Women's Golf Inks North Carolina Standout All-State Honoree Taelor Rubin Set To Join Program
Nov. 11, 2010
OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss women’s golf team bolstered its future as Taelor Rubin of Raleigh, N.C., signed a national letter of intent to join the program beginning in the fall of 2011, head coach Michele Drinkard announced Thursday.
Rubin, who earned first team All-State honors in 2009, qualified for the U.S. Girls Junior Championships two years in a row and qualified for the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship.
“Taelor is such a gift to find in recruiting, and we are excited to have her join our Ole Miss family,” Drinkard said. “She has the fire in her to be the best, and that is what attracted me to her game. She works with two good friends of mine, college teammate Todd Anderson (2010 PGA Teacher of the Year) and Mike Shannon at Sea Island. Todd has really helped her to have better understanding of her swing mechanics and her game, and Mike is helping her to improve her putting technique.”
Rubin, who has played on the varsity men’s golf team since eighth grade at Cary Academy, also won the Twin State Girls Championship.
“The most critical time for a junior player is after they have made their college decision and what they do with their time to be prepared for college golf,” Drinkard added. “I look for the players that make a commitment and want to step up a level during that time period, and Taelor is doing just that.”
Sea Island is also where Future’s Tour player and former Rebel All-American Dori Carter trained as a junior player and still does, with instructor Gale Peterson.
