Coming off of a strong fall season which saw Notre Dame claim two team and three individual titles, Irish men's golf head coach Jim Kubinski strengthened his program for the future with the addition of two National Letter of Intent signees during the fall signing period.
Davis Chatfield (Attleboro, Mass. / Bishop Feehan HS) and Alex Jamieson (Duxbury, Mass. / Duxbury HS) will be members of the Irish squad in the fall of 2017. Having both of them hail from Massachusetts is not lost on their Springfield-native head coach.
"Given our history of recruiting players from across the country and other continents, having our 2017 signees call the same state home is very unique," Kubinski said. "In fact, as a Massachusetts native myself, Alex and Davis are the first two players from my home state to join our program.
"We're excited to welcome both Alex and Davis into our Notre Dame golf family. Each player has achieved high-level success on the golf course and in the classroom."
Chatfield has twice claimed the Rhode Island amateur championship. He was the 2015 runner up at both the Massachusetts and New England amateur championships. He won the 2016 World Series of Junior Golf and placed 17th in the Junior PGA Championship. He is a two-time men's Attleboro Open champion. Chatfield was named the Boston Globe's Division II Player of the Year in 2015 and also earned a spot on the Boston Herald's all star team.
