Wayne State transfer Brendan Seys will join the Nevada men's golf team for the 2020-21 season. He has one season of eligibility remaining with the Wolf Pack.
“We are thrilled to add Brendan to our program for next season,” head coach Jacob Wilner said in a news release “He brings years of college experience, has proven he is a winner and plays at a very high level. He makes us an extremely deep program and we are so excited to get back to work in late August.”
Seys spent four seasons at Wayne State and earned a bachelor’s degree in finance. With the COVID-19 pandemic shortening the 2019-20 campaign, Seys was granted an extra year of eligibility and transferred to Nevada. He posted a career scoring average of 73.14 strokes per round at Division II Wayne State. Last season, Seys had a single-season career-low scoring average of 70.57 in 14 rounds of play. He was top five in all six events he participated in.
At Wayne State, Seys was the 2019-20 GLIAC Player of the Year. He won three Division II PING Midwest All-Region awards, a Division II PING second-team All-American honor, was a three-time first team and one-time second team All-GLIAC selection and was named the GLIAC Freshman of the Year in 2016-17. Seys won five individual tournaments over the 48 events he competed in and added 21 top-10 finishes.
A 2016 graduate of Ursuline College Chatham High in Kent, Ontario, Canada, Seys was a two-time district champion and posted a career scoring average of 71.6. He tied for 18th at the High School Provincial Championships in 2014 and tied for 24th out of 155 participants at the Ontario Junior Championships. Seys was a third-team Future Collegians World Tour All-American selection and a four-time All-Provincial Team Ontario honoree.
Seys is the fifth signee in Wilner’s 2020 signing class and will join Jack Steck, Tom Patterson, Sean Minor and Brendan MacDougall as the newest members of the Wolf Pack this fall.
