NOTRE DAME, Ind. – University of Notre Dame men's golf head coach John Handrigan added two key pieces to the future of the program on Thursday, welcoming in Palmer Jackson and Patrick Kelly to the ND Family.
"Our program has dramatically improved over the last year and this highly ranked recruiting class of Palmer Jackson and Patrick Kelly will continue our progression to be a top ranked collegiate golf program," Handrigan said. "Both players will make a significant impact to Notre Dame Golf and will be great assets to our University academically and athletically. I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to coach Patrick and Palmer for four years."
Jackson ranks No. 20 in the Class of 2019 by Golfweek. The Murrysville, Pennsylvania, native attends Franklin Regional High School where he is a three-time Section Champion, the 2018 Western Regional Champion, the 2018 Pennsylvania Interscholastic State Champion and a two-time WPGA Junior Player of the Year (2017, 2018).
In addition, Jackson is a two-time AJGA TransAmerica Scholastic Honorable Mention recipient.
"Palmer is one of the highest ranked recruits in the country that had an exceptional summer playing high level golf," Handrigan said. "Palmer is an impressive player, loves to compete and most importantly, has strong character and will be a great teammate."
