Brunswick, Ga. – College of Coastal Georgia men's golf coach Mike Cook is proud to announce the addition of three more players to the Mariners' team for the upcoming 2017-18 campaign.
Kidd is transferring to Coastal Georgia after spending one season at Colorado State. A rising sophomore, Kidd also spent one season at South Florida as a redshirt after playing at Crystal River High in Florida.
Kidd was a three-time regional and district individual champion during his prep career. Kidd won the Central Florida Classic in 2016 and finished fifth in this year's Florida Amateur Championship.
At Colorado State, he played in four events and posted a 73.5 stroke average.
"Kyle was a highly-ranked junior golfer out of Florida," Cook said. "He brings strong collegiate and amateur experience to the team. He seems to be a very consistent player. I'm very glad to have signed him."
Johnson is also transferring to Coastal Georgia after playing the last two years at Western Carolina, where he played in the top position in the lineup this past year. The St. Simons Island native and former Glynn Academy standout recently finished third at the Golden Isles Invitational hosted by the Brunswick Country Club.
While playing two seasons for the Catamounts, Johnson competed in 21 events and recorded three top-5 finishes and also three top-10 finishes. He won the 2017 Frontier Secure Intercollegiate.
Johnson finished his sophomore campaign with a 73.85 stroke average. His best collegiate score is a 66.
"I've known Mark David for years and have personally worked with him at our junior camps and clinics at Sea Island," Cook said. "He's very strong and long off the tee. We are extremely happy to get him. He has tons of NCAA Division I experience and has been very successful."
Gamborg comes to Coastal Georgia from Norway, where he competed for Norwegian College of Elite Sports from 2013-16. He finished 2016 with a 75.1 stroke average.
Gamborg has competed in several top-flight tournaments including Curro South Africa Juniors International and the Norwegian Junior Championship.
"We are very pleased with signing him to play at Coastal Georgia," Cook said. "He has a very good swing and has valuable experience competing all over the world including South Africa, Europe and the United States."
Coastal Georgia, which won back-to-back NAIA national titles in 2014 and 2015, will begin its 2017 fall schedule in September.
