Reno, NV – Golf is an integral part of the IT Avalon culture. Founders John and Carisa Zink regularly sponsor and host golf tournaments that support their local community, and offer opportunities to have fun with their clients, friends and staff. It is with great excitement that they are now sponsoring UNR Graduate and Rising Professional Golfer Griffin Cooper. Both founders will be traveling to cheer on Griffin throughout 2022.
Griffin Cooper remembers being only two years old with a golf club in his hands. Raised in Yerington, Nevada, Griffin started competing in golf tournaments when he was seven years old. The rising star then attended Fresno State for two years and played for the school before making his home at University of Reno, Nevada. Griffin graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Finance/Economics in Fall 2021.
Griffin is gearing up for the following local tournaments in 2022:
- U.S. Open Local Qualifying (May 17 at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course)
- The Reno Open (June 7-9 at Toiyabe Golf Course)
- Barracuda Championship (July 14-17 at Old Greenwood Golf Course)
- Nevada Open (Date TBD at CasaBlanca Golf Course)
Griffin is preparing for this season’s tournaments by practicing or playing every morning and afternoon. His passion for the sport is evident and contagious. When asked what he loves most about golf Griffin replied: “…it keeps you accountable…whatever you put in you get out.” In closing, Griffin describes golf as the ultimate “gentleman’s game”. Stay tuned as IT Avalon reports on Griffin’s 2022 run for the PGA tour!
