NLI signee Maximilian Oelfke
April 22, 2014
FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State men’s golf head coach Christian Newton announced Tuesday afternoon that Maximilian Oelfke has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete for the Rams beginning in the 2014-15 season.
Oelfke, a native of Heidelberg, Germany, comes to Colorado State with a wealth of experience as a member of the German U18 National team, 2011 and 2012, and as a current member of the St. Leon-Rot Golf Club Team, known as a developing ground for some of Germany’s top junior golfers.
“I feel pleased with the addition of Max to our 2014 recruiting class,” said Newton. “He is a very talented player having competed all over the world and has been exposed to fantastic training overall. His experience playing for the German National Team and St. Leon-Rot Golf Club Team will serve him well.”
Oelfke, a 6-2, 160-pound product, chose Colorado State after considering Minnesota, San Diego and Colorado. He has posted several impressive finishes over the last three years while competing all over Europe. After finishing 15th at the 2011 German Boys Open, he placed 12th in the event in 2012 and rose to a seventh-place finish in the 2013 event, and placed fifth at the 2013 German National Open. In 2011 he posted a second-place showing at the French Boys Championship, and in 2012 qualified for the match play rounds at the British Boys Championship before falling in the second round of the event.
“During the recruiting process Max told me he wanted to study in a good business school, make A’s and play on the PGA Tour,” added Newton. “That is exactly the kind of young man we are looking for. I was obviously sold. I am very excited for Max to get started at CSU this fall I see him competing for a starting spot immediately.”
Oelfke is the third prep player to sign with the Rams for the 2014-15 season, joining fall NLI signees Kyler Dunkel (Larkspur, Colo./Douglas County High School) and Colton Yates (Scottsdale, Ariz./Notre Dame High School).
