My name is Javier Nguyen, I’m a 19 years old golfer, and I’m 187cm (6’2) tall. I studied at Hills College/Hills golf academy for three years, I graduated from Hills in 2018 and for the past 3 years I’ve been working on my golf game that is good enough for college level competitions and I now believe it is good enough to compete. I have played in many tournaments’ overseas which has given me the experience and knowledge of travel and how tournaments operate overseas. I was the house captain during school so I believe I would be able to leave a good impact on the college team I will represent.

Additional sporting info
I have played in many tournaments in many countries as a junior, China, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia, and Vietnam, these tournaments have given me the travel experience and how tournaments in other countries operate.
What makes you different?
I studied and stayed at the Hills Golf Academy / Hills College for 3 years so I'm used to living away from home and I competed in events overseas as a Junior in China, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia, and Vietnam which most other student athletes will not get that opportunity at such a young age.
Why do you want to compete in college?
Since I started golf at Hills College, I’ve found it inspiring that my friends and other athletes around the world go to University in America to get a degree or try and do their best in their desired sport and compete against other colleges, and just to do that in the United States I’ve always wanted to experience University life in the U.S. and to compete at a college level.
I would just love to study and get a degree and at the same time experience what the U.S. is like and play college level golf.
Anything else we should know?
During my final year of school, I was the House Captain of my house team and I was also the treasurer of the interact club at Hills College.
