Connor Barker is from Auckland (New Zealand) and has signed with Winthrop University on a golf scholarship starting August 2019.
Connor attended a USA golf showcase we held in January 2018. After hearing about the college system and what Platform Sports Management had to offer, he decided to come on board. Connor wanted to be in a program where he can play golf all year round and work with a great coach.
Winthrop University is in Rock Hill (South Carolina) and has one of the most amazing campuses in the state. Winthrop University competes within the NCAA Division I Big South Conference which includes schools in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The athletic facilities are fantastic, and it is a short drive away from Charlotte. The weather is dry and warm which is great for golfers like Connor.
We are very excited to watch Connor compete in August 2019! Go Eagles!
