GOLF 707: SSU’S short, significant golf history

When Jarin Todd graduated from Woodinville High in Washington, he wasn’t sure where he would attend college.
Because he hadn’t competed in many major junior tournaments, he was not on a lot of recruiters’ radar “so I wasn’t highly recruited.”
Sonoma State golf coach Val Verhunce may not have been overwhelmed with Todd’s size, but he was impressed with his attitude, ability and potential when he was contacted by Todd.
