Men’s Golf Signs Twin Brothers Maximilian and Alexander Herrmann
ATLANTA – Georgia State men’s golf coach Joe Inman has announced the signing of identical twin brothers Maximilian and Alexander Herrmann each to a National Letter of Intent to start playing for the Panthers next fall. The highly-touted German brothers have an impressive resume playing throughout Europe.
“Maximilian and Alexander are going to make an immediate impact in our line-up,” head coach Joe Inman said. “Each has put together an impressive junior resume and I think will be able to make an easy adjustment to golf in the States. I look forward to being able to work with them when they arrive for the fall season.”
Alexander is currently ranked No. 167 in the European Golf Rankings. Last month he finished 17th at the Italian Amateur at Circolo Golf Is Molas shooting 77-71-69-78. Last fall he earned an eighth place finish at the Austrian Amateur Championship and a seventh place finish at the Belgian Juniors, opening with a 69.
Last summer he tied for 33rd at the prestigious British Boys Championship at Royal Liverpool, qualifying for match play. He also finished 14th at the Dutch Junior Open with a second-round 69 and 32nd at the German Boys Championship, opening with a 71.
He has compiled a 73.33 scoring average among tournaments as a part of the European Golf Ranking system.
Maximilian is currently ranked No. 225 in the European Golf Rankings. He finished 23rd at the Italian Amateur last month, opening with a 72. Last summer he finished second at the Belgian Juniors, shooting 70-71-75-73 and 17th at the Austrian Amateur with back-to-back 69s in the second- and third-rounds.
At the German Boys last summer he tied for 11th. In seven European Golf Ranking events, he has compiled a 74.48 scoring average.
The Herrmann brothers join Hayden Poole who signed in the early signing during the fall as three new men’s golfers for 2014-15. Inman expects to add one more to the team later this summer.
Georgia State, currently ranked No. 46 in the nation, will return to the course on Monday for the Sun Belt Conference Championship.
