Golf, like any other sport, requires hours upon hours of practice.
Marc Casullo, a student of Villanova College in King City, has not only worked on his game with the coaches and players but spends countless hours throughout the summer as a member of the Summit Golf Club in Richmond Hill.
Casullo is in his senior year at Villanova and he is the reason the school has had a golf team for the past three years.
When Casullo entered Villanova in 2009 his reputation as a golfer had already preceded him. He quickly made his way onto the varsity team and despite his small stature it was clear when you watched him play that he belonged with the big boys.
As well as practicing, Casullo has been travelling to the United States and across Canada to compete in various high-level golf tournaments.
Casullo was one of the youngest competitors invited to play in the Canadian Men's Amateur Championship this summer. In early August he travelled to Victoria, British Columbia to compete against golfers from all over the world. He posted an impressive four-day score of 300, which put him tied for 65th overall out of a field of over 320 golfers, with the majority of them not even making the cut.
Casullo is hoping to parlay his tournament experience from the summer in CISAA and provincial tournaments this fall. He is attempting to qualify and compete in his 3rd straight OFSAA Provincial Golf Championship, a feat that has yet to be accomplished by any Villanova student. At the 2012 Provincial tournament in St. Catherines, Casullo battled some extremely cold and windy conditions to place in a tie for 6th out of 120 golfers from across the province. He was the top CISAA competitor and with a score of 76 on day 2, which put him tied for the 3rd best round of the tournament.
With his senior year currently under way, Casullo is looking forward to graduating from Villanova and experiencing what is next for him in the world of golf.
He is currently exploring his options for post-secondary education and fully anticipates being a member of the golf team where ever he ends up. He has been in contact with golf coaches at Seton Hall, and Villanova University in Philadelphia.
The staff and students at Villanova College would like to wish Casullo good luck in the upcoming golf and school year.
