Cannon School senior and Cornelius resident Grant de Gorter, center, signed a letter of intent on April 17 to study and play golf at University of South Carolina Upstate. De Gorter has been on Cannon’s varsity golf team for four seasons and led the team his junior year with the low 18 hole round score of 69. Last summer, he won the Dogwood State Junior Qualifier, came in second at the PGA Tour Superstore Junior Masters in Georgia and won the Tarheel Youth Golf Association River Run Tournament. He recently completed a senior project that raised more than $4,000 to benefit Cannon’s golf team. De Gorter aspires to become an Academic All-American in college and win an NCAA championship.
