Meet Zayne Hilderbrand! Zayne is a rising senior at Gainesville High School and an avid competitive golfer. He plays for the Gainesville High boys golf team and later in June he will be competing in a Georgia juniors qualifier to play nationally at The Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio later this summer.
“I can’t wait!,” Zayne said about his first appearance in the tournament.
Zayne says his favorite pro golfer is Tiger Woods and second favorite is Rickie Fowler. Zayne is an only child and his parents are Ronnie and Tiffany. When he’s isn’t playing golf, he loves spending time on Lake Lanier.
