Davidson Day sophomore golfer Kyle Fuller has been selected to play in the Dormie Cup, Oct. 15-16, in West End, N.C.

The competition pairs some of the top 24 junior golfers in the country in a two-day, Ryder Cup-style event. Fuller, the son of Micah and Sandra Fuller of Huntersville, is trying to raise $1,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project as part of his participation in the tournament. For details, click here.

Recently, Fuller shot a 1-under 71 in the American Junior Golf Association's Webb Simpson Tournament in Winston-Salem. He placed fourth out of 85, earning him an AJGA tour exemption in 2012.

His new playing partner and instructor is Nationwide tour player Corey Nagy, a four-time All-American and Atlantic-10 Player of the Year at UNC Charlotte.

Fuller led Davidson Day to its first Southern Piedmont Athletic Association championship and a fifth-place finish in the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association's 1A tournament last year. He finished third in the state and earned all-state honors.
