Dave Wilson ’75 made his mark on the soccer field, as a Staples and Dartmouth College captain.
His son Cameron is earning raves on the golf course. Now he’s headed across country, to join the famed Stanford University golf team.
The 17-year-old Rowayton resident — a senior at St. Luke’s School — signed a national letter of intent recently with the NCAA Division I power. Dave, his mother, school officials, coaches, teammates and friends looked on.
Stanford has won 8 national championships — the most recent in 2007. Its most famous golf alum is Tiger Woods.
Last year Cameron became the youngest winner in the 107-year history of the Met Amateur Championship. He reached the round of 32 in the USGA Amateur Championship, and was a quarterfinalist at the USGA Junior Amateur. He is ranked 7th nationally for junior golf in the Class of 2010, 13th overall nationally.
