Harry Ward signed up with Platform back at the beginning of 2020. It was almost a different world then before Covid. Although the future at that point of international travel was very uncertain, Harry was determined to still head over to the US to compete. At the end of 2021, Harry put pen to paper to sign with IUPUI and will be heading there this fall to begin his journey. Harry is from Wellington, New Zealand and has been working with PGA Coach Kevin Smith to help him achieve his goals and bring home some championships for IUPUI.
IUPUI is a public research university located in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. It is a unique school due to being a collaboration school between Indiana University and Purdue University, hence the long name. This means that students are able to graduate from IUPUI with either a degree from Indiana or Purdue, giving students the opportunity to get the best of both of these fantastic academic programs.
We are super excited that Harry is joining such an amazing academic school. He will also be joining a very competitive golf program that competes in the Horizon League. They are hoping to replicate the success of the women’s team who won the conference back in 2018 and win some silverware of their own. We are sure with the addition of Harry that they will be able to achieve that and much more!
