PELLA-Former Boyden-Hull standout golfer, Eric Visscher, is set to begin his college golf career at Central College in Pella.
Visscher finished his final season as a Comet in 2016 with first-team All-Siouxland Conference honors after earning a nine-hole average of 41.64 with 39 as his lowest nine-hole round.
Visscher joins a Central College team that is run under first-year coach, Jon Olson, and is headlined by Nash Bucher of Huxley-Ballard High School. Bucher was last season’s Most Valuable Freshman for Central College and is the team’s top returner in average with 78.4 strokes per nine holes.
