IMG Academy golf program business manager, Mark Rummings, recently earned a distinguished honor from the course that helped shape him as a golfer.
The North Oxford Golf Club bestowed upon Rummings a "life membership" due to his distinguished junior career.
From the Oxford Mail:
Mark Rummings, who is in the top 300 professionals in America, has been given life membership of North Oxford GC, where he first learned to play.
As a junior, the 31-year-old won the club championship four times and represented them in the Oxfordshire Foursomes League and won the Berks, Bucks & Oxon's Penfold Trophy.
Rummings, who is business manager of the IMG-David Leadbetter Golf Academy in Florida, turned pro ten years ago.
He has played two US PGA Tour events.
Rummings won the North Florida Club PGA Championship, which qualified him for the Club PGA National Championship this June.
Former North Oxford professional and current manager Bob Harris, who coached Rummings, said: "He is a great ambassador for the club. We pride ourselves on nurturing young golfers."
Rummings still excels as a golfer, as he's one of the top professionals in Florida. Most recently, Rummings won the North Florida PGA PNC Section Championship in fall 2009.
