and spring sport so I have time to improve for the spring,” Ryan said.
Ryan has had several other memorable performances this year. He tied for fifth place with a 9-over par round of 79 at the Muhlenberg College Invitational on Oct. 18. Ryan led his team to place fourth out of 11 teams at the Lehigh Country Club where the tournament was held.
On Oct. 13 Ryan led the Cavs to a fourth place finish in the Philadelphia University Classic. Ryan celebrated a team-best 10th place.
“We have a really young team this year, but we definitely have a lot of potential,” Ryan said.
“I think the highlight this year is just getting to know all the new kids on the team and the new coach, Adam Pifer.”
