Liberty Head Men's Golf Coach Jeff Thomas has announced the signing of Jonathan Yaun to a national letter of intent for the 2018-19 academic year.
"Coach Nelson and I are excited to have Jonathan at Liberty," said Thomas. "Jonathan is the perfect fit, he loves Liberty and is a strong Christian young man who has a heart for people. He has proven himself inside and outside of the classroom."
"Jonathan has the ability to shoot low scores and has won multiple junior tournaments. We are confident that Jonathan can help Liberty continue to compete at the national level and win championships."
Yaun is a homeschool student through the GradePower Learning Center in Ocoee, Fla. He hails from Orlando, Fla. and plays high school golf at Lake Minneola High School in Minneola, Fla.
Yaun has been ranked as high as No. 34 in Golfweek's 2018 graduating class listing. He captured the 2017 Florida High School State Athletic Association 3A state boy's golf title, carding a 2-under par 142 (69-73) to win the event by four strokes.
Yaun also captured an individual title at the 2016 Florida Junior Tour at Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club and posted runner-up finishes at 2016 Florida Junior Tour events at Lemon Bay Golf Club and Ocala National Golf Club.
The Flames finished the fall golf season ranked No. 70 in the final Golfstat rankings of the 2017 calendar year. Liberty's first event of the spring schedule will be a return trip to the Sea Best Invitational, Feb. 5-6, at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
