A native of Carson City, Nev., Singer comes to Columbia following a four-year standout career at Adelphi University.
“I am excited to have Coach Singer become part of our program,” said Columbia head coach Rich Mueller. “His collegiate golf career and academic successes were a natural match for Columbia.”
A two-time All-Northeast-10 selection, Singer’s impressive collegiate career included seven individual top-five finishes. He was invited to the NCAA superregionals each of his four years at Adelphi and became the first player to participate in and win three Northeast-10 team championships. Singer was honored with the Faculty Recognition Award twice in addition to the Presidential Student Athletic Award, which is awarded to two student-athletes who excel both in the classroom and on the playing field.
Singer, who graduated Magna Cum Laude from Adelphi in 2013, earned a B.A degree in psychology and B.S. degree in criminal justice with a minor in sociology.
At Carson High School, Singer won the Northern Regional Zone High School Championship by five strokes and was named the 2009 Northern Nevada All-Region Player of the Year. He recorded the lowest scoring average on his team and was named First-Team All-League and team captain from 2007-09. In 2009, Singer finished second out of 111 players at the 2009 Winter California Junior Tour.
