Wildcats senior golfer Grant Mohesky, a three-year member of the Wildcats Varsity Golf Team, signed a letter of intent Thursday (April 15) to play golf at the next level at the University of Arkansas at Monticello.
Mohesky is the son of Mike and Neva Mohesky.
Mohesky said he met the coach of the Boll Weevils late last year and had a chance to talk with him. He was invited for a visit, was given a campus tour, got a chance to meet the team and even played a few holes with them.
Mohesky said it just felt like a good fit for him. He said the golf coach seemed amazed at Mohesky’s driving distance off the tee. Mohesky said that is one of the real strengths of his golf game.
He said his putting and short game are pretty good but he acknowledged that in golf there is always room for improvement.
He said Monticello is in a pretty part of Arkansas. He said it reminded him of Sulphur Springs. The campus is about a 4 hour drive from Sulphur Springs.
Mohesky said UAM has a good golf program. He said they have finished in the top five of every tournament they have entered this season. Mohesky said getting a university golf offer is a dream come true. Mohesky plans to work on a degree in criminal justice with emphasis in forensic science.
Mohesky’s Wildcats Coach Jeremy DeLorge said he has seen growth in Mohesky’s game over the past two years adding he has put in the work and effort to improve. Coach DeLorge said Mohesky did a good solid job reaching his decision.
Coach DeLorge said Mohesky was a great kid and a great student.
