Bulldogs Welcome Two Golfers for Class of 2022

Bulldogs Welcome Two Golfers for Class of 2022

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – As the Yale men's golf is set to tee off its season with the F.A. Borsodi Student Championship in 26 days, the Bulldogs will add a pair of newcomers to the roster who comprise the two-member class of 2022. First-years Darren Lin and Kevin Wu replace a trio of graduated seniors and will look to sustain the Bulldogs' quest for back-to-back Ivy League Championships after winning the Ancient Eight crown in 2018. 

Yale's two rookies both boast ties to the Pacific Ocean with Lin coming from Chino Hills, Calif., and Wu hailing from Shanghai, China. The duo has accumulated a swath of successes at the junior and amateur levels and brings the Bulldogs' total roster count to 11 golfers. More info about the 2022 recruiting class can be found below.
