The Next Big Thing

UnCommon Ground - The Next Big Thing

This summer, a score card from a very important golf game hung in the kitchen of Brynn FitzGerald’s home in Pepper Pike, Ohio. Her older brother Ryan had put it there as proof that he had actually (finally) beaten little sis at the game she’s been playing since she was 7 years old. Looks like he just caught her on an off-day.

In her short time at Denison, this first-year biology major and golfer is causing some major headaches for her other competitors. In her Denison debut at the Fall Invitational held at the Granville Golf Course, FitzGerald ’16 posted a school record, shooting a 75, just four strokes over par. That performance, coupled with a 77 on day two, earned her the honor of being named the North Coast Athletic Conference Golfer of the Week. Just four weeks later, she earned the title again after a first-place finish at the Wooster Fall Invitational, a two-day tournament in which FitzGerald shot 157 (79-78).

Now that the season is over, though, FitzGerald is looking to schedule a rematch with one of her fiercest competitors. Her big brother better hit the links for some practice.
