SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento State head men's golf coach Christopher Hall announced today that Taylor Knoll will join the team after transferring from Nevada. Knoll will have two years of eligibility remaining.
"I'm very excited that Taylor has decided to come to our team," Hall said. "He's going to be a great addition and it's nice to pick up another local player. Coming from a good program, he has the maturity and experience which will help elevate our team's progression next season."
A native of Folsom, Calif., Knoll competed in nine events with the Wolf Pack as a freshman in 2011-12. His best finish came at the Western Athletic Conference Championship where he was 19th and he shot 71 at the Cowboy Classic.
The following season, he ranked third on the team with a stroke average of 74.2 in 11 events. Knoll tied for third at the SCVB Pacific Invitational after totaling 202. That score included a career low of 64.
Knoll redshirted during 2013-14.
While at Folsom High School, Knoll was a first team all-Delta River League selection all four years. He helped the Bulldogs win the league title in 2010, making Folsom the first public school to do so in 20 years. His parents, Rick and Kelli both played collegiate golf at San Jose State as did his uncles, Jim Knoll and Alan Swank.
