Hometown Hero: Patrick Welch

This week’s Cardi’s Hometown Sports Hero is Classical’s Patrick Welch.

The junior took home the R.I.G.A Junior Amateur title for a 3rd time this Summer and finished 2nd at the Junior P.G.A Championship, becoming the first Rhode Islander to earn a spot on the U.S. Team for the Junior Ryder Cup. He also finished 2nd at the New England Junior Amateur.

A three sport athlete, Welch will play in three more events this golf season, before turning his attention to basketball where he’s hoping to have a big impact on the Purple’s varsity team.
