The Rogers State men's golf program and coach Steve Brown have announced the signing of Elliot-Han Montérémal to the 2020-21 class.
Montérémal comes to Rogers State as a freshman from Montélimar, France, where he was a member of the golf club La Valdaine as an amateur, playing in the fourth Division in France.
"Elliot is an extremely talented international player who has competed in some of the biggest junior tournaments in Europe," Brown said. "I have spoken to Elliot regularly in the past year, and he is anxious to join the Hillcats, and we are excited to have him on our team.”
At the 2019 French Tour Qualifying School in March, Montérémal finished 21st overall in the 84-golfer field but finished as the third best amateur. He also holds recent top-20 finishes at the Grand Prix des Landes (Hossegor) and the Biarritz Cup. Montérémal holds an average score of 72.08 as recognized by the European Golf Rankings.
"The first time I saw Elliot's recruiting video I knew he had a swing that could compete," Brown said. "His tournament results have proven that he can play with the best amateurs out there. His talent and personality will fit in nicely with our program."
Away from competition, Montérémal has also served his local community, working with local youth as part of the AS de la Valdaine.
Montérémal graduated from Centre National d'Etudes à Distance and College Alain Borne. He will pursue a degree in sports management from Rogers State.
He is the son of Erick and Myungsin and is the brother of Charles-Lim and Gaïa, who are also competitive golfers.
Montérémal is one of six signees for the men's golf program heading into the 2020-21 season.
