Tyler Hawk, Batavia High School senior, will always be remembered as one of Clermont County’s premier high school golfers.
He has earned a position on the Southern Buckeye Conference National Division all-star team all four years of high school and three times he has earned a berth on the all-city squads. He was also a letterman in basketball.
Hawk plans to continue his educational and golf careers at Methodist University in Fayetteville, N.C., where the Monarchs have a very respected links program.
He indicated he will major in areas of the business field with his focus being on professional golf management.
"We're thrilled with everything about the school. It is a perfect fit for him and he'll be able to play golf year 'round," said Tyler's mom.
"We're excited for him," said Tyler's dad. "We're looking for him to have as good a career and success there as he did in high school."
Their son is as appreciative of his parents as they our excited about his future. "I can never thank my parents enough. They have always been very supportive of me," he said.
In a career that has experienced many highlights on the golf courses of the area, the Bulldog standout did manage to whittle down his favorite athletic recollections to a trio of most memorable moments.
"We shot a school (and a possible state) record 137 team total ...I shot a school record five-under 31 that day...the team won the Southern Buckeye tournament all of the four years I was in high school," he said.
Terry Sheehan, Batavia High School athletic director and former Bulldog golf coach, is very impressed with Tyler's work ethic.
Said Sheehan, "No one practices the game of golf more than Tyler. He is very dedicated to his sport."
