Fritz Commits to Pacific Weeks After Coronado Team State Title

There are times when the sun, moon and stars all align and everything falls into place perfectly in someone’s future. That just might be the case with Ian Fritz deciding to play college golf at University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA. Fritz, a Coronado High product, was over-the-top when he talked about his future. —by Bill Bowman, www.LasVegasGolfInsider.com

“I really like their coach (John Cook), the golf facility and the courses they get to play,” said Fritz, who helped lead Coronado to the 2022 Nevada State 5A high school championship. “And the academics at the school are great, too. Also, it’s only about an hour flight back to Vegas so that’s not too bad,.”

Fritz is unsure about his major because he wants to be sure about his path.

“I don’t want to decide too quickly,” he said. “I’ll just find out what I like early on and go from there when I do decide on a major.”

And then there’s the golf. Fritz said it’s great the sport has helped him further his education and he puts the efforts of the SNJGA right at the top.

“The SNJGA got me into golf early and they helped me out a lot along the way,” he said. “They were a big stepping stone to getting into more tournaments when I got a little older and they have certainly helped me further my golf career.”

He knows that golf will be with him every step of the way through life.

“I’ve always planned on taking golf past college,” he said of possibly pursuing a pro career. “But no matter what happens after college, golf will always be with me.”

He said he knows college is a big step and it’s one he is ready to embrace.

“One thing I really want to do is play every match as a freshman,” he said. “I want to get into the lineup as soon as possible. I’ve prepared my whole life to get to this point and I’m confident in my ability to make the transition to the next point as smooth as possible. I know I’ll have to adapt quickly to become one of the guys who can play every week but I’m ready for that challenge.”

To that end, he knows where he wants to concentrate on when it comes to improving his golf game.

“I need to improve getting off the tee,” he said. “That’s the most important part of the game as far as I’m concerned. If you’re hitting from the middle of the fairway it’s a lot easier to play golf rather than trying to find your golf ball somewhere off the fairway.”
