Nike Golf has announced that Dylan Frittelli has joined the roster of talented Nike Golf athletes. Frittelli made his professional debut this weekend at the BMW International in Cologne, Germany, finishing Tied 33rd.

Frittelli spent the last four years representing the University of Texas and finished his college career ranked third in the individual college rankings.

Born in Pretoria, South Africa, Frittelli won the 2008 South African Boys Championship and was ranked number one on both the South African Amateur rankings and South African Junior Rankings. His college career was nothing short of spectacular, concluding at the NCAA Championships where he sunk a 30ft birdie putt to solidify the win for the Texas Longhorns at Riviera Country Club two weeks ago.

Through his excellent senior year Frittelli earned 1st Team All American status and won the 2012 Byron Nelson Award, given to the collegiate golfer with the best playing, academic and community service record.

Frittelli expressed, “I enjoyed developing my talent at the University of Texas and feel I am ready to take the next step as a professional golfer. Turning pro and joining the Nike Golf team is a dream come true and I look forward to developing my career with Nike. ”

Mark Thaxton, Global Director of Sports Marketing Operations for Nike Golf, stated, “We are delighted to welcome Dylan into the Nike Golf family.  He led an impressive amateur career and we look forward to helping him succeed as a professional.”
