DePaul Golf Signs Russell Budd to a National Letter of Intent



CHICAGO DePaul men’s golf coach Betty Kaufmann announced today that Russell Budd has signed a National Letter of Intent for next season. The Toronto, Ontario, native joins John Pavelko next season as freshmen in the DePaul golf program.

“Russell will be an excellent addition to our program,” said Kaufmann. “His golf game continues to grow and get stronger with his experience on the Canadian teams. We are excited to have him.”

Budd is a four-year captain and Team MVP of his high school team while playing in elite tournaments throughout Canada. He won the Ontario Bantams in 2004 and has represented Canada in international tournaments such as US Kids and Optimist. In 2008, he finished sixth at the Ontario Junior and represented Ontario at the Williamson Cup. Budd also placed sixth at the AJGA Lessings Open and is No. 32 in the RCGA Canadian Junior Order of Merit.

Budd joins Pavelko next season at Ruffled Feathers Golf Club for the 2009-10 DePaul golf season.
