Campus Insider Podcast/UF's Bank Vongvanij

January 28, 2011

The spring season is only days away and to help kick-off the second half of the 2010-11 campaign, I'm joined by Florida's Arnond (Bank) Vongvanij. The Gators senior is coming off an impressive fall showing, where he finished second at the Olympia Fields/Illini Classic, T-5 at the Jerry Pate Intercollegiate and won the Isleworth Invitational. His 69.67 stroke average helped him finished atop the Golfstat Cup ranking this fall. Suffice it to say if he keeps up this strong play when Florida opens up at the Jacksonville Invitational on Monday, his name will be mentioned for several national awards as the spring semester proceeds.

During the Podcast, we talk about such recognition (he says he hasn't thought about anything like that just yet) along with what clicked for him in the fall and what it was like to make the transition to college after being a blue-chip junior recruit.
