Duo Joins Dores

Chase Nevins and Rowan Sullivan sign with Vanderbilt


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Vanderbilt men’s golf program got stronger and deeper Wednesday when head coach Scott Limbaugh announced the addition of Chase Nevins and Rowan Sullivan.

“It’s an exciting day as we welcome two more outstanding student-athletes to our golf program and Vanderbilt community,” Limbaugh said. “Both of these guys represent the type of character, work ethic and care level that we want Vandy golf to be about. They come from great families that will be help us extend our Vandy golf culture. We want young people that want to come in wanting to compete and willing to get a little uncomfortable because they understand the rewards can be great.

“We are committed to continuing to compete for championships and it takes a different mindset to want to be part of being truly excellent in everything you do. Once again, coach (Gator) Todd did an outstanding job helping us identify these guys and we look forward to getting them on campus.”

Nevins, from Great Falls, Virginia, is a four-time American Junior Golf Association champion, a 2021 Rolex Junior All-American and was named to the Washington Post’s 2021 All-Met team. At Langley High School, Nevins has helped the Saxons to six straight team state championship and finished second individually at the 2021 event.

Nevins won the Keith Mitchell Junior Championship in July with a 4-under-par 212. He’s ranked the No. 3 golfer in the state of Virginia.

“Chase is a proven winner and a player that we believe will thrive in our program,” Limbaugh said. “We believe he’s a great fit into our culture and will continue to evolve in this environment.”

Sullivan, from Charleston, South Carolina, was the 2021 South Carolina Junior Amateur champion and 2021 South Carolina Junior Player of the Year. Earlier this year Sullivan won the Class 3A state champion 

In April, Sullivan won the Southern Cross at Palmetto Golf Club. He’s the No. 2-ranked player in the Palmetto State.

“Rowan is a powerful player and really good driver of the ball,” Limbaugh said. “He’s done a great job working towards this moment both on the course and with his academics.  He’s really excited for this opportunity.”

Nevins and Sullivan are slated to join the program in 2023.
