ETSU men's golf signee Ben Enoch dies in car accident

Thursday, April 30, 2009

                JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 30, 2009) - ETSU men's golf signee Ben Enoch (Cornwall, England) passed away Thursday morning as result of a automobile accident on the A40 in Whitchurch, Herefordshire. The 18-year-old was the brother of current ETSU sophomore Rhys Enoch.

 

            The younger Enoch - much like his older brother - was one of the top golfing prospects in Great Britain, and had a bright future in the American college game. He had a shot at making this year's Walker Cup team and was runner-up in the 2008 Welsh Amateur Championship. He was also the youngest member of the Welsh Men's Team, while also playing for Great Britain and Ireland Boys Team. He was captain of the Welsh Team at the 2008 World Amateur Championship.

 

"All of us associated with the ETSU Golf Team, and in the entire Athletics Program, are devastated by Ben's death this morning," said ETSU head coach Fred Warren. "He not only was an internationally ranked golfer with an unlimited future in the game, he was an outstanding young man and student. We were looking forward to Ben being on our team next year as much as he was looking forward to joining our team, and playing alongside his older brother, Rhys. My heart goes out to Ben's parents and Rhys, and all who knew this terrific young man. This is a sad day in the world of golf and Ben will be sorely missed by all of us who knew him."
