Graduating in Spring 2021
From Rosemont, PA
This week we would like to feature Hub member John Bradbeer in the Athlete Spotlight! John is from Rosemont, PA, and he is currently in his senior year of high school. John is fortunate to be playing high school golf this fall amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and he is off to a blistering start. In his first four rounds in 9-hole matches, he has posted rounds of 38, 37, 37, and 33. He is a co-captain of the golf team this year at Harriton High School, and has enjoyed success this past summer in tournament play.
Earlier this month, Bradbeer finished T-2 at the HJGT New Jersey Fall Junior Open, firing rounds of 75-79. In October, he fired a 72 at Heritage Hills in York on the Philadelphia Section PGA Junior Tour. Earlier in July, he finished T-5 at the AJGA Junior Golf Hub Championship with rounds of 71, 72, and 75. His scoring average is currently 78.04 in the race for the 2020 Hub Cup.
Recently, John Bradbeer was featured in his local paper. Check it out here!
According to PA Prep Live, Bradbeer was the 11th-best player in the Central League in 2019 through high school. His coach, Brian Dobak, has said, “John is passionate about the game, and is always playing in a tournament, which is a coaches’ dream. One of his greatest attributes is his willingness to help others on the team – he’s not a ‘lone ranger.’ He has a lot of knowledge and swing competency which he likes to share with others; and he brings a unique brand of humor, which is good for everybody.”
During the pandemic shutdown this year, John was able to work hard on the technical side of his game, taking videos of his swing and putting stroke for instant feedback. He has also worked hard on his physical performance, dedicating time to work out before playing again. His favorite club is his 60 degree wedge, favorite movie is Tin Cup, and he is a Philadelphia Eagles fan.
Junior Golf Hub wishes John the best for his senior year of high school and beyond.
Enjoy Your Journey!
